What are the Soil properties, which are influenced by soil structure?
Soil structure is an important factor which influences many soil properties such as permeability, compressibility, and shear strength.
The single grained structure is a characteristic of __________
Single grained structure is usually found in coarse-grained soil.
Soil structure usually defines __________
Soil structure is defined as the arrangement and state of aggregation of soil particle in a soil mass.
An arrangement composed of ‘flocs’ of soil particle is known as __________
An arrangement composed of ‘flocs’ of soil particle is known as flocculent structure. As the particles are oriented ‘edge-to-edge’ (or) ‘edge-to-face’ with respect to one another.
An arrangement composed of soil particle having a parallel orientation is ___________
In dispersed structure of particle are oriented face to face with one another in a dispersed state.
The skeleton and matrix structure represent ___________
An arrangement of coarse grains forming a skeleton and matrix represent composite soils.
The soil structure, having comparative loose stable structure is ____________
Honey comb structure is composed of loosely arranged bundle of particle. Hence they have comparatively less stable structure than others.
The honey comb, flocculent and dispersed structure are found in ___________
