Fill and Backfill for Foundations: Construction Control
Do you have control policies established for your construction project? Are your personnel able to follow through on these policies?
The heterogeneous nature of soil makes it the most variable construction material with which engineers are required to work. Research in soil mechanics and experience gained recently in constructing large earth embankments have provided additional knowledge toward understanding and predicting the behavior of a soil as a construction material. However, only with careful control can engineers ensure that backfill construction will satisfactorily fulfill the intended functions. Learn general construction controls, the importance of owner acceptance of control, and valuable inspection activities.
