Fernando Jove Wilches,


This data relates the properties of soils characteristic of a region in northern Colombia. A total of 46 representative samples were collected from different sites in the city of Sincelejo and analyzed in the laboratory, to determine their physical and mechanical properties.


Steps to reproduce

For soil characteristics research, samples were taken at different sites located in the research zone and field trials such as DCP were conducted. The samples were then taken to the laboratory and routine analyses were performed to determine some physical and mechanical properties, using standard soil laboratory methods. Soil particle size analysis, moisture content, Atterberg limits and CBR were tested. Finally, the information was processed and organized using the Microsoft Excel.
