STUDYING APPLICATIONS OF EXPLOSION ENERGY TO ENHANCE SOIL DENSITY IN FOUNDATION
Keywords:Foundation, soil density, moisture, explosion energy
This article applies experimental methods in the laboratory to determine the increase of soil density with explosive energy. The results show that soil moisture, explosive mass, and the distance between compacted soil and the explosion centre have influenced the compaction of the studying soil significantly. In addition, these results illustrate that the research problem is feasible and can be applied to compact the foundation with explosion energy.
