ADVANCED SOIL MECHANICS LABORATORY - I

 LPTC

3003

OBJECTIVES:
• At the end of the course student attains adequate knowledge in assessing index properties, compaction, CBR, Compressibility, Swell characteristics and permeability of soils by conducting laboratory tests.

LIST OF EXPERIMENTS:

UNIT I

INDEX TESTS

12

Specific gravity of soil solids-Grain size distribution (Sieve analysis and Hydrometer analysis) - Liquid limit and Plastic limit tests - Shrinkage limit and Differential free swell tests

UNIT II

CHEMICAL TESTS

12

Chemical analysis – pH – Conductivity – quantification of CEC through flame Photometer – Determination of organic, sulphate and chlorite content.


UNIT III

COMPACTION AND CBR TESTS

12

Field density Test - Compaction tests - Determination of moisture – density relationship – Influence of compaction energy – CBR Test.

UNIT IV

CONSOLIDATION AND PERMEABILITY TESTS

12

One dimensional consolidation test, determination of consolidation parameters, permeability of soil – constant and falling head methods.

UNIT V

SWELL TESTS

12

Determination of percent swell – swell pressure, constant volume method; Expanding volume method – double odometer test.

TOTAL : 60 PERIODS

OUTCOMES: On completion of the course, the student is expected to be able to
CO1 Classify soils based on assessing the index properties of soils
CO2 Evaluate the chemical properties of soils
CO3 Evaluate the compaction characteristics and CBR of soils
CO4 Evaluate the engineering properties of soils by conducting appropriate tests
CO5 Determine the swelling characteristics of soils by conducting appropriate tests.
