Dynamic compaction – Papers

Dynamic compaction manual
Federal Highway Administration US (FHWA).

“This manual provides state-of-the-practice methods and techniques to assist the highway engineer in the planning, design, and construction monitoring of dynamic compaction to improve the load supporting capacity of weak foundation soils…”.

Numerical modeling of dynamic compaction in cohesive soils
Khaled Mostafa.

“The work presented throughout this report is concerned with studying the dynamic compaction in cohesive soils. Two-dimension and three-dimension finite element models were developed. Modified Cam-Clay soil constitutive model, which captures the highly nonlinear behavior of soil, has been used throughout the presented work…”.

A case study on soil improvement with heavy dynamic compaction
Durgunoglu, H.T. et al.

“In this paper, soil improvement works by means of heavy dynamic compaction method performe d for the foundation subsoil of Carrefoursa Hypermarket and Trade Center in Bursa, Turkey is given as a case study. In order to increase the bearing capacity of the foundations subsoils as well as to regulate the total and differential settlements underneath the foundations Heavy Dynamic Compaction (HDC) together with High Energy Pillars (HEP) are implemented….”.

Application of dynamic compaction in a project with smart acceptance criteria
Babak Hamidi, Serge Varaksin and Hamid Nikraz.

Liquefaction mitigation in silty soils using dunamic compaction and wick drain
R. NASHED et al.

“In recent years dynamic compaction (D.C) has becomean economically attractive method of ground remediation of loose cohesionless soils for liquefaction hazards mitigation. The current practice for evaluating feasibility and choosing the operational parameters of the technique at a site depends mainly on field trials, past experience, and empirical equations based on reported records…”.
