Question 1

Which one of the following test on a saturated clay soil gives the unique effective stress Mohr circle?

Question 2

Given that the effective angle of internal friction of the soil is 100, the angle between the failure plane and the major principle plane will be:

Question 3

The angle of repose of a soil is the maximum angle which the outer face of the soil mass makes

Question 4

In a drained triaxial test, a saturated specimen of cohesionless sand fails under a deviator stress of 5.35 kg/cm2 when the cell pressure is 1.5 kg/cm2. The inclination of the failure plane to the horizontal is
