For quality control of compacted earth fill, the measurement of in-situ density is essential. All types of earthwork constructions such as embankments, dams, roads, airfields and trenches need density determination. For quick determination of in-situ density of soil, a core-cutter of known volume is driven into the soil by a rammer. The core-cutter is removed, trimmed and the soil obtained is weighed and dried for a moisture and density check.
