Question 1

The vertical stress at point P1 due to the point load Q on the ground surface as shown in figure is . According to Boussinesq’s equation, the vertical stress at point P2 shown in figure will be Question 2

The contact pressure for a rigid footing resting on clay at the center and the edges are respectively

Question 3

In case of governing equations for calculating wheel load stresses using Westergaard’s approach, the following statements are made.

Question 4

Standard Newmark's influence chart is shown in the given figure. If loaded equally, the area marked 1, 2 and 3 will yield pressure at the centre such that Question 5

A fotting 2 m × 1 m exerts a uniform pressure of 150 kN/m2 on the soil. Assuming a load dispersion of 2 vertical to 1 horizontal, the average vertical stress (kN/m2) at 1.0 m below the fotting is

Question 6

A 25 kN point load acts on the surface of an infinite elastic medium. The vertical pressure intensity in kN/m2 at a point 6.0 m below and 4.0 m away from the load will be
