Vibratory rollers and plates are used to improve the strength and deformation properties of soil during construction. The vibration characteristics, if monitored, can be exploited to assess the condition of the soil during and after construction. This presentation describes the results of a research effort to extract soil stiffness during the vibratory plate and roller compaction process. To understand roller-measured stiffness readings, in-situ stress-strain behavior was characterized during vibratory roller passes.
