Land Redevelopment Involving Ground Treatment By Dynamic Compaction

Andrew Crossley, Graham Thomson

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference Paperpeer-review


The design of Dynamic Compaction (DC) for any site relies heavily on the interpretation of historical data from previous projects of similar ground conditions. Details of previous DC projects are therefore of interest to engineers dealing with potential ground treatment sites. Comments are also provided on appropriate site investigation and quality control testing. Two instances are reported where conditions were encountered which prevented the DC technique from being fully effective.
