Smart Compaction for Infrastructure Materials

The objectives of this project is to explore the compaction mechanisms of particulate infrastructure material from the meso scale, establish the correlation among compactor motion, particle motion and material properties (volumetric properties and engineering properties), and ultimately propose an automatic approach for real-time compaction quality control, i.e., smart compaction. This study will consist of two phases, laboratory scale evaluation and field investigation.
