    their opinion, the fill has been placed and compacted in accordance with the specification requirements and to the satisfaction of the Engineer. E. Fill: Fill is all soil or soil/rock materials placed to raise the grade of the site to finish grade. F. Import Material: Material hauled in from off-site Size: KB. operating activities having responsibility for the design and construction of earth and rock-fill dams. References Required and related publications are listed in Appendix A. Overview of Manual The objective of this manual is to present guidance on the design, construction, and performance monitoring of and modifications to embankment.

    When rock is used for embankment construction and has such a large top size as to make the material impractical to conduct density tests, such material may be compacted with crawler-tread equipment or with approved vibratory equipment, or both. Each lift is compacted thoroughly by successive passes back and forth with the tread areas overlapping. The Construction Supervisor who understands these issues does his job better. A bit more understanding of the Proctor test yields some additional information. Many specification books require the soil to be compacted to 95% of modified Proctor testing (ASTM D ). This standard uses a 10 pound hammer and an 18” drop.

    An embankment refers to a volume of earthen material that is placed and compacted for the purpose of raising the grade of a roadway (or railway) above the level of the existing surrounding ground surface. A fill refers to a volume of earthen material that is placed and compacted for the purpose of filling in a . Example #1: A project requires fill to be compacted to 95% relative density with relation to the standard Proctor (ASTM D).Laboratory results for the standard Proctor indicated that the soil has a maximum dry density of kN/m 3 ( lb/ft 3), and an optimum moisture content of %.. After compaction of the fill soils with a vibratory roller, field testing with a sand cone, nuclear.

When you begin studying from this book use the following approach: 1. Print out e-book and place in 3” binder. Label the Binder Construction Engineering and tab each chapter.

Make sure the construction engineering cheat sheet is in the front of the binder. Add to it as needed. Size: KB. • All fill materials must be free from vegetable matter and the material must be approved as suitable.

• The material should be of an appropriate nature and at a moisture content that it can be compacted to form a stable layer.

• Generally embankments should be constructed in mm compacted layers parallel to the finished grade of the Size: 1MB. Estimating Earthwork Earthwork includes: 1. Excavation 2.

Soil compaction is defined as the method of mechanically increasing the density of soil. In construction, this is a significant part of the building process. If performed improperly, settlement of the soil could occur and result in unnecessary maintenance costs or structure failure.

If unsuitable material is left in place and backfilled, it may compress over a long period under the weight of the earth fill, causing settlement cracks in the fill or in any structure supported by the fill.

of fill placement, and (5) variations in placement water contents and compacted densities that must be expected with normal control of fill construction. Other factors that must be considered in selecting values of design parameters, which can be eval uated only. economical haul distance is the mass diagram method.

A mass diagram is a graph or curve on which the algebraic sums of cuts and fills are plotted against linear distance. Before these cuts and fills are tabulated, the swells and compaction factors are considered in computing the yardage. Earthwork that is in place will yield more yardage when excavated and less yardage when being c.

Poorly Compacted Fill Material If the fill material on a lot is not sufficiently compacted to support the weight of the structure above it, there will be foundation problems. The problem can be from the mix of odd fill materials, and from poorly compacted fill, or both.
