Dynamic Compaction: A Proven Ground Improvement Method for Landfill Sites (Woods et al, 2023)

During the past 40 years, ground improvement has become a valuable tool for the geotechnical community, as the number of sites with suitable bearing soils become fewer and farther between. Similarly, as time moves on, more sites come into focus for development that have received any number of various landfill materials, be it municipal solid waste (MSW) from households, construction and demolition (C&D) debris from construction activities, or simply soil materials exported from another site. As a result, the challenges to engineers and contractors to design and construct new developments within budget and on time continue to increase.
