EVALUATION OF SOIL SUPPORT VALUE DATABASE. FINAL REPORT

This report summarizes a study conducted to 1) create a personal computer database for archived subgrade soil data accumulated by the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) since the early 1970s, and 2) statistically analyze database information for the purpose of developing mathematical models for the prediction of Soil Support Value (SSV) using gradation, Atterberg limits, and soil classification data. Using the SCDOT's archived data, two Borland dBASE for Windows table files were created to serve as the personal computer database. In addition, two "end user" database access applications were developed. Despite the large quantity of archived subgrade soil test data, the attempt to create reliable prediction SSV models was not successful.
