Abstract

Embankment is one of the most important soil structures that correspond with the diversity of performance. The typical regulation for embankment is the degree of compaction at the top of embankment. In order to properly prevent embankment failures due to natural disasters improvements of quality and function of embankments are considered. In this paper, firstly, improvements of compaction effect are investigated by applying a general compaction method to the test embankment. Secondly, in order to develop a new system for evaluating the degree of compaction on the embankment slope a non-destructive testing was performed in the laboratory and site. Furthermore, the relationship between the degree of compaction and ground stiffness obtained from non-destructive testing were investigated in detail. An effective procedure for evaluating the quality of the embankment slope was proposed.
