Rapid Impact Compaction | Ground Improvement | Advantages

Rapid impact compaction equipment

Rapid Impact Compaction Rapid Impact Compaction is a shallow ground improvement and densification technique. This method densifies shallow, granular soils, which repeatedly strike an impact plate on the ground surface using a hydraulic hammer. The energy is transferred to the underlying loose soils and regroups the particles into a denser formation. The impact locations are … Read more Rapid Impact Compaction | Ground Improvement | Advantages
