SOIL AS AN ENGINEERING CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL /IN JAPANESE/

BECAUSE OF THE GREAT DISTANCES AND VARIED CLIMATIC CONDITIONS, MANY SOIL TYPES OCCUR IN AUSTRALIA, AND THEIR PROPER USAGE AS CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS REQUIRES A KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO DEAL WITH SOIL VARIABILITY. TERRAIN EVALUATION AND SOIL RECOGNITION METHODS HAVE BEEN HIGHLY DEVELOPED FOR THESE PURPOSES, AS WELL AS THE VARIOUS METHODS OF SOIL STABILIZATION. RECENTLY, NEW METHODS OF STATICAL ANALYSIS (BAYESIAN PROBABILITY) HAVE BEEN STUDIED AS A MEANS OF IMPROVING CONSTRUCTION CONTROL AND ASSISTING RECOGNITION OF THE CRITICAL FACTORS INVOLVED IN ANY PARTICULAR SOIL CONSTRUCTION WORK. NEWLY DEVELOPED TECHNIQUES FOR THE TESTING AND EVALUATION OF SOIL AND STABILIZED SOIL FOR USE AS PAVEMENT MATERIAL, AND IN EARTHEN EMBANKMENT CONSTRUCTION, ARE DESCRIBED WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO CURRENT AUSTRALIAN RESEARCH, BOTH IN THE LABORATORY AND AS CONTROLLED LONG-TERM FIELD TRIALS. THE RESULTS OF THIS EXPERIENCE ARE NOW BEING INCORPORATED IN PRACTICAL CONSTRUCTION MANUALS. /CSIRO/
