Assessment of Quality of Soil Compaction in a Construction Project Performed in the Campus of Majmaah University, KSA

Yahya Yaseen Al-Jahmany


Abstract: The soil compaction process represents the nerve of the soil processing in the construction process. It determines and controls the quality of the pavement of flagstone and asphalt pavement. Yet, some contractors tend to spend less time in performing the soil compaction process in order to save time and money. This procedure affects the structure of buildings and makes it under the risk of tilting, sinking or collapse. Hence, the project owner should check up the quality of the soil compaction process to ensure avoiding these construction risks. Majmaah University in KSA is a new borne university where it has current construction projects that need following the application of the standard specifications in all the construction works. This project was performed to check out the quality of the soil compaction in the construction projects inside the campus of Majmaah University, KSA. Representative soil samples were taken from the field which represents the soil layers in some engineering construction projects currently performed at Majmaah University, KSA. Then, the engineering tests for the soil layers related to the compaction process in the field were done. Then, the standard proctor test was performed for the representative soil samples to detect the maximum dry unit weight and the percent of optimum water content for the soil samples in the laboratory of the civil and environmental engineering department at Majmaah university, KSA. Then, the assessment of the results of the soil compaction performed in the lab with the standard proctor test and specifications. Finally, the judgment on the compaction process for soil layers in the construction project achieved by the executive company in the campus of Majmaah University, KSA how much they meet the standard specifications.
