Compaction may be defined as the process of packing the soil particle by reducing the air voids in the soil, be mechanical means
The compaction process can be achieved by rolling, tamping or vibration for a short duration. It reduces the air voids mainly and thereby reduces the volume of soil mass with the increase of its dry density. Compaction is measured it term of dry density of the soil mass.
