granular soil

granular soil

Soil comprised of sediments or other unconsolidated accumulations of particles (such as gravel, sand, or silt) having no clay content; crumbles easily when dry.

With increasing axial strain, coarse granular soil I shows slight softening and significant volume dilation, whereas coarse granular soil II shows continuous hardening and slight volume dilation.
The research carried out so far focused on increasing the shear strength capacity of the soil using geogrid and also none of these studies demonstrated the influence of geogrid sheets in improving liquefaction resistance of granular soil. In addition, studies that are related to large scale field test on bearing capacity of geogrid reinforced soil are very limited.
Although compaction and consolidation methods work very well for granular soil, it takes a long time for the soil to consolidate (months to years) especially with the cohesive soil [9].

The versatile P33-HHMR-BD has dual compaction settings that allow the operator to easily change amplitude, frequency and compaction force making the roller effective in more granular soil applications.

Also, it was suggested that the centrifuge modeling is an appropriate and powerful tool for investigating the penetration of projectile into granular soil [5].
In recent years, subgrades of roadways are generally constructed by replacing the underneath organic soil with granular soil named "cut and replace" or preloading to improve the engineering properties of soil, which requires a huge investment cost and effort.
The direct shear test is a common approach to find the shear strength of granular soil mostly and less frequently the soil having a fraction of cohesive soil (Kutara and Ishizuka, 1982; Orense et al., 2004; and Ahmed et al., 2012).
4 shows that the reflectance in the 750 to 1000 nm band of the cloddy soil was 5% to 10% higher than that of the granular soil under the same conditions (p < 0.05).
