Prediction of Geotechnical Properties by Using Electrical Resistivity

Author : Anju EM 1 2

Date of Publication :18th July 2019

Abstract: Electrical resistivity is a very effective tool for the determination of geotechnical properties of soil. Electrical resistivity of a given soil decreased with increase in water content. The increasing density leads to decrease in resistivity.The resostivity of the soil changes with the nature of the soil layer.This paper mainly focusing on the predication of water content and density from the determined resistivity value.We can represent the variation of electrical resistivity with water content and density by three dimensional representation using MATLAB.
