The Model of Soil Compaction Process and Concept of Smart Compactor
The soil compaction is very important process during building and road construction. There are many various machineries used for improve the soil load baring capacities like rollers or vibrating plates. We can compact not only the soil but the concrete or very popular composite as asphalt - bituminous composition as well. Sometimes these procedures are implemented close to buildings or other sensitive to vibration construction. Currently we have some application of compaction level monitoring. But sometimes we need to create the model of ground behavior for future prognoses. In paper the problem of soil compaction and 3D cellular model of ground which describes process of ground flow, displacement and compaction will be presented. This model is made in MATLAB/SIMULINK software and describes dynamically changing soil feature. For better presentation model was simplified to 2D version. Basing on simulation results the concept of smart compactor was created and described.
