ABSTRACT

Compacting is an important technological operation when forming of earth fills and backfills, where appropriate earth stabilization and in the construction of highways and roads in the compaction of bituminous and other surfaces too. Compaction is technologies that occurs at the building during construction time. It should be optimally compress all of the individual layers of the respective construction works. The works must be carried out as precisely and as economically with the smallest number of crossings compacting machine with the inclusion of modern methods of measurement into the whole technology of compaction. The theoretical part of this contribution is complemented by a practical measurement of compacting machines fuel consumption during the one-year cycle with focus on the influence of human factors. Fuel consumption of earthmoving machines is one of the most significant costs of a construction company. Each construction company tries to reduce its own costs to the minimum to be able to quote the lowest possible price to a customer. Contracts are usually awarded to the company with the lowest quoted price of the work implementation.
