Abstract

In general, soil investigation (SI) incorporating bore hole sampling perhaps produces the most reliable value of relevant soil parameters for the purpose of actual calculation on factor of safety in slopes. However, bore hole sampling is in general time consuming and very expensive. The long term objective of this whole research is to implement a quick method of assessing the factor of safety (FOS) in slopes by replacing the conventional soil parameters such as cohesion and internal angle of friction with electrical parameters such as resistivity. This paper however is limited to the investigation of correlation between electrical resistivity with some soil properties. Field electrical resistivity surveys using basic multimeter were conducted on a slope in UTP and the result obtained were compared and correlated with some soil properties obtained from sand box test done in the geotechnical laboratory. Result from the experiment of electrical resistivity with different parameters indicated that soil resistivity reduced as the temperature increase, soil resistivity increased as the percentage of organic carbon increased and soil resistivity increased as the mineralogy density increased.
