Abstract

This research aims to investigate the effect of temperature changes on the compression index and collapse potential of the residual granitic soil that is widely encountered in Malaysia. An experimental study was conducted on the compacted soil using a modified temperature-controlled oedometer. Temperatures of 27, 40, and 60 ºC were applied on two series of soil specimens with different values of dry density. Experimental results showed that the value of compression index is independent of temperature. On the other hand, heating caused a reduction in collapse potential, which was more pronounced at low dry density.

Keywords
