Changes in Mechanical Parameters of Soil, Considering the Effect of Additional Compaction of Embankment

The paper presents selected test results obtained during construction of multi-layer soil embankments. It also provides the analysis of a new geotechnical approach, used for construction of non-typical soil embankments, which takes into account the effect of additional compaction of individual layers. The tests were conducted in in-situ conditions. The testing area constituted a foundation for a large industrial object, i.e. a clinker storage silo of storage capacity of 200,000 tons. The obtained results allow for the assessment of the influence of compaction of the higher layers on the increased soil compaction of the lower layers.
