Development of Computer Program for Calculating Shear Parameters of Soil

Santosh G Gandevikar | Arjun M Butala


Abstract: In the current era of electronic data, analysis and storage each spectrum of manufacturing and service industries is migrating from manual system to electronic system. This electronic system uses a tool which is called software or program. In civil engineering also for various software are used for activities like analysis & design, drawings, estimates, project planning and final documentations. As some software available in market are of general in nature designed for all industries and for common utility functions, customized software for a particular problem or stream of knowledge is becomes very essential. In case of soil testing and reporting engineers prefer excel or its equivalent cell based calculation software or applications. The cell based calculations provide a wide range of mathematical functions, graph facilities etc. but many times lacks in clear output, systematic data storage and retrieval, on account of generic nature of the software. An application or customized program devised as per need of the testing procedure which can be used for calculations, deriving correct and non-ambiguous results and data storage provides efficiency in testing activities. The content in this paper is an effort to develop a program for testing calculations and drawings graphs as per Indian standard code of practice for soil tests. This paper covers programing for working out shear parameters of soil by (i) Direct Shear Test and (ii) Triaxial Shear Test.
