Civil Engineering : Soil Mechanics And Foundation QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS :: part4 : 1 to 5

Following Civil Engineering Multiple choice objective type questions and answers will help you in BSNL JTO, GATE 2021 and IES 2021 examinations :

1.For a loose sand sample and a dense sand sample consolidated to the same effective stress

ultimate strength is same and also peak strength is same
ultimate strength is different but peak strength is same
ultimate strength is same but peak strength of dense sand is greater than that of loose sand
ultimate strength is same but peak

2.Sensitivity of a soil can be defined as

percentage of volume change of soil under saturated condition
ratio of compressive strength of unconfined undisturbed soil to that of soil in a remoulded state
ratio of volume of voids to volume of solids
none of the above

3.Unconfmed compressive strength test is

undrained test
drained test
consolidated undrained test
consolidated drained test

4.Select the incorrect statement. Effective angle of shearing resistance

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

5.In a triaxial compression test when drainage is allowed during the first stage (i. e. application of cell pressure) only and not during the second stage (i.e. application of deviator stress at constant cell pressure), the test is known as

consolidated drained test
consolidated undrained test
unconsolidated drained test
unconsolidated undrained test
