What is Intelligent Compaction (IC)

Intelligent compaction equipment measures and records the quality of compaction during the compaction process. The compactor’s force changes in real time to increase compaction where needed, while preventing over compaction. The equipment uses a global positioning system to create a map that shows the quality of compaction across the entire surface of each lift.
