I did some CBR and 30 inches plate bearing tests in lean clay soils and got some interesting results. CBRs in average are 2. The plate tests results are 125 and 450 pci. I am planning to use the 125 pci result and neglect the 450 pci value as it is not in line with the type of tested soils and CBR results. I observed the plate tests and did not see anything that could affect the test results too drastically. Do you think that neglecting the highest value makes sense? Also, I still want to know what caused this high value...
