Abstract

Wave propagation techniques have been extensively used for many years in geotechnical engineering. Since these techniques are nondestructive and easy to apply, they have been used increasingly for determination of dynamic properties of rocks and soils. In this study, a seismic refraction survey line was conducted across two boreholes, and the Atterberg limits were calculated using laboratory test, and equation related between Atterberg limits and Vp which identify from seismic refraction method. Experimental results showed that the Liquid limit have a good correlation while Plastic limit and Plasticity index show moderate and poor correlation, respectively. Finally, the seismic refraction method can be used for Liquid limit and Plastic limit calculation.
