CE1307 Soil Engineering Laboratory Syllabus

CE1307 SOIL ENGINEERING LABORATORY 0 0 3 100


OBJECTIVE
At the end of this course, the student acquires the capacity to test the soil to assess its Engineering and Index properties.

1. Grain size distribution - Sieve analysis
2. Grain size distribution - Hydrometer analysis
3. Specific gravity of soil grains
4. Relative density of sands
5. Atterberg limits test
6. Determination of moisture - Density relationship using standard Proctor test.
7. Permeability determination (constant head and falling head methods)
8. Determination of shear strength parameters.
Direct shear test on cohesionless soil
Unconfined compression test on cohesive soil
Triaxial compression test
9. One dimensional consolidation test (Determination of co-efficient of consolidation only)
10. Field density test (Core cutter and sand replacement methods)

TOTAL : 45
