Question: the following parameters have been determined for a given soil...

Question details
  1. The following parameters have been determined for a given soil: ρ = 1.75 g/cm3, ρdry = 1.56 g/cm3, Gs = 2.68. Fill in a completed phase diagram for this soil, and then answer the following questions:

  2. a) What is the void ratio, e, of this soil?

  3. b) What is the degree of saturation, Sr, of this soil?

  4. c) If the soil were fully saturated, what would be its saturated density, ρsat (in g/cm3)?

  5. d) What would be the density of this soil (in g/cm3) for Sr = 85%?

  6. e) What would be the unit weight, γ, of this soil (in kN/m3) if Sr = 85%?
