Unformatted text preview: 5. Develop a table that summaries each soil formation method and its unique characteristics i.e. particle shape, grain size distribution, etc and engineering properties. 6. What soil would provide better engineering properties to support a building foundation: 1) alluvial sand or 2) Lacustrine clay? Justify your answer. 7. What are cohesive and cohesionless soils? 8. Using the attached borehole record write a short description as to how the soils might have formed at the site. Since soils are deposited you should start at the bottom and work upwards....
