Abstract

Seventeen percentages of Sumatra is covered with peat deposits. Some 1.6 million Ha is deposited in the East coast of South Sumatra. More over, 63.503 Ha is found in Ogan Ilir Regency. Laboratory soil tests are performed to determine the engineering properties of the peat. Generally the tests use undisturbed samples obtained with a block sampling from sites in Ogan Ilir Regency, but the physical tests for specific gravity, water content, and ignition loss occasionally employ disturbed samples. The tests for the determination of the engineering characteristics involve shear strength, consolidation, and permeability tests. The test results show that the peat soil in Ogan Ilir can be classified as fibrous peat. In general, the results show similar values with the reference data of other peat soils. Keywords: Keywords: fibrous peat, shear strength, consolidation, permeability
