- Abstract (in about 300 words)
In this research study ,the Exploration of the behaviour of the soil at the site has been done using field and laboratory tests in order to estimate void ratio ,specific gravity ,liquid limit and other Index properties .From given data of loads acting from the Pier and Deck of the rail over bridge acting on the foundation ,the number of Under reamed piles required for the construction has been carried out. Under reamed types of piles are specially used in the soils where noise and vibrations due to piles have to be avoided or the strata of adequate bearing capacity is at great depth which makes uneconomical to use driven piles. The standard penetration test has been done in order to estimate the Insitu properties and density index of the soil . The classification of soil at each depth has been done and various corrections has been applied from the ‘N’ values calculated at each depth. In order to determine the cohesion and angle of internal friction ,the Triaxial test has been performed for each depth of soil and Mohr’s circle has been plotted as show in figures.
