<p>The agricultural potential of Latosols of the Brazilian Cerrado region is high, but when intensively cultivated under inappropriate management systems, the porosity can be seriously reduced, leading to rapid soil degradation. Consequently, accelerated erosion ...

This paper presents the influence of lime, in the range of 0–13%, on the compaction behaviour of soils with wide range of plasticity characteristics (i.e. liquid limit varying from 45% to 460% and plastic limit 26% to 53.7%). The test results indicate that ...

<p>A series of four dynamic centrifuge model tests was performed to investigate the effect of foundation densification on the seismic performance of a zoned earth dam with a saturated sand foundation. In these experiments, thickness of the densified foundation ...

The most useful tool for deciding which soils can be dentified by dynamic methods is the cone penetration test. Based on the CPT data, variation of the coefficient of earth pressure in normally consolidated and overconsolidated soil and effect of soil compaction ...

<p>Unanticipated settlement of compacted earth fill has been a continuing problem for embankments managed by the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT). This report contains the results of an investigation of current compaction specifications, with particular ...

<p>Soil compaction is defined as the method of mechanically increasing the density of soil. In construction, this is a significant part of the building process. If performed improperly, settlement of the soil could occur and result in unnecessary maintenance ...
