Application of high impact energy dynamic compaction (HIEDYC) for infrastructure projects

It is common in many countries to develop infrastructure works on marginal (soft or loose soils) or reclaimed areas due to a shortage of land for development works. Typical infrastructure works range from housing developments, industrial estates, container port terminals, airports, oil terminals and tank farms, pipe lines, roads and similar facilities. In developing infrastructure facilities on marginal land the cost of foundations or land development can be prohibitive. This paper discusses the use of the high impact energy dynamic compaction (HIEDYC) technique to treat loose or soft marginal land to enable cost effective and technically sound construction of infrastructure works. This paper provides an overview of the HIEDYC technique, its applications and typical results.
