Engineering Properties

 

i)Permeability

 

ii)Compressibility

 

iii)Shear strength

 

1 Permeability

 

It indicates the facility with which water can flow through soils. It is re quired for estimation of seepage discharge throug h earth masses.

2 Compressibility

 

It is related with the deformations produced in soils when they are subjected to compressive load.

 

3 Shear Strength

 

It determines the stability of slope bearing capacity of soils and the earth pressure on retaining structures.
