Discussion on Application of Electrical Resistivity Method in Cemented Soil after Pollution
As a simplify and effective method , electrical resistivity has been used in geotechnical engineering. In lab the experiment simulated that cemented soil had been polluted by industrial sulphuric acid after mixing. On different age time, the variation trend among electrical resistivity of cemented soil and solution, formation factor and solution concentration were studied. The results indicated that both of electrical resistivity and formation factor have close correlations with sulphuric acid solution concentrations and pollution level of cemented soil. This shows that the electrical resistivity method are very sensitive for groundwater and cemented soil after pollution in the engineering site.
