Considering this, can sand be compacted?
Working on and compacting granular soils such as sands and gravels are difficult tasks. If voids in the sand are filled with water or are completely dry, no forces are holding the sand particles together. Applying vibration to those particles tends to create a dense configuration.
Secondly, what does 95% compaction mean? 95% compaction means that in-situ soil will be compacted to 95% of the maximum dry density by means of roller of different kinds (depending on the soil characteristics). Usually we do proctor compaction test to find out the maximum dry density(MDD) and optimum moisture content (OMC) of a soil.
Also, how do you compact sand without a compactor?
If you really don’t want to use a whacker, then the easiest way of ‘compacting’ sand is by simply saturating it. This just replaces the air voids with water and once that water flows through then you’re left with a nicely compacted sand.
Can you pour cement over sand?
Pour concrete over a solid, well-drained base of sand or gravel over clay and other poorly draining soils to provide even support.

What is a tamp tool?
It has a heavy cast concrete head with a flat bottom. It is a tool that might be used in road work, or for preparing ground prior to pouring a cement floor, etc.

Will a compactor level pavers?
Do I need sand under pavers?
A sand base surrounds and embraces the bricks and allows them to maintain their position securely. The surrounding sand also allows you to shift bricks a little at a time during installation to create an even walking surface.
