Abstract : Soil compaction is one of the most effective methods for soil stabilization and is performed in most earthworks of earth dams and road embankments, etc. However, because its quality control depends upon tests performed at only several points in the fields to estimate such factors as the dry density, water content and C.B.R., misjudgement can occur when judging the degree of soil compaction required.
