    Abstract

    This paper shows the criteria of obtaining soil particle size distributions using electrical signal propagation in geotechnical investigations. Soil type identification is the most important requirements in structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, and other division of civil engineering. Generally, soil type is determined through the measurement of particle distribution of soil using sieve tests in geotechnical laboratory. Determination of soil particle size in conventional laboratory tests with sieve analysis is very tedious, slower and costly for the laboratory testing including dry sample collections. In this work, a method and criteria of soil particle size determinations with electrical resistivity is revealed to define different types of soil in the soil site investigations of geotechnical engineering. The performance of the proposed technique is verified with laboratory testing data in soil particle size investigations. The research is most significant as simpler, cost-effective testing in soil particle size identification through electrical signal for a wide range of applications in geotechnical engineering.
