Consolidation Test on Soil by Consolidometer or Oedometer

Consolidation Test is used to determine the rate and magnitude of settlement in soils. The settlement values obtained by this test are due to primary consolidation only which is 90% of the total consolidation. The results of consolidation test are ...

Shear Strength of Soil by Vane Shear Test

Vane shear test is used to determine the undrained shear strength of soils especially soft clays. This test can be done in laboratory or in the field directly on the ground. Vane shear test gives accurate results for soils of ...

Shear Strength of Soil by Direct Shear Test

Direct shear test or Box shear test is used to determine the shear strength of the soil. It is more suitable for cohesionless soils. Shear Strength of Soil by Direct Shear Test Shear strength of a soil is its maximum resistance to ...

MACKINTOSH PROBE TEST

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, ...

GEOTECHNICAL LABORATORY TESTS

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 Experiments DIFFERENT TYPES OF SHEAR TESTS AND DRAINAGE CONDITIONS The ...

Triaxial Shear Test on Soil – Procedure,Advantages

Triaxial shear strength test on soil measures the mechanical properties of the soil. In this test, soil sample is subjected to stress, such that the stress resulted in one direction will be different in perpendicular direction. The material properties of ...
