Overview

Compaction is a vital component necessary for the construction of quality roads.

Compaction influences the performance of all stages of construction:

  • Formation earthworks
  • Subgrade
  • Pavement layers
  • Surfacing
  • Service installation

This course examines the performance of each of the components of a road and shows the critical role that Compaction plays.

The presentation then looks at the way in which quality compaction can be achieved and how compaction performance can be monitored.
