<p>This paper presents the shear strength study of a saturated and unsaturated lateritic tropical soil, via triaxial compression tests on undisturbed (loose) and compacted soil samples. The shear strength of the soil increases hyperbolically with increasing ...

This paper presents results of ground vibrations measured on two projects where ground densification was performed with both conventional Dynamic Compaction, using a crane, and Rapid Impact Compaction using an excavator mounted hydraulic hammer rig. The gathered ...

<p>The agricultural potential of Latosols of the Brazilian Cerrado region is high, but when intensively cultivated under inappropriate management systems, the porosity can be seriously reduced, leading to rapid soil degradation. Consequently, accelerated erosion ...

<p>This manual describes the operational safety procedures to be followed when using Nuclear Moisture &ndash; Density Gauges under the control of the Geotechnical Engineering Bureau, New York State Department of Transportation. This manual must be used in ...

Vibratory compaction generates lateral stresses, which result in a permanent increase of the horizontal earth pressure and overconsolidation. The practical importance of these effects is discussed.

The most useful tool for deciding which soils can be dentified by dynamic methods is the cone penetration test. Based on the CPT data, variation of the coefficient of earth pressure in normally consolidated and overconsolidated soil and effect of soil compaction ...

<p>Unanticipated settlement of compacted earth fill has been a continuing problem for embankments managed by the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT). This report contains the results of an investigation of current compaction specifications, with particular ...

<p>Soil compaction is defined as the method of mechanically increasing the density of soil. In construction, this is a significant part of the building process. If performed improperly, settlement of the soil could occur and result in unnecessary maintenance ...
