Estimate k at a void ratio of 0.97. Use Eq. (7.38).

Redo Problem 7.18 using Mesri and Olson’s (1971) procedure given by Eq. (7.37).

To determine

Find the hydraulic conductivity k3 of the sand at void ratio of 0.97.

Explanation

Given information:

The hydraulic conductivity (k1) at void ratio (e1) of 0.78 is 0.45×106cm/sec.

The hydraulic conductivity (k2) at void ratio (e2) of 1.1 is 0.88×106cm/sec.

The given void ratio (e3) is 0.97.

Calculation:

Determine the experimentally derived constant A using the relation.

A=logk1logk2loge1loge2

Substitute 0.45×106cm/sec for k1, 0.88×106cm/sec for k2, 0.78 for e1, and 1.1 for e2.

A=log(0.45×106)log(0.88×106)log0.78log1.1=6.3467+6.05550
