I need some help --- What is the difference between dry density and wet density in soil compaction? I have seen "dry density" used in Proctor Test results, and I also see people use "Dry Density" or "Wet Density" in nuclear Gage Testing, What are the differences and when and what should you specify for pipe trench and general earthwork? Thanks.
