Abstract

This study has examined the feasibility of simple regression analysis (SRA), and multiple regression analysis (MRA) in correlating the mechanical properties of subgrade soil (foundation soil) with strength characteristic CBR. These correlations have been further used to find the effect of an individual soil property, and effect of a combination of soil properties on strength characteristic CBR. Moderate correlation (R = 0.68) was obtained by SRA, while MRA generated good correlation (R = 0.8). It was shown that the correlation of mechanical properties of subgrade soils such as Atterberg limits and compaction properties could be used for foundation characterization by estimating the characteristic strength CBR of foundation soils.
