<p>Spread footings are often supported in the upper zone of the soil profile, which is frequently unsaturated. It is common in geotechnical practice to use in situ testing to assess soil properties throughout the zone of influence for footings. These tests regularly include the Standard Penetration Test (SPT), and sometimes the Cone Penetration Test (CPT),...

<p>Different fluids can permeate the soil collapsing at various levels of severity depending on their physicochemical characteristics. This work evaluated the effect of pH and electrical conductivity (ECf) of different soaking fluids on the collapsible behavior of a lateritic silty clay. Double and single oedometer tests were performed using four chemicall...
