This manual provides the technical information necessary formilitary personnel to obtain samples and perform engineering tests andcalculations on soils, bituminous paving mixtures, and concrete. These tests andcalculations are required to achieve proper design with these materials andadequate control over their use in military construction.
This manual covers soils, aggregates, bituminous cements, bituminouspaving mixtures, portland cement concrete, and stabilized soil includingstabilizing agents such as bitumens, cements, lime, fly ash, and chemicalmodifiers. The manual gives detailed instructions for taking adequaterepresentative test samples and step-by-step procedures for making physicalproperties tests and for recording, calculating, and evaluating the test results.The manual explains methods for designing bituminous paving mixtures andportland cement concrete and ways of stabilizing soil. It also gives the proceduresand tests required to control the manufacture of these mixtures. The manualdescribes the tools and equipment for performing these tests and contains generalinstructions for the care, calibration, and use of test equipment.
This manual is adopted for use by Navy personnel. Certaintests and procedures prescribed differ in principle or method and are moredetailed than counterpart tests currently required by the Navy for newconstruction at Navy installations, including those in forward areas. Althoughthis manual provides general guidance for materials and soils testing, the designof new structures and facilities will be based on the results obtained frommethods and procedures outlined in Naval Facilities Engineering CommandDesign Manual (NAVFAC DM) -7.1 and NAVFAC DM-7.2. When methods andprocedures prescribed by the Navy differ from those in this manual, the Navy’smethods will take precedence.DISTRIHUTION RESTRICTION: Approved for public release: distribution isunlimited.
