Index Properties Of Laterite Soils Obtained At Different Locations Within Aliero: A Case Study Of Aliero Town, North West Region Of Nigeria


Objectives of the Study


  1. To determine the particle size distribution of laterite soils from various locations in Aliero Town.

  2. To assess the Atterberg limits (liquid limit, plastic limit, and plasticity index) of the laterite soils in the study area.

  3. To measure the specific gravity of laterite soils from different sites within Aliero Town.

  4. To evaluate the compaction characteristics (maximum dry density and optimum moisture content) of the laterite soils.
