The Engineering Properties Comparative Study of Wetlands Soft Soil and Soft Soil of other Genesis
In order to provide technical reference in soft soil foundation treatment for construction of high-grade highway in wetlands soft soil area,by collecting undisturbed soil samples in Qiqihaer-Fuyu section of Jiagedaqi-Beijing highway and using triaxial tests, direct shear test, compressed consolidation testing and other testing methods, a detailed laboratory test and study has been carried out on the soft soil engineering properties and the comparative study on physical and mechanical index, compressed consolidation properties, shearing strength and shearing strength index and so on of wetlands soft soil and other genesis soft soil has been carried out,the results showed that: wetlands soft soil is better than delta soft soil in basic physical and mechanical index; comparing shearing strength parameters of wetlands soft soil and lacustrine soft soil shows that: under smaller consolidation degree and the consolidation pressure, their cohesion decreased with the increase of consolidation degree;with the consolidation degree and the consolidation pressure become bigger, the cohesion of wetlands soft soil is higher than lacustrine soft soil, internal friction angle changed little; Comparing with marine soft soil, the primary consolidation coefficient of wetlands soft soil is bigger and the secondary consolidation coefficient is smaller, that shows the foundation of wetlands soft soil is easy to drainage and consolidation. The research results have guiding significances for treatment of wetland soft soil foundation.
