For the following questions answer them individually

Question 1

A cohesive soil yields a maximum dry density of $$18kN/m^3$$ during a standard proctor compaction test. If the specific gravity is 2.65, what would be its void ratio? (Adopt unit of water as $$10kKN/m^3$$)

Video Solution

Question 2

A footing $$2m \times 1m$$ exerts a uniform pressure of $$150kN/m^2$$ on the soil. Assuming a load dispersion of 2 vertical to 1 horizontal, the average vertical stress in $$(kN/m^2)$$ at 1.0m below the footing is
