Kneading Compactor


Product Code: CS-1000

Kneading Compactor

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.
