25 Ton Dynamic Compaction (Pounder)
Dynamic Compaction is a Ground Modification technique whereby loose soils can be effectively and economically densified to improve their mechanical characteristics and allow the construction of different types of structures, as an economical alternative to deep foundations or soil replacement.
The method involves dropping heavy steel pounders repeatedly on the ground at regularly spaced intervals.
We can Manufacture a Pounder up to 40 tons.
Advantages: Capable of compacting a wide variety of weak soils Treated granular soils and fills have increased density, friction angle, and stiffness Can improve soil conditions on marginal sites to the extent that shallow foundations can be used without deep excavation or piling Removal of compressible, contaminated fills can sometimes be avoided
