GENERAL ENGINEERING APPROACH TO THE CLASSIFICATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF SOILS

THE GENERAL CLASSIFICATION OF SOILS IS OUTLINED ON THE CRITERIA OF MEASURABLE STRAINS OF ELASTIC, PLASTIC AND FLUID NATURE. THE RESULTS OF FORCES ACTING ON A SOIL ARE THE BASIS OF CLASSIFICATION, NOT WHAT CONSTITUENTS MAKE UP THE SOIL. THE COMPLETE SYSTEM WILL ALSO REQUIRE A STUDY OF EFFECTS OF FOREIGN INGREDIENTS, GIVING THE INFORMATION NECESSARY FOR ARTIFICIAL CONTROL OF SOILS AS WELL AS FOR THE DETERMINATION OF MAXIMUM DEVIATION IN STRAINS UNDER KNOWN FORCES. /AUTHOR/
