Abstract

The objectives of this research were to carry out a laboratory testings on disturbed soil
sample of Perai alluvial soil. Laboratory studies were conducted to determine the soil
properties and the shear strength of the alluvial soil. The laboratory studies were divided
into two parts which were laboratory strength test and classification tests. The study
involved collection of samples from underneath the Penang Bridge. Based on the test,
the alluvial marine soil has been classified as either SILT of high plasticity or CLAY of
high plasticity. The shear strength parameters of the soil which is cohesion and friction
angle were 6.2 kPa and 20 degrees respectively.
