MODERN MATERIAL COMPACTION WITH TOOLS IN ROAD BUILDING

THE DURABILITY OF A ROAD IS INFLUENCED BY THE CARRYING CAPACITY OF THE SUB-SOIL AND OFTEN REQUIRES ARTIFICIAL CONSOLIDATION. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CONSOLIDATION VARIETY AND THE SOIL ON THE ONE HAND AND THE CHOSEN CONSOLIDATION DEVICE AND ITS APPLICATION ON THE OTHER HAND, IS NOT YET SUFFICIENTLY KNOWN. DESCRIPTIONS OF THE PROCEDURE WHICH LEAD TO THE COMPACTION OF THE SOIL AND A REPORT OF THE TWO MAIN VARIETIES OF COMPACTION, THE STATIC AND THE DYNAMIC, ARE INCLUDED. THE TOOLS ARE DESCRIBED, ALSO THEIR OPERATION AND CORRECT APPLICATION. STATIC CONSOLIDATION DEVICES ARE'- PLAIN ROLLERS /ONE WHEEL, TANDEM, THREE WHEELS, AND TRIAXIAL ROLLERS/ AND TAMPING, SHEEPFOOT, LATTICE AND RUBBER-TIRED WHEEL ROLLERS. DYNAMIC CONSOLIDATION DEVICES ARE'- THE RAMMING DEVICES /CRANE RAMMERS SUCH AS RAMMING PLATES, EXPLOSION RAMMERS AND SMALL RAMMERS WITH OTTO OR ELECTROMOTOR OR AIR PRESSURE DRIVE/, AND THE VIBRATION DEVICES /VIBRATION ROLLERS AS A SINGLE WHEEL, TANDEM, THREE WHEEL OR TRAILER ROLLER, RECENTLY ALSO SHEEPFOOT ROLLERS, AS WELL AS PLATE VIBRATORS, EXECUTED AS A SMALL OR LARGE DEVICE, ALSO AS MULTIPLE PLATE ROLLER AND FINALLY THE DEPTH VIBRATOR/.
