Importance Of Compaction

IMPORTANCE OF COMPACTION
 
The process of compaction changes the characteristics of the soil mass in the following way
1.Improves the dry density of the sample
2.Increase cohesive value of sample
3.Increase angle of internal friction
4.Improves shear strength of soil mass
5.Reduces the shrinkage and compressibility
6.Reduces seepage through soil mass
7.Improves bearing capacity
8.Reduces the chances of settlement of structure.
