|About the Book|
Correlations of Soil Properties provides guidance for civil engineers faced with the problem of having to estimate soil behaviour from little or no laboratory test data. It presents typical values of engineering properties for various types or classes of soil, together with correlations between different properties. Particular emphasis is given to correlations with soil classification tests and to the use of classification systems. Included in the correlations are properties that are difficult to measure directly, such as frost susceptibility and swelling potential. In addition, explanations are given of the engineering relevance of the various properties and the justification of the correlations between properties is discussed.
