The Kneading Compactor was designed as part of the Humvee mix design method to produce specimens which were more simulative of the compaction produced by rollers in the field. A tamping foot of 20cm² is pushed down onto mixture enclosed in a 4 inch diameter mould. The tamping foot is then retracted and the mould rotated through 60°. This kneading action is far more simulative of a field roller than the impact compaction used in the Marshall mix design method.
