Test Preparation on Civil Soil Mechanics and Foundation Part-3

1.

The critical exist gradient of seepage water in soils, is

2.

In the triaxial compression test, the application of additional axial stress (i.e. deviator stress) onthe soil specimen produces shear stress on

3.

For a clay slope of height of 10 m, the stability number is 0.05, = 2.0 t/m3, C = 2.5 t/m2, thecritical height of the slope of the soil, is

4.

Allowable bearing pressure for a foundation depends upon

5.

Pick up the correct statement from the following:

6.

Voids ratio of a soil mass can

7.

If the cohesive force (c), is 1.5 t/m2, the density ) of the soil is 2.0 t/m3, factor of safety (F) is 1.5and stability factor (Sn) is 0.05, the safe height of a slope, is

8.

If the plasticity index of a soil mass is zero, the soil is
