Description
The degree of soil compaction is dependent on many variables including soil type and soil conditions as well as vehicle type and traffic density. Soil compaction can lead to limited plant development because of poor aeration, low nutrient and water availability, slow water permeability and mechanical impedance to root growth. Documented studies concerned with pipeline construction have indicated that soil compaction can be a problem. Soil compaction is dealt with by acceptance, alleviation, avoidance and controlled traffic. The extent of soil compaction is often determined by measuring the change of a parameter as a consequence of a compacting effort.
