The process repeated again after adding suitable amount of water to the soil in an increasing order. The optimum moisture content was 14% 3.3 Soil Classification In the Indian Standard Classification System, classification of soil is done on the basis of their gradation characteristics and using Plasticity Index. Coarse grained soils that consist of more than 12% fines are classified as Silty Gravel or Silty sand if the fines are silty in character (i.e. it lies below the A-Line); They are classified as Clayey Gravel or Clayey sand if fines are clayey in character (i.e. the limits plot above the A-line on the Plasticity chart.
Figure10.2: Triaxial Test Apparatus Stresses The stresses acting on a Triaxial sample during the test are as shown in Figure 10.3 From vertical equilibrium we have = The term F/A is known as the deviator stress, and is usually given the symbol . Hence we can write Figure 10.3: Stresses on a Triaxial Test Sample The axial and radial stresses are principal stresses. The object of the triaxial test is to determine the shear strength of the soil which is obtained using the Mohr-Coulomb theory. τ = c + σtanϕ 10.2 PLANNING AND ORGANIZATION 10.2.1 Apparatus and Knowledge of Equipment 1.

But it could be also a result of a partial leaching of salts from the soil because NaCl is much more soluble than CaSO4. It has been observed in the Euphrates Basin, that gypsum is recrystallized and redistributed in the soil profile after leaching of other, more soluble, salts. Gypsiferous soils cover approximately 100 million hectors in the world (Verheye and Boyagiev, 1997). Gypsum not only dissolve in presence of water it also changes geotechnical properties of
Then porepressure ratio is equal to pore pressure coefficients B. The knowledge of pore pressure parameters is essential for the determination of effective stress from total stress. Skempton gave the pore pressure parameters which express the response of pore pressure due to changes in the total stress under undrained conditions. These parameters are used to predict pore water pressure in the field under similar condi-tions. Pore pressure coefficient A fluctuates with both the stress value and the rate of strain, due mainly to the variation of Δud with the deviator stress for a given soil.
PERMEABLE PAVEMENT DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION Palash Pandit Civil Engineering Dept, OIST, Bhopal. ABSTRACT Permeable pavements typically consist of pervious concrete, porous asphalt .Permeable pavements infiltrate stormwater, filter and clean contaminants and promote groundwater recharge. They have gained substantial popularity and have become an integral part of low impact design and best management practices for storm water management. In order to be effective, permeable pavement must be designed to provide sufficient structural capacity to accommodate the vehicle loadings, manage stormwater flowing into the surface and soil subgrade, as well water draining out of the base/ subbase. 1.INTRODUCTION Permeable pavement is a method of paving
COMPACTION 5. UNCONFINED COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH All these are laboratory test which conduct on soil sample individually or with combination of soil with chemicals, the percentage of used during testing is 3%, 7%, 10% of lime and 8%, 12% 16%, of sodium hydroxide. Chemical stabilizer is used for mixing of chemicals with soil in fine proportions so that during testing chemicals should be thoroughly mixed with soil as these chemicals are available in powder form or in chips form which are not easily mixed. The table shows the value of clayey soil sample of the above test: Table 1: Details of soil sample PHYSICAL PROPERTIES VALUE GRAIN SIZE DISTRIBUTION GRAVEL SAND SILT +

Coarse aggregates are crushed rocks. The crushed coarse aggregate of maximum size 12.5mm obtained from Gurgaon Crushing zone are used in the present study.
This experiment will evaluate various ways to decrease or prevent soil from eroding. Measuring how much soil washes away as water is poured onto it determines the most effective method. This will help us create new ways to stop water erosion. BODY Erosion is the process in which the Earth’s surface gets worn down. There are 5 types of erosion that occur: water, wind, glacier, coastal, and mass movement.
LITERATURE REVIEW 2.1 General The natural soil behaves like an Expansive soil or cracking soil because these have tendency of shrinking and cracking when moisture content decreases and also have tendency of swelling when moisture content increases. The moisture may come from water leakage or sewer lines, rain, flooding. Soil generally exhibits these properties, when it contains montmorillonite clay minerals. The engineering properties of Natural soil includes plasticity characteristics, compaction properties, volume stability its strength may be enhanced by adding materials such as Rice husk ash, Sugarcane bagasse ash, cement, sodium chloride etc. The changes in properties of these soils primarily depend upon the type and amount of binder,
(e) Design safety factors : The designing engineer shall use the following minimum safety factors: 1.75 for horizontal shear at base of fill; 1.5 for horizontal shear within the fill due to seepage through the outer face; 1.5 for bearing capacity of foundation soils; 1.5 for protection against shear failure of any circular arc in either inside or outside slope. It is imperative that water pressure distribution be included in the analyses. Construction phase: This phase includes preparation of subsequent construction contracts, review of selected construction contracts, site visits, support for claims and modifications, development of operation and maintenance (O&M) manuals, and preparation and maintenance of as-built drawings. Site visits must be made to verify that conditions match the assumptions used in designing the project features. Operation and maintenance
