GROUND IMPROVEMENT BY DYNAMIC COMPACTION OF SOIL [VIDEO]

This method can be used to improve all types of non-cohesive soils, mixed soils or those containing a limited amount of cohesive material, as well as landfill sites Like garbage dumps or bad tips. There are also many examples of refusal and industrial waste dump which have been successfully treated by dynamic compaction. However, this method is less suitable for soils with high silt content and is mainly unsuitable for clay soils.

advantages and disadvantages

The main advantage of dynamic consolidation is Simplicity of technology that does not require any advanced equipment, or skill on the part of operators. The very process is a test and correction tool; It provides geotechnical engineer Immediately Feedback on the ground reaction. it a. can be applied to wide range of deposits Large boulders, broken concrete blocks, silty and clay materials, building rubble debris and even disintegrating cover sanitary landfills. since it produces more uniform compressibility, This Reduces Differential Settlements, Work can be done in rainy season. It can be applied on pervious and semi pervious deposits under the water table. Feather Cost On the other hand, it is significantly less expensive than other ground improvement methods.
