## Soil Mechanics and Foundation Select the incorrect statement. Effective angle of shearing resistance

is rarely more than 30° for fine grained soil
increases as the soil gradation im-proves
increases as the size of particles increases
is limited to a maximum value of 45°

## Soil Mechanics and Foundation In the plate loading test for determining the bearing capacity of soil, the size of square bearing plate should be

less than 300 mm
between 750 mm and 1 m
greater than 1 m
between 300 mm and 750 mm

## Soil Mechanics and Foundation Physical properties of a permeant which influence permeability are

None of these
viscosity only
both viscosity and unit weight
unit weight only

## Soil Mechanics and Foundation If the water content of a fully saturated soil mass is 100%, then the voids ratio of the sample is

equal to specific gravity of soil
greater than specific gravity of soil
less than specific gravity of soil
independent of specific gravity of soil

## Soil Mechanics and Foundation A cylindrical specimen of saturated soil failed under an axial vertical stress of 100kN/m2 when it was laterally unconfmed. The failure plane was inclined to the horizontal plane at an angle of 45°. The values of cohesion and angle of internal friction for the soil are respectively

0.05 N/mm² and 0°
0.5 N/mm² and 30°
0.05 N/mm² and 45°
0.2 N/mm² and 0°
