In this study, allowable bearing capacity values using different equations generally accepted in the literature for shape, depth and N factors in the general bearing capacity equation used in bearing capacity calculation of shallow foundations were calculated for different soil conditions varying from c=20 kPa to 200 kPa and from =0° to 40° and t...
Article
In this study, detailed experiments were carried out to clarify some physical properties and behavior of paraffin that may affect the shrinkage limit of soils. Then the shrinkage limit values of 22 different natural soil samples were determined by both conventional mercury displacement and water displacement, and water submersion methods. Shrinkage...

In the present study, an attempt was made to establish a relationship between geogrid aperture size and aggregate particle size required for a good interlocking between them. A simple and predictive test called “aggregate column test” was performed for this aim. In this test, an aggregate column with a dimension of 40 × 40 × 60 cm (width × length ×...
Article
The liquid limit is one of the most commonly used index properties of soils. The study compares liquid limit values determined by the hard base and soft base Casagrande apparatus and the cone penetrometer, based on 42 natural soil samples with liquid limits varying between 30 and 105%. The results indicated that the liquid limits obtained by the so...

In this study, the effect of sample preparation method on the liquid limit and plastic limit values was examined. For this purpose, the liquid limit and plastic limit values of the samples, which have been determined by dry preparation method defined in ASTM D 4318-00 (standard method) and the method followed by some laboratories in Turkey (non-sta...

Article
Laser diffraction method commonly used in many engineering and industrial fields such as ceramic, sand, clay, cement, abrasion, powder metallurgy, food, pharmacology, cosmetics, paint, and sedimentology has been used in geotechnical engineering field in recent years as an alternative of the hydrometer/pipette method. In this study, clay content of...
