This implied that when the DR calculated for these soils was determined at Dsmax solely by the clay content the true degree of compaction was understated as it leaned towards classifying these soils as noncompacted; this was a faulty evaluation, because when the calculation was performed by the Dsmax determined in the Proctor's test, the values showed that the soils were compacted.
The degree of compaction was suggested by Hakansson (1990) as an indicator of the physical status of soil.
