    Can you take densities when the soil has been compacted several weeks before making the test? This doubt comes from the uncertainty of the effect of the percentage of water applied when it was being compacted, and after several weeks this water have been lost, so the density will increase in comparison to the one it was when it was recently compacted, is it representative?
