Abstract:

An engineering soils investigation of the area in which test structures were located was conducted to determine the physical characteristics and properties of the foundation soil. A soil-boring program was undertaken for the purpose of securing samples for laboratory examination and analysis. Mechanical analysis or grain-size distribution, specific-gravity determinations, direct shear and triaxial compression tests and moisture-density relationships were made on the resulting disturbed and remolded samples.
