(a) 25
(b) 50
(c) 75
(d) 90

Q3. Relationship between dry density γ_d’ percentage air voids n_a’ water content w and specific gravity G of any soil is
(a) γ_d=((1+b_a )Gγ_w)/(1+wG)
(b) γ_d=((1+n_a )Gγ_w)/(1-wG)
(c) γ_d=((1-n_a )Gγ_w)/(1+wG)
(d) γ_d=((1-n_a )Gγ_w)/(1-wG)

(a) 0.75
(b) 0.12
(c) 1.33
(d) 0.70

Q5. Two specimens of clay A and B are tested in a consolidation apparatus.
If (m_v )_A=3.6×10^(-4) m^2/kW
(m_v )_B=1.8×10^(-4) m^2/ kW
(C_v )_B=1.9×10^(-4) cm^2/s
(C_v )_A=3.8×10^(-4) cm^2/s
Then the ratio K_A / K_B is equal to (where m_v is coefficient of volume change and C_v is coefficient of consolidation):
(a) 0.0625
(b) 0.25
(c) 1.0
(d) 4.0

(a) 0.25 cm/sec
(b) 0.5 cm/sec
(c) 1 cm/sec
(d) 1.25 cm/sec

SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Smaller Size of soil have higher surface area.
→ soil in increasing order of surface
Gravel → sand → silt → clay → colloids

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. e_max=0.8
e_min=0.4
e=0.6
Relative density = (e_(max )-e)/(e_max-e_min )×100
(0.8-0.6)/(0.8-0.4)×100
0.2/0.4×100
=50%

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. r_d=((1-η_a )Gr_ω)/((1+e) )
r_d→ dry density
η_a → percentage air void
G → Specific gravity
e → void ratio
▭(Se=W.G)
▭(r_d=((1-η_a )Gr_ω)/(1+WG))

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. percentage air void (η_a ) = 30%
Porosity (n) = 0.4
Air content (a_c) = ?
η_a = na_c
0.30 = 0.4 × a_c
▭(a_c=0.75)

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol.
Clay A Clay B
(m_v )_A = 3.6 × 10^(-4) m²/kW (m_v )_B = 1.8 × 10^(-4) m²/kW
(C_v )_A = 3.8 × 10^(-4) cm²/kW (C_v )_B = 1.9 × 10^(-4) cm²/kW
▭(k=C_v m_v r_w )
K_A/K_B =((C_V )_A (m_v )_B r_w)/((C_V )_B (m_v )_B r_w )
=(3.8×10^(-4)×3.6× 10^(-4))/(1.9×10^(-4)×1.8×10^(-4) )
▭(K_A/K_B =4)
S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. effective size (D_10 ) = 0.05 cm.
Co-efficient of permeability (k) =?
According to Hazen eq^n –
K = 100 (D_10 )^2
K = 100 × (0.05)²
K = 0.25 cm/sec
