Abstract: The Indiana Geotechnical Data Bank was established to collect engineering soil data in the state and to provide information for engineering planning and design works. It contains nearly 10,000 sets of soil data. The soil data are grouped by using physiographical regions, engineering classifications, pedological soil classifications, or a combination of these. For the engineering soil analysis in this study, robust statistical methods are preferred to conventional parametric methods. 7 refs.
