Undisturbed soil samples

Undisturbed soil samples are those in which the in-situ soil structure and moisture content are preserved.

• They are representative and also intact

• These are used for consolidation, permeability or shear strengths test (Engineering properties)

• More complex jobs or where clay exist

• In sand is very difficult to obtain undisturbed sample

• Obtained by using Shelby tube (thin wall), piston sampler, etc.,
