1. If drainage is permitted throughout the test, during the application of both normal, and shear stresses so that full consolidation occurs and no excess pore pressure is set up at any stage of the test, is known as
2. When the seepage pressure becomes equal to the pressure due to submerged weight of a soil, the effective pressure is reduced to zero and the soil particles have a tendency to move up in the direction of flow. This phenomenon is generally known
3. Compression of soil occurs rapidly if voids are filled with
4. The inventor of the term soil mechanics, was
5. In a purely cohesive soil, the critical centre lies at the intersection of
6. In non-cohesive soil in passive state of plastic equilibrium
7. Stoke's law does not hold good if the size of particle is smaller than
8. The total weight of a pycnometer with water and oven dried soil 20 (g) is 1600 g. The pycnometer filled with water alone weighs 1500 g. The specific gravity of the soil, is
9. According to IS : 2720 - 1965, the composition of a dispersing solution used in pipette analysis for determining the size of particles, is
10. The method of the slices is applicable to
11. If the coefficient of the active pressure Ka is 1/3, the coefficient of passive pressure Kp, is
12. Pick up the incorrect definition from the following:
13. A soil mass coated with a thin layer of paraffin weighs 460 g. When immersed, it displaces 299 cc of water. The weight of paraffin is 10 g. If specific gravity of solids is 2.5 and that of paraffin 0.9, the void ratio of soil, is
14. For slopes of limited extent the surface of slippage, is usually along
15. For a base failure of a slope, depth factor
16. The ratio of the undrained strength in the undrained state to the undrained strength, at the same water content, in the remoulded state, is called the sensivity of the clay. Its value for quick clays is
17. The angle of internal friction, is least for
18. The minimum depth of building foundations on
19. Cohesive soils are generally
20. The shearing strength of a cohesion-less soil depends upon
21. The ratio of the volume of water present in a given soil mass to the total volume of its voids, is known
22. The phreatic line in an earth dam may be
23. In a fow net
24. A soil sample of mass specific gravity 1.92, has a moisture content 30%. If the specific gravity of solids is 2.75, the degree of saturation, is
25. Plasticity index is defined as the range of water content between
