Abstract: Standard triaxial compression tests were carried out on an agricultural sandy loam soil to assess the effect of soil dry bulk density and moisture content on soil mechanical properties, namely, cohesion, internal friction angle, Young's modulus of elasticity and Poisson's ratio. Regression analyses were performed to establish mathematical relationships for simulating the variation in these mechanical properties as a function of dry bulk density and moisture content. These relationships were developed for six typical field moisture contents ranging from 3 to 22% d.b., and various dry bulk density levels ranging from 1.15 to 1.82 Mg m(-3).
