Question

A strip footing 2.5 m wide carries a uniform pressure of 248
kN/m² on the surface of a sand deposit. The water table is at the
surface, and saturated unit weight of sand of 20.8 kN/m³. Determine
the effective vertical stresses (kPa) at a point 3.8 m below the
point 3.2 m from the centre of the footing to the
**LEFT** after the application of the pressure. (2
d.p). Use unit weight of water 9.8 kN/m^{3}

A wall is supported on a 1.0 m wide strip footing located 1.5 m
below the ground surface. The surrounding soil has a dry unit
weight of 17.5 kN/m3, a saturated unit weight of 19.0 kN/m3,
cohesion of 8 kPa and angle of internal friction of 26°.
Groundwater was located 2m below ground surface. Using a factor of
safety of 3, determine the allowable bearing capacity if a) the
footing is considered infinitely long, and b) the footing is 8...

A very wide embankment 5 m high is constructed from a fill with
a unit weight of 16 kN/m3 over a saturated sand deposit with the
presence of water table coinciding with its top surface. At a depth
of 3 m below the top surface of the sand deposit, determine the
following: (a) total and effective vertical stresses before
construction of the embankment, (b) increase in vertical stress
induced by the construction of the embankment, and (c) total and
effective...

Determine the ultimate bearing capacity for a strip footing 0.7
m in width buried to a depth of 0.9 m in clay silt till with a unit
weight of 18.8 kN/m3 an internal friction of 25 degrees
and a cohesion of 58 kPa. Assume the water table is at the base of
the footing. Provide your answer in kPa as a whole number.

A 1.5 m square 0.4 thick footing supports a column load of 350
kN. The underlying soil has a unit weight of 18 kN/m3 and the
ground water table is 2 m below the ground surface. Compute the
change is vertical stress and final vertical stress beneath the
corner of this footing at a depth of 5 m using the 2:1 and
Boussinesq methods. The footing is placed on the ground surface.
Include selfweight of the footing. Discuss the differences...

A wide loaded area carries a net uniformly distributed
pressure q = 150 kPa on a soil profile that consists of 3 layers [4
m sand (20 kN/m³) over 2 m clay (18 kN/m³) over 3. m sand]. The
water table is at the top of clay layer. The permeability of sand
is very large. Cv = 0.50 m2/year; Calpha= 0.05; eo = 1.00. Compute
the settlement due to secondary compression after 60 years.

Determine the allowable design load for a column resting on a
rectangular footing 2 m by 9 m, buried to a depth of 2 m in clay
soil with a unit weight of 18.5 kN/m3, internal friction
of 39 degrees, a drained cohesion of 36 kPa and undrained shear
strength of 119 kPa. Assume the short-term condition governs, water
table is at the ground surface and use a factor of safety of 3.
Provide your answer in kN as a...

At a reclamation site, a 6-m thick sand layer overlies a 5.8-m
thick clay layer, which is underlain by impermeable rock stratum.
The water level is initially 2.5 m above the ground surface. The
saturated unit weights of sand and clay are 19 kN/m3 and 17 kN/m3,
respectively. A 5-m thick layer of fill will be placed on the
original ground surface, and the unit weights of fill are 19 kN/m3
and 20 kN/m3 above and below water table, respectively....

Determine the total force per unit length acting on a 3.6 m high
retaining wall. The soil that is backfilled level behind the wall
is a granular soil with a total unit weight of 18.4
kN/m3 and a saturated unit weight of 19.5
kN/m3. The at-rest earth pressure coefficient for the
soil is 0.47. The water table is expected to raise to a depth of
2.5 below the ground surface. A surcharge of 59 kPa is applied
above the soil...

The pressure 11.0 m under the water's surface is measured to be
198.0 kPa. Assume the density of the water is 1000kg/m3.
At what distance above the reference point (in m)
would you measure a pressure of 160.0 kPa? Do not assume the
surface of the water is at a pressure of 101 kPa.
