Abstract

This document contains the formatting information for the papers presented at the International conference on “Engineering Technology International Conference (ETIC 2015)”. The conference would be held at (Bali, Indonesia) during August 10-11, 2015. Dredging is a necessary procedure to remove large quantities of sediments from the seabed. It is therefore imperative to examine the possibility of reusing the material. Accordingly, it is important to determine the material’s inherent geo-characteristics as the first step in ascertaining its physical reusability. The paper describes the key geotechnical characteristics of 4 dredged marine soil samples retrieved from Malaysian waters. Overall, it was found that the dredged marine soils do not differ significantly from ordinary fine-grained soils, and could be reused as a sound geometrical with certain pre-treatment to improve the engineering properties accordingly.
