English abstract:
ABSTRACT: This paper presents results of experimental and numerical studies concerning the dynamic effects of the Rapid
Impact Compactor (RIC) on its environment. The RIC is a dynamic compaction device for middle-deep ground improvement
based on the piling hammer technology used to increase the bearing capacity of soils through controlled impacts. The procedure
of the assessment of the damage potential of RIC on adjacent buildings, buried pipes, etc., which must be performed reliably in
advance, is described in detail. The results of experimental investigations on the vibrations induced by the RIC demonstrate the
successful application of the innovative compaction method in built-up area. This conclusion is supported by the outcomes of numerical simulations
