Abstract: In order to improve the engineering stability of saline soil of high chloride content in the Chaerhan salt lake region, six typical characteristics saline soil samples were selected, and tests on their primary physical properties (total salt content, specific gravity of soil, liquid limit, plastic limit, maximum dry density, and optimal water content) were conducted. The relationships among them were analyzed, a series of variation laws between salt content and these basic physical parameters were determined, and regression equations were derived. This research can improve future engineering design and construction in saline soils and can also help prevent subgrade filler from undermining subgrade stability and producing disease.
