Explosive Compaction

Explosive Compaction (EC) involves placing a charge at depth in a borehole in loose soil and then detonating the charge.

Dynamic compaction
Dynamic Compaction Techniques

Dynamic compaction is a technique used for in-situ densification of granular soil deposits by heavy impact.

Vibratory surface compaction
Vibratory Surface Compaction

Vibratory surface compaction is a method used on the surface of a reclamation area to increase the density, shear strength, and stiffness of the fill.

Compaction

Compaction is used to increase the density of fill and improve properties such as compressibility, shear resistance and resistance against liquefaction.
