A mathematical algorithm is described and presented for estimating optimum moisture content and maximum dry density from moisture-density data obtained from ASTM Standard Test Methods D 698 and D 1557, which are often, even though incorrectly, referred to as the Standard Proctor Test and Modified Proctor Test, respectively. However, the algorithm can be used to analyze moisture-density data obtained by non-standard procedures. The algorithm is written in Fortran IV for use with the IBM 370/165 computer and Calcomp 663 drum plotter. Documentation of this computer program includes detailed input instructions, coding sheets, flow chart, variable descriptions, example problem, example output, and example job control cards.
