Different soil have different bearing capacity (strength to support load).
Different soil have different properties and characteristics.
Type of soil can be determined by conducting several test. email@example.com Slide 15: 100 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 10 100 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 100 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 loam clay

contain wide range in particle
uniform curve & lies across Poor grade soil
- mix of silt and gravel
- Particle size between 0.2 & 0.6 Very poor grade soil
- sand type
- Almost same type of particle firstname.lastname@example.org Soil characteristics : Soil characteristics Adhesive
consists of fine particles that
Wet : bond together.
Dry : become hard solid.
eg. Clay and silt.
consists of multiform particle that won’t bond if there are water exist.
eg. sand and gravel email@example.com Slide 23: firstname.lastname@example.org Soil characteristics : Soil characteristics Air content Moisture content Organic matter content Soil particle Pocket Large particle create large pocket and the particle become loose Water content High water content (moisture) of soil has low bearing capacity Organic matter decay easily.
The decay of organic matter creates air pocket and filled with air and water.
High organic matter of soil has low bearing capacity. email@example.com
