Geotechnical characterisation of fine-grained alluvial & proluvial soils for a motorway project in Kosovo

Published in the Proceedings of the XVII ECSMGE 2019 – download

Description and classification of fine-grained soils for large earthworks projects is extremely important to the success of the project, particularly for embankment construction. Establishing the correct profile of undrained shear strength and appropriate drained (effective stress) strength parameters is also critical in consideration of aspects of the project such as founding soils for embankments and stability analysis for deep cuttings. This paper discusses the investigation and characterisation of fine-grained alluvial and proluvial soils in the context of a large motorway scheme in Kosovo. The methodology of geological identification and geotechnical investigation of these soils is described and engineering parameters, including soil classifications, are presented.
