As a consequence of the flood in 2002, two embankments in the federal state Lower Austria were refurbished in 2009. The refurbishment was realized by Impulse compaction. This innovative method for soil improvement and the quality control for the optimal application is described in this paper. In addition to the conventional compaction
control by dynamic probing, some geoseismic measurements were carried out. The results of the seismic measurements and the dynamic probing were compared.
