Complexities of Managing a Deep Dynamic Compaction, Talking Trash, Apr. 2018

The best way for developers with less experience in Deep Dynamic Compaction (DDC) is find an experienced firm with a significant number of similar projects and trust the outcome of the work by that design firm. Otherwise, you will have a difficult time sorting out the complexities and questions that alternative designs bring forward. The
claims of less expensive scenarios without long-term performance justification as to how the foundation will behave over the long term are too risky.

The combination of dealing with a new concept for which the developer has little experience and justifying the financial aspects of a properly designed DDC program can make a project more difficult and time consuming than necessary.
