ABSTRACT

This research project investigates the geotechnical characteristics of soils in Federal University Oye Ekiti, lkole campus. In this research project, disturbed soil samples were obtained from five labelled TP 1, TP 2, TP 3, TP 4, TP 5 at different locations and at various intervals along the university and were taken to laboratory for relevant soil engineering tests. The relevant soil tests include; particle size analysis, consistency limits (liquid, plastic, and shrinkage limits), natural moisture contents, specific gravity, compaction test, direct shear test, CBR test. There were provisions for spacing sampling to obtain variation of soil properties. Compaction test showed a maximum dry density range of 1.55kg/m 3 to 1.75kg/m 3 and an optimum moisture content range between 17% and 22.5%. The values of the California Bearing Ratio (CBR) of un-soaked soil samples were within the range of 15.5% and 81.7%. Furthermore, the sieve analysis revealed that a substantial percentage of the soil samples passed through the No. 200 BS sieve suggesting the soil consist mostly of silty clayey material, which translates to a fair material rating according to AASHTO design standard (1986) and may require stabilization before a construction is commenced in such areas

    ABSTRACT The amount of soil organic carbon (SOC) stored in a particular soil is influenced by several factors including climate, vegetation type and age, land management, soil properties and current and past land use. The impacts of land use types on soil organic carbon were assessed. Four land use types were used in the study. Sampled soils were... Continue Reading
    ABSTRACT This project was undertaken to determine the geotechnical properties of soils along Appleton/Zoo road. A total of nine (9) samples, both disturbed and undisturbed, were collected at chainages - 0+275, 0+325 and 0+525 respectively and each drilled to a depth of 1 m and at sampling depths of 0–0.3 m, 0.3–0.6 m and 0.6–1.0 m...

    ABSTRACT Water is an important resource for almost all human activities like agriculture, industry, transportation, domestic uses and the proper functioning of the human body, The study examined the physiochemical properties and potentially toxic metals in hand-dug wells and boreholes in Ikole Ekiti and its Environs. Six functional hand-dug wells... Continue Reading
    Abstract Anthropogenic activities can destroy or drastically reduce the organic carbon contents of soils. This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of two land use management practices (arable land and oil palm land), soil depth and topography on soil organic carbon contents. The study was carried out in Ikole-Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria.... Continue Reading
    ABSTRACT Reduction of protein malnutrition in many areas requires evaluation of simple, affordable, cheap but effective processing and preservation methods that ensure protein requirements are met. There is increase in the consumption of meat in the modern world. There is need to process raw meat to other forms to serve as alternatives to the... Continue Reading
