Abstract

The present study is an experimental investigation on the geotechnical properties of soil samples relevant to construction industry. The main point of view of the study is to understand the characteristics of soil samples before carrying out of any construction on it which is essential too. These papers summarize the characteristics of laterite and its suitability for the construction of high-rise buildings on it. For this the samples were collected from nine different places which are nearby to each other in the coastal belt of Dakshina Kannada district. To determine the geotechnical properties of soil, Geotechnical tests were performed that includes Natural Water Content Test, Specific Gravity Test, Sieve Analysis, Atterberg Limit, Standard and Modified Compaction Tests, Unconfined Compression Test (UCC) .On the other hand as the effective Risk Management is also an important task to be taken care, the formation of risk matrix is done and the ranges of risks were decided using a Five Point Likert scale. As the safe bearing capacity of soil (SBC) plays a vital role in construction phase, the risk matrix is formed by considering the SBC of soil
