Tuesday, 13 February 2018


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.
