Abstract

Geotechnical properties should be precisely identified as it is essential for a successful construction of a structure. Bore hole sampling is known as a conventional method of soil investigation and contributes to reliable determination of soil strength parameters but this method is costly, time consuming and causes soil disturbance. Geophysical methods such as electrical resistivity, is proven to be more efficient because of the non-invasive, non-destructive, rapid and cost-effective aspect. This paper presents the effects of porosity and saturation on electrical resistivity for different particle size proportion. In addition, the behaviour of electrical resistivity with soil strength parameters by varying the particle size proportion for mixed sand and silt samples is also presented. The research involves laboratory test on the mixture of sand and silt with different particle size proportion of; (1) 100% sand, (2) 80% sand, 20% silt, (3) 60% sand, 40% silt, (4) 40% sand, 60% silt, (5) 20% sand, 80% silt, and (6) 100% silt under different moisture content ranging from 15% to 35%.
