Analyses of Some Engineering Properties of Ado-Ekiti to Ilawe-Ekiti Road Soil, Southwestern Nigeria IJTSRD


This study sought to analyze the Engineering properties of Ado-Ekiti to Ilawe-Ekiti road soil. Soil samples were taken from three locations within the study area to laboratory for Atterberg Limits, Particle Size Distribution and Permeability tests. Results showed that the Liquid Limit (LL), Plasticity Index (PI), Shrinkage Limit (SL) and Permeability values varied from 28.48 to 32.50%, 12.03 to 23.60%, 0.6 to 0.72% and 5.14 x 10-5 ¬to 1.08 x 10-3 mms respectively for all the soil samples. Their clay or silt, sand and gravel also ranged from 15.3 to 34.1%, 48.1 ““ 77.2% and 3.8 ““ 13.6% respectively. The soil samples were generally and grouply classified as granular and A – 2 – 6 materials with mainly silty or clayey gravel and sand constituent materials. All the soil samples were good as subgrade, subbase and base materials. However, they have low permeability, which showed the reason for road failure in their locations. It is recommended that further study should be carried out.
