Abstract

 The compacting performance of light weight compactors, which are often employed for soil compaction at narrow areas such as backfilling for underground pipes or around concrete structures, was discussed theoretically with computation for underground stress. The discussion suggested an index which quantitatively indicates the performance of the light weight compactors in soil compaction and its reliability was examined through test pits experiments with 5 types of small compactors. A practical method is suggested, based on those results, for determining the construction conditions of the sort of compactors and the lift thickness which are suitable for the in-situ soil conditions.
