Geotechnical Characterization of Jordanian Limestone

Full knowledge of the physical and mechanical behavior of limestone rocks is required for the safe design of structures. Little work has been done to characterize the physical and mechanical properties of Jordanian limestone especially under watery environment. Therefore, in this study the physical and mechanical properties of some Jordanian limestone were investigated.

GEOTECHNICAL AND INDEX PROPERTIES: LABORATORY

2020-8-6  Exposed limestone, sandstone, and shale are typical of indurated transported soil deposits of earlier geological eras that have been uplifted to undergo current weathering and decomposition back to soil to repeat the geological cycle. Residual soils are usually preferred to support foundations as they tend to have better en-gineering properties.
