SOIL COMPACTION HANDBOOK 7 Effect of moisture The response of soil to moisture is very important, as the soil must carry the load year-round. Rain, for example, may transform soil into a plastic state or even into a liquid.

replaced most trenchers, and hoes with compaction wheels have eliminated most trench jetting. In the first four chapters of this book we’ll cover the basics: reading and following survey stakes, understanding excavation plans, and how excavation contractors use contour line drawings.

There are several terms which should be defined. Excavation is often used as a broad term which includes cut (or excavation) and fills (or embankment). Cut is defined as removing material to lower the elevation of an area. Fill is defined as placing material to raise the elevation of an area. Compaction must take place during a fill operation.
