QUESTION: 1

### The capillarity-permeability test may be also called as___________

Solution:

The apparatus used in capillary-permeability test is horizontal; hence it can be also called as horizontal capillarity test.

QUESTION: 2

### The capillary-permeability test, is used to determine___________

Solution:

The capillarity-permeability test or the horizontal capillarity test is used to determine the coefficient of permeability K as well as the capillarity test hc of the soil sample.

QUESTION: 3

### The bedding planes of soil layers in soil mass may be__________

Solution:

In nature, soil may consist of several layers deposited one above the other.Their bedding planes may be horizontal, inclined or vertical.

QUESTION: 4

Each layer of soil layer has its own value of___________

Solution:

Since layer of soil is assumed to be homogeneous and isotropic, each layer has its own value of coefficient of permeability.

QUESTION: 5

The average permeability of soil deposits depends on__________

Solution:

The average permeability of the whole soil deposit will depend upon the direction of flow with relation to the direction of bedding planes.
