A wide range of dynamic and static penetrometers are available, with different types being used in different conditions of sub-strata materials. However, the objective of all probing is the same, namely to provide a profile of penetration resistance with depth, ...Continue reading
Geotechnical laboratory tests consists of number of tests for the properties of soil. These tests are done to find out the suitability of soil for the construction projects. Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory ExperimentsDIFFERENT TYPES OF SHEAR TESTS AND DRAINAGE ...Continue reading
Compaction test of soil is also known as Proctor’s test is done to understand compaction characteristics of different soils with change in moisture content. TO DETERMINE THE COMPACTION CHARACTERISTICS OF A SOIL SPECIMEN BY PROCTOR’S TEST Theory: Compaction is the process of densification ...Continue reading
TO DETERMINE THE CONSOLIDATION CHARACTERISTICS OF A SOIL SAMPLE Theory: Consolidation of a saturated soil occurs due to expulsion of water under static, sustained load. The consolidation characteristics of soils are required to predict the magnitude and the rate of settlement. The ...Continue reading
