Title of the thesis:Determination of Characteristic Values of Soil Properties
Summary:The goal of this thesis is to find the optimal solution to the problem of finding appropriate characteristic values of soil that are needed for proper design of foundations and other geotechnical constructions. Thesis will focus on comparison of getting the values according to Eurocode 7 and different statistical calculation methods of characteristic values used in practice (Schneider, Student, Ovesen), as well as comparison of results gained from calculation with measured values from tested soil and prescribed values from tables. The aim is to find the most appropriate way of finding characteristic values to get economical and save design of geotechnical constructions. Presented methods were used in the case study for calculation of characteristic values of subsoil under the bridge connecting shores of Dunaj river, which will be part of new speed road D4 around capital city Bratislava. Comparison was made for statistically calculated measured values of geotechnical parameters and values from prescribed tables for soil layers suitable for foundation placement and also on comparison of characteristic values of same categories of fine soils which are at different depths with different mechanical behavior (properties).
Key words:Characteristic value, soil properties, geotechnical design
