Before constructing any structure on the soil, we make the base stable and strong so that it does not settle in large amounts with time. This process of making the soil base solid before the construction of structure is called compaction.   In the process of compaction mechanical energy is ap

Imagine we want to build a house. When we begin laying the foundation, it's natural for the soil below to undergo some initial settlement. However, it is essential that this settlement remains within acceptable limits and doesn't lead to future problems.   That's why, before co

Soil itself is used as a construction material while constructing engineering structures such as roads, earth dams, landfills etc. It is also used in the foundation of buildings.   But as we know soil is made up of small particles and they have some amount of empty space between them which

A soil mass is composed of small solid particles which we call the soil grains. These soil grains when depositing in a soil mass arranges themselves in a way that some amount of empty space is enclosed between them. We call these spaces voids. Water can flow though these voids.   The proper
