Compacted Fill

  • Jack W. Hilf
Chapter

Abstract

As a construction material, soil has been used since antiquity with both success and failure. The widespread availability and relative economy of earth material continue to make it attractive for use in foundations, embankments, and as backfill. It has long been recognized, first empirically and then scientifically, that compaction changes the physical properties of soils—in some cases tremendously. For example, a properly compacted, well-graded gravel may be 15 times as resistant to deformation under a bearing load as the same material in the loose state.
