SVSoils

 

 

SVSOILS is a software database system that provides the user with an existing dataset of detailed information on over 6000 soils. Whether you are looking for an estimate of soil dry density, the compression index, the compaction characteristics or the soil-water characteristic curve, SVSOILS can provide complex searching capabilities of the included dataset.

 

Since much of the data included in SVSOILS are from research publications, the reference to the original journal paper where the data was published. The reference allows for the search of soil data by author, journal, or year of publication.

 

The following table summarizes the dataset which have been imported into the SVSOILS database.

The SVSOILS application allows the user to search the database of over 6000 soil-water characteristic curves, 2500 saturated coefficients of permeability, 600 permeability curves, 100 compression curves, 50 shrinkage curves, 30 compaction curves, 25 unsaturated direct shear tests, etc. for approximate parameters. All soils contained in the database have been automatically classified by the USDA and USCS (ASTM) systems to ensure proper grouping.
