Question 1

Soil having volume of 1m3 and void ratio of 0.8 is compacted in lab such that the final void ratio is 0.4. Calculate the final volume after compaction.

Question 2

A concentrated load of 50 kN acts vertically at a point on the soil surface. If Boussinesq’s equation is applied for computation of stress, then the ratio of vertical stresses at depths of 3 m and 5 m respectively vertically below the point of application of load is

Question 3

In case of stratified soil layers, the best equation that can be adopted for computing the pressure distribution is

Question 4

Considering the compaction curve, the soil in the wet of optimum zone has:

Question 5

In a Newmark’s chart for stress distribution, there are 5 concentric circles and 20 radial lines. The influence factor for this chart would be

Question 6

Boussinesque’s Solution for the stresses in soil caused by a point load at the surface is based on some assumptions. One of which is

Question 7

The maximum dry density in a fine-grained soil can be achieved with specified compaction at:

Question 8

The intensity of vertical stress at depth z below a concentrated load Q, by Boussinesq equation is:

Question 9

In a typical compaction curve as indicated in the diagram , points ‘A’ and ‘B’ have dry densities choose the most appropriate statement from the following
