We use a concrete vibrator to acheive compaction.

Even though there are hand compaction techniques available they are comparitively less effective and are used for unimportant works. For hand compaction, in order to acheive a better result, water is added slightly more. As a result, the strength of the concrete decreases.

Whereas, for compaction by vibration, a concrete of sufficient workability and low water cement ratio is expected. Compaction can be done even for Stiff concrete.

Mainly causes of concrete vibrator used properly, this will help consolidate concrete and will reduce the amount of air pockets inside the concrete mass. You can use internal vibrators or external vibrator depending on the application and where the concrete is being placed.

In civil engineering field, we can see many type of concrete vibrator. And when provide concrete, there are present lot of air voids, that's mostly bad for strength grain, that's why we must used concrete vibrator to reduce air voids.
