Compaction is due to

Solution:

Soil compaction occurs when soil particles are pressed together, reducing pore space between them. Heavily compacted soils contain few large pores, less total pore volume and, consequently, a greater density. A compacted soil has a reduced rate of both water infiltration and drainage. This happens because large pores more effectively move water downward through the soil than smaller pores.

If the deflection at the free end of a uniformly loaded cantilever beam of length 1 m is equal to 7.5 mm, then the slope at the free end is

Solution:

Deflection of a cantilever beam for uniform load is given by:

δmax= WL4/8EI

While the slope at the free end is given by:

θmax=WL3/6EI

Taking ratio of these two equations we get,

(WL4/8EI)/(WL3/6EI)=7.5/θmax

⇒6*1000mm/8=7.5/θmax
