Earth materials are extensively utilised for highway construction in Nigeria. It has been recognised that high quality lateritic soils which are abundant...

The West African Standard Compaction Test

The West African Standard (WAS) compaction test is a type of compaction procedure that utilises intermediate compaction energy (compactive effort) for densification...

Construction of Underground Water/Septic Tanks by Sinking

Underground water retaining structures have wide applications in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. According to Lagos State Development Laws (2005), a building...

3D Soil-Structure Interaction Analysis of Cantilever Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are structures used to retain earth fill, and have found wide applications in buildings and highway construction. Traditionally, cantilever retaining...

Structural Aspects of Pile Foundation Design: A Practical Example

Geotechnical engineers are expected to hand over soil investigation report to structural engineers, who will proceed to provide the longitudinal reinforcements needed for the...

Calculation of Collapse Settlement of Collapsible Soils

Civil engineers are always faced with one challenge or another on site, and one of the major challenges on site has to do with...

On Consolidation Settlement of Pile Groups

When a group of piles are founded on saturated clays, the pile group undergoes time dependent consolidation settlement. This can be calculated using the...
