Investigation of Changes in Group Index (GI) of AashtoClassificationused in Road Constraction
The soil classification methods used to identify the soil are an important criterionforpredicting the physical
behavior of the soils. The AASHTO classification system, widely used in road construction, divides the ground into seven
main groups. The AASHTO classificationsystem, thegrain size distribution, and the Atterberg limits are derived from
experiments, a system in which the soil group is identified from left to right. Groupindex (GI) value is a para metric value
that determines the suit ability of siltyorclay-sanded ground materials for use as road infrastructure fill material. In this study,
the variation of the group index value was investigated as the percentage of material passing under the number 200 mesh
