Compaction is a vital part of the construction process. It is used for support of structural entities such as building foundations, roadways, walkways, and earth retaining structures to name a few. Compaction is also required on pavements to increase its strength and life expectancy.
Pavements is a form of exterior surface covering, typically raised and used by pedestrians, running parallel to, and on either side of a road. They provide an area that is separated from, and so protected from vehicular traffic.
Compaction is the process of reducing the volume of material by compression. Purpose of the compaction is to reduce the amount of air voids in the asphalt layer and to move the aggregate in the layer closer together, which results in increased durability, material longevity, and creation of a smooth and uniform surface.
