Q#3: For a normally consolidated clay layer in the field, the following values are given. Thickness of clay layer = 2.6 m Compression index = 0.28 Average effective pressure on clay layer 127 KN/m² Secondary compression index = 0.02 Δσ’ = 46.5 KN/m² Void ratio = 0.8 Time of Primary settlement = 1.5 years What is the total consolidation of the clay layer five years after the primary consolidation settlement?
For a normally consolidated clay layer in the field, the following values are given:Thickness of clay layer = 8.5 ftVoid ratio ?? = 0.8Compression index ?? = 0.28Average effective pressure on the clay layer ??′ = 2650 lb ft2 ⁄∆?′ = 970 lb ft2 ⁄Secondary compression index ?? = 0.02What is the total consolidation settlement of the clay layer five years after the completionof primary consolidation settlement? (Note: Time for completion of primary settlement= 1.5 years.)
If a representative clay specimen 20 mm thick, under double drainage, took 121 minutes for 90% primary compression, estimate the time in days required for 50% primary compression of a field layer 2 m thick, bounded by impervious boundary at the bottom and sand at the top. a.679 b.781 c.650 d.725
