I would like to take this opportunity to express my profound gratitude and deep regard to my research supervisor, Dr U.P Nawagamuwa, for his exemplary guidance, valuable feedback and constant encouragement throughout the duration of the project. His valuable suggestions were of immense help throughout my project work. His perceptive criticism kept me working to make this project in a much better way. Working under him was an extremely knowledgeable experience for me.
I would also like to give my sincere gratitude to all my colleagues and friends who spent their time to help me in the experiments.
I wish to express my sincere thanks to all nonacademic staff of Soil mechanics laboratory, Department of Civil Engineering for providing all means of support while conducting experiments.
