Title: EXPERIMENTAL EVALUATION OF SOIL RESISTIVITY IN LATERITIC SOIL OF WESTERN SUDAN
Author: Elarabi, Hussein; JABIR, ALI
Abstract: Soil resistivity is a measure of how much the soil resists the flow of electricity. The goal of this paper is to evaluate the potentiality of the lateritic soil in west Sudan.A total of six vertical electrical soundings (VES) locations were conducted. Thesoundings (VES) of the six locations along a proposed pipeline and facilitates area (blok17), Southern Kordufan State in West Sudan were evaluated. A big variation in the resistivity values along the line and at different depths was observed. The soil resistivity near the surfacewas found to be varies considerably at all six locations. The values obtained fromthree locations were significantly high comparing to the other three. This difference probably reflects differences in lithology, and water content in the upper soil layer due to local topography and drainage situation. The results obtained are acceptable compare to those found in literature
