USE OF MODELS IN THE STUDY OF STRESSES DURING SOIL COMPACTION

These stresses result in an increase in soil density. The greatest effect during the compaction results from developing a vertical component of stress in the soil. This component of stress can be measured experimentally. This stress is a function of many soil factors and the characteristics of the compaction machine. Considering the particular and, in many aspects, unknown processes of these effects on the compaction, the determination of soil compaction with models becomes very difficult. The system equation in the model is obtained by means of dimensional and numerical analysis using special computer programs.
