Application Of Continuum Mechanics To Soil Compaction, G. E. Vandenberg, Wesley F. Buchele, L. E. Malvern

Wesley F. Buchele

To study the soil compaction prob­lem, the amount of compaction change at every point in the soil resulting from loads applied to the surface must be de­termined. If this change can be calculated, the effects obtained from varying the loads can be observed and thereby information gained which will permit predicting and possibly controlling compaction. Such cal­culations require a suitable theory of soil mechanics to formulate a mathematical model describing the soil.
