Abstract

Studies on spatial variability of soil engineering properties are limited in the south east Asia. This study examines the spatial variability of soil shear strength properties in a flat region under subtropical climate using geostatistical and statistical methods. This proposed study will allow understanding and characterization of small scale spatial variability nature of soil shear strength characteristics of tropical soil in University Technology of PETRONAS (UTP) campus area. The campus is built on a 400 hectare (1,000 acres) site. This campus is used as the experimental subject of the spatial variability of soil shear strength characteristic. Global Positioning System ( GPS ) was used for locating the samples position. This project was been towards the laboratory soil shear strength test from the samples that was taken at 50 different locations inside UTP campus. The data has been analysed statistically and geostatistically using special computer software. The study indicated geostatistical analysis in conjunction with conventional statistical analysis could reveal spatial variability nature of soil shear strength properties and causes behind the variability. Of significant importance to land management practices is the finding that the variability of the soil shear strength are largely due to topographic features and land disturbances. This will also allow identifying the effects of land disturbances and catchments characteristics inside the campus area of significant importance to land management practices.
