PVE Rapid Impact Compaction Rigs

Rapid Impact Compaction Rigs. For ground improvement in general three different methods can be recognized. For cohesive soils such as sand, gravel and some silty sands, compaction methods are a good solution for ground improvement. In case soils are difficult to compact such as clay, peat and soft silt layers soil replacement could be the solution.

Concrete Footing Fundamentals- Soil Types and Bearings

Soil that's loose has much less bearing capacity than the original soil. That's why it is so important to compact the trench bottom (use a vibrating plate compactor for sand or gravel soils, and a jumping jack compactor for silt or clay). If you don't compact that soil, you could get 1/2 inch of settlement in just the first 6 inches of soil.

Soil Compaction A Pressing Issue for Soil Treatment Areas

Compaction is most likely to occur with heavier soils like clay and loam, but when heavy equipment is used, sandy soils can also become compacted. Concerns Reduced oxygen transfer to the soil treatment area can decrease the life of the system, as it needs oxygen to break down the wastewater.
