Cohesion of backfill soil

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi all,
I am designing a foundation near to a water pond in a power plant. The pond depth is 4m, so the soil nearby have to be excavated, and then filled back after casting finish. My question is: which reduce factors should I used for that backfill soil cohesion factor and friction angle? Can you suggest some references related to this topic for me?
Your recommendation will be appreciated.
