Soil is excavated from a borrow to construct an embankment with a net volume of 50,000 cy with 95% of Modified Proctor maximum dry density of 110 pcf with a Modified Proctor optimum water content of 8%. Dry density of soil in borrow 114 pcf. Soil specific gravity 2.35. Water content in borrow 16.5%. What would be the minimum number of truckloads required to transport the soil from the borrow? Each truck holds 8.2 cy of soil with void ratio of 1.12.
