Abstract: This paper presents the table of recommended design parameters for soil, shows their physical significance, and compares the resulting stiffness and strength for the variety of soil and compaction levels tested. These results are useful for estimating soil properties and for judging the benefits of compaction, as well as for use in finite element analysis.
