Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: This report presents a review of the materials, specifications, procedures, equipment, and testing pertinent to construction and compaction control of the earth-fill embankment of DeGray Dam, Caddo River, Arkansas, constructed by the U.S. Army Engineer District, Vicksburg. This report includes summation and analyses of the compaction control data submitted by the district to the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station. Statistical analyses are presented on the variation of fill water content from laboratory optimum water content and the variation of fill dry density from laboratory maximum dry density. These analyses are based on results of field density sampling in each major zone of the embankment. The overall compaction control achieved for each major embankment zone is indicated by frequency histograms, cumulative frequency distributions, and various statistical parameters for variation of both water content and density.
