Effect of Diesel Spill from the Boat on the Geotechnical Properties of Cohesive Soil: An Overview
Biby Mary Benny
Abstract: Soil pollution by diesel is a serious geo - environmental problem that adversely affects the quality of soil, groundwater and atmosphere. Soil infection by means of diesel not most effective influences the surroundings but additionally has negative influences at the safety of civil engineering structures. Diesel contamination reduces the permeability, strength and Atterberg limits by increasing oil contamination. Clay particles are soil particles that are chemically active. Their behavior is always affected by the environment to variable degree depending on the clay particles mineralogy. The goal of this study is to examine impact of diesel that's spilled from boats to the soil with the impact of infection duration on geotechnical properties on cohesive soil.
Keywords: Diesel oil, contamination, cohesive soil
