Abstract

The objective of the program is to design and build a system (Hardware and Software) to characterize physical soil properties including soil strength, moisture content, and classification to a depth of 36 inches. These measurements will be used for the following applications: 1) Selecting optimal locations for vehicle crossings over soil surfaced-terrain obstacles, 2) Prediction of soil deformation under vehicular traffic, 3) Site selection for contingency infrastructure facilities.
