In Situ Dynamic Compaction Tests on Subgrade for Reconstruction of Old Road to Expressway

Differential settlement of the subgrade is the main problem encountered in the reconstruction of old road to expressway. Numerical analysis indicated that the treatment to new nature ground is the key to decreasing the differential settlement. Dynamic compaction is an effective method of improving ground. In order to optimize its construction parameters, dynamic-compaction-induced dynamic pore pressure and dynamic soil stress and the dissipation of excess pore pressure after tamping were measured and analyzed. For the soil subgrade tested, the maximum tamping number shouldn’t exceed 4 and the dynamic compactions of the next time should be carried out two days after the previous.
