The Author's practice was to dry soils in his central laboratory at 50-60C. How did he dry out soils in his field laboratories and what correlation did he obtain? He stated that there had been cases where compaction had weakened soils. This the speaker had found to be true with schistose materials which broke down on compaction, and with fine semipermeable materials such as slightly plastic sand-clays and, gravels where pore pressure might be readily set up.
