MODELLING AND PREDICTION OF COMPACTION PARAMETERS BASED ON ATTERBERG LIMITS AND CLAY CONTENT
Publication Date : 01/08/2014
This study focused on using a modeling technique to determine the soil compaction parameters from Atterberg limits and clay content. Soil samples were collected from various locations in Kano-Nigeria and their compaction and other properties determined. Statistical techniques were employed to relate these properties. The results of the study show that the soils maximum dry density (MDD) and their optimum moisture content (OMC) can be estimated from the soils Atterberg limits and the fine particle contents. The current study has shown an improvement over other existing models by given a better correlation among the parameters modeled.
