Intelligent Compaction for Soils and Subbase Materials

Intelligent compaction (IC) is a construction method relatively new to the USA that uses modern vibratory rollers equipped with IC components and technologies. The IC technology and IC-related quality assurance (QA) specifications on earthwork have existed in Europe for more than 20 years. Under the on-going FHWA/TPF IC studies, various single drum IC rollers from manufacturers around the world have been demonstrated at full scale projects targeting cohesive/noncohesive soils, granular subbase, and stabilized base . This TechBrief summarizes the current information on IC for soils and subbase materials and concludes with several recommendations.
