In fuzzy topological spaces, compactness was first introduced by Chang [17], but it is well known by now that compactness in the sense of Chang does not satisfy the Tychonoff property.
Similarly, the effect of compactness upon the dynamic strength of geomaterials is clearly evident; upon compaction, bulk density is increased, thus increasing dynamic strength and retarding the development of accumulated plastic strain (Li, 2013; Li, Chen, & Jiang, 2013).
