GEOTECHNICAL CORRELATION AND CLASSIFICATION OF SOILS

CORRELATIONS ET CLASSIFICATION GEOTECHNIQUE DES SOLS

THIS RESEARCH REGROUPS STUDIES OF THE STATISTICAL PROPERTIES OF SOILS, ESPECIALLY THE CORRELATIONS BETWEEN THEIR PHYSICAL AND MECHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS, WITH A VIEW TO IMPROVING THE DESCRIPTION OF NATURAL SOILS FOR STRUCTURAL DESIGN. IN 1979, A BIBLIOGRAPHIC STUDY WILL BE STARTED OF STATISTICAL LAWS APPLICABLE TO SOILS, AND SOME NATURAL SITES WILL BE EXAMINED. AN INVESTIGATION WILL BE MADE INTO CORRELATIONS BETWEEN RESULTS OF LOGGING MEASUREMENTS AND THE MECHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF SOME SOILS.
