Özet

The speed-up plaque load experiment and a seismic refraction survey were used in quality-control tests of compaction in the runway grounds of the Suleyman Demirel Airport, Isparta, located to the north of Burdur Lake, Turkey. The straight-line correlation between plaque load experiments and seismic velocities (V-P and V-S) has shown that compaction is sufficient when both the V-P and V-S values exceed 590m/s and 379rn/s, respectively. In addition, two-dimensional velocity models for both P- and S-waves map out the level of compaction along the profiles.
