Unconfined Compression (UC) Test

The primary purpose of this test is to determine the unconfined compressive strength, which is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions. According to the ASTM standard, the unconfined compressive strength (qu) is defined as the compressive stress at which an unconfined cylindrical specimen of

To Determine The Shrinkage Limit of Soil

Shrinkage dish, electric oven, mercury, electric balance, sieve#40, spatula and containers. Take a soil sample passing through sieve#40 and add some amount of water in it to form a thick uniform paste. Take the shrinkage dish, weigh it, and put some of the soil mixture in it by spatula, fill it and again weigh it. Place the shrinkage dish in the oven for 24hours.

To Determine the Specific Gravity of Soil

Take at least 25g of soil which has been passed through sieve#4 and place it in an oven at fixed temperature of 105-110C0for 24hours to dry it completely. Clean and dry the pycnometer thoroughly and find its mass (M1). Find the mass (M2) of pycnometer by placing dried soil in it. Add sufficient quantity of water to fill the pycnometer up to the given mark and then

How to Write a Soil Investigation Report | Lab Test Report

Soils reports, also called “geotechnical soils reports” are prepared by a licensed geotechnical engineer or a registered civil engineer experienced in soils engineering. A soils report may be required depending on the type of structure, loads and location of the structure. The report gives understanding of earth conditions affecting a building. They are required in areas

To Determine Moisture Content of Soil By Oven Drying Method

The water-content determination is a routine laboratory procedure. ASTM has designeated it with a Standard, ASTM D-2216-90 which can be found in “ASTM Standards vol. 4.08”, and also AASHTO T-265, found under “AASHTO Materials: Part II: Tests”. This is a laboratory procedure to determine the amount of water Ww present in a quantity of soil in terms of its

Sieve Analysis of Coarse Grained Soil

Arrange different types of sieves in order of there decreasing size of opening. Find the total weight of the given soil sample and pour it in the top sieve.
