Soil is an universally available natural material derived mostly from rocks and rocky minerals. A comprehensive knowledge of the soil in a specific location is very essential for geotechnical engineer to design and construct safe structures on any type of soils. One would normally accept the engineering behavior of a soil mass to be greatly influenced by the mineral composition of the soil grains forming the soil mass. In case of coarse grained soils; the mineral composition of the grains hardly affects engineering properties of soil. The presence of water, which is relatively unimportant in coarse-grained soils, plays a decisive role in the engineering behavior of clayey soil. So it is very essential to study and get aware of geotechnical properties of soil and civil engineer must be ready to plan for construction on such worst sites. In the present paper the geotechnical investigation and evaluation of bearing capacity of clayey soil situated on the bank of Kham river for the proposed construction of "Cantonment Fund Servant's Quarters for Cantonment Board Office Employees at Aurangabad" is carried out. Based on the study and judicious judgment the depth of foundation is decided. Similarly comparative study to decide suitable type of foundation is carried out.

Abstract


Soil is an universally available natural material derived mostly from rocks and rocky minerals. A comprehensive knowledge of the soil in a specific location is very essential for geotechnical engineer to design and construct safe structures on any type of soils. One would normally accept the engineering behavior of a soil mass to be greatly influenced by the mineral composition of the soil grains forming the soil mass. In case of coarse grained soils; the mineral composition of the grains hardly affects engineering properties of soil. The presence of water, which is relatively unimportant in coarse-grained soils, plays a decisive role in the engineering behavior of clayey soil. So it is very essential to study and get aware of geotechnical properties of soil and civil engineer must be ready to plan for construction on such worst sites. In the present paper the geotechnical investigation and evaluation of bearing capacity of clayey soil situated on the bank of Kham river for the proposed construction of "Cantonment Fund Servant's Quarters for Cantonment Board Office Employees at Aurangabad" is carried out. Based on the study and judicious judgment the depth of foundation is decided. Similarly comparative study to decide suitable type of foundation is carried out.
