Soil Properties and Their Correlations

Soil Properties and Their Correlations 

.Bentley, Stephen P

Preference :

The aims of this book are to provide a summary and discussion of commonly used soil engineering properties and to give correlations of various engineering properties.
The book includes:
• a compendium of published correlations;
• discussions of the reliability, accuracy, and usefulness of the various correlations;
• practical advice on how soil properties are used in the assessment and design of geotechnical problems, including basic concepts, and limitations on their use that need to be considered; and
• descriptions of the measurement of soil properties, and how results are affected by the method of measurement and the expertise of technicians carrying out the testing.




Content :
  • Commonly Measured Properties
  • Grading and Plasticity 
  • Density
  • Permeability
  • Consolidation and Settlement
  • Shear Strength
  • California Bearing Ratio
  • Shrinkage and Swelling Characteristics
  • Frost Susceptibility
  • Susceptibility to Combustion
  • Soil‐Structure Interfaces
  • Appendix A: Soil Classification Systems
  • Appendix B: Sampling Methods
