permeability coefficient, void ratio, compressibility and fine sand.


This study develop model that will evaluates the influences of soil compression in natural condition or in an impose loads determined by the rate of soil porosity. Porosity evaluation in homogeneous fines sand formation were to monitor the homogeneous setting effect from the rate of low void ratio and permeability observed to pressure compression of fine sand, the expression has proven different dimensions that will always generate homogeneous setting in the deltaic formation, to predict this types of porosity, mathematical modelling approach were applied, the developed system generated governing equation that were derived to produced predictive model for porosity evaluation in fine sand formation. Soil and highway engineers can apply these techniques during design of roads and foundation as a parameter that is highly significant to check the rate of porosity on soil compression.
