Question 3

The water level in a lake is 5 m above the bed. The saturated unit weight of the lake bed soil is 20 KN/m3. The unit weight of water is 10 KN/m3. The effective vertical stress at 5m depth below the lake bed is:

Question 4

In a typical deposit of submerged soil, the approximate depth at which the inter-granular pressure is equal to 50 KN/m2 is (γsat = 20 KN/m3)

Question 5

If fineness modulus of a sand is 2.7, it is regarded as,

Question 6

Given for a soil stratum:

Coefficient of permeability in vertical direction = 1/3 m/day

The effective permeability of the stratum is

Question 7

In a falling head permeability test, the time taken for head to fall from 27 cm to 3 cm is 10 minutes, if the test is repeated with the same initial head i.e. 27 cm then what time would it take for head to fall to 9 cm?

Question 8

In a Soil deposit of three layers of equal thickness, the permeabilities of first, second and third layers are in the ratio 1:2:3 . The ratio of average permeability in horizontal direction (Kh) to that in the vertical direction (Kv) will be:
