Compaction of Forestry Roads

Natural deposits of road building material located close to the construction site are scarce and it is often a costly endeavor to transport the needed amount to the job site. To address these issues the researcher will concentrate his efforts on strengthening the sub-base of the road through compaction methods. Increasing the strength of the compacted layers could reduce the amount of surface aggregate needed for road construction thus reducing road construction and road maintenance costs.
