Effects of Fines on Shear Parameter of Sandy Soil

Authors(5) :-Shivani K Kharva, Bhumika B Patel, Alpana A Vasava, Minal B Vasava, Yogin Gajjar

The occurrence and distribution of soil in nature is such that the various types of soil can be found together. The presence of fines in sand is generally recognized as problem in geotechnical engineering, because it influences the engineering properties of soil such as Strength, Relative Density and Classification of Soil. It was established that, the soils cohesion increase with increasing silt content, the angle of internal friction decreased with increasing silt content at the same moisture content.
