Abstract

The paper describes an Industrial Park development, on the British Columbia coast, where Dynamic Consolidation was chosen to densify a loose rockfill prior to construction of a modern high capacity sawmill on shallow foundations. The design and execution of the compaction are described. The in situ tests used to monitor the compaction are described and results presented. It is concluded that the desired result was achieved, and this is supported by a survey of foundation elevations taken four years after construction.

Improvement of a Dumped Rockfill Foundation by Dynamic Consolidation

The paper describes an Industrial Park development, on the British Columbia coast, where Dynamic Consolidation was chosen to densify a loose rockfill prior to construction of a modern high capacity sawmill on shallow foundations. The design and execution of the compaction are described. The in situ tests used to monitor the compaction are described and results presented.
