### Section a Soil and Foundation Engineering 5th Sem /Civil/May 2016 Diploma Paper

Permeability of coarse grained soil is ______________than fine grain soil. For fully saturated soil the value of S = _____________ (%). The consistency limits are also known as ______________ The compression of saturated soil due to expulsion of water is called __________________ For purely cohesive soil the angle of shearing resistance is ___________________ During compaction the voids of soil ___________________ Plate load test is used to determine _____________ of soil. A block sample is ____________ sample Pile foundation is an example of ____________ foundation. Piles which resist tensile forces are called _____________ piles. If N values for soil mass are more in SPT, the soil is termed as loose.T/F Well compacted soil has more percentage of voids.T/F Clay has particles size greater than 0.002mm.T/F Bearing capacity of soil increases with compaction.T/F Void ratio of loose soil is less than compacted soil.T/F
