## Soil Mechanics and Foundation The total discharge from two wells situated near to each other is

equal to larger of the two discharges from individual wells
less than the sum of the discharges from individual wells
sum of the discharges from individual wells
greater than the sum of the discharges from individual wells

## Soil Mechanics and Foundation Terzaghi’s theory of one dimensional consolidation assumes

All listed here
Deformation of the soil, is entirely due to change in volume
Water and soil particles are incompressible
Soil is homogeneous and fully saturated

## Soil Mechanics and Foundation Unconfmed compressive strength test is

undrained test
consolidated undrained test

drained test

## Soil Mechanics and Foundation If the water table rises upto ground surface, then the

effective stress is reduced due to increase in pore water pressure only but total stress does not change
effective stress is reduced due to decrease in total stress only but pore water pressure does not change
total stress is increased due to decrease in pore water pressure but effective stress does not change
total stress is reduced due to increase in pore water pressure only but effective stress does not change
