GEOTECHNICAL PROPERTIES OF SOME LATERITIC SOILS IN OSUN STATE

ABSTRACT  

This project work examines the geotechnical properties of lateritic soil in three located areas in which the two samples were taken from each location, namely Ikirun to osogbo Road, Ikirun to Ada Road, and Ikirun to Iree Road. Lateritic soils were taken from each of the locations for the test. Tests were performed on that lateritic soils to determine their suitability for use in road construction. The tests performed on the soils were moisture content determination, liquid limit test, plastic limit test, shrinkage limit test, compaction test, C.B.R test, sieve analysis test. All the laboratory tests were carried out in accordance with the requirement of the relevant British standard specification and American society for Highway testing materials after which a conclusion was drawn. The lateritic soils from these three sample locations were very good materials for pavement structure construction after compacting the laboratory results with the standard requirement of different pavement structures.
