Efficient soil compaction is a critical factor in ensuring the performance and stability of constructed fills. Currently, the predominant approach for evaluating soil compaction during earthwork involves process control, considering factors such as lift thickness and the number of passes. Additionally, endpoint spot tests are conducted using tools like nuclear moisture density gauges to guarantee proper compaction levels and moisture management.
Soil compaction assessment is a routine procedure across all construction sites where earthwork is undertaken. This process encompasses various aspects of construction observation and inspection from the perspective of geotechnical engineering. Some of these observations include but are not limited to:
Earthwork Monitoring | Curtain Walls | Inspection of Reinforcing Steel | Roofing | Concrete Testing | Masonry | Structural Steel Testing | Waterproofing Inspections | Verification of Foundation Soil Bearing Capacity | Inspections of Deep Foundations
Maintaining a thorough approach to earthwork monitoring ensures not only the effectiveness of soil compaction but also the overall quality and safety of the construction project.
