  • 1. THE COMPRESSIBILITY PROPERTIES OF SOIL

    » CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION Maryland is located in Enugu South in Enugu State. The subsoil of this region consists of fine grained soils with a considerable part of soft soil deposit which extends to a considerable depth.        When a compressive load is applied to a soil mass, the volume of the soil mass tends to reduce, due to reduction in its voids. This reduction in volume of a soil mass o...Continue Reading »
