Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 1

Rectangular plot method has been suggested by _________

Detailed Solution for Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 1

A simplified rectangular plot method for finding the stability of slopes was suggested by Singh in 1962.

Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 2

Stability analysis by Swedish method of slices gave following values per meter run of 10 m high embankment (i) total shearing force = 480 kN (ii) total normal force = 1950 kN (iii) Radius of failure arc = 15 m (iv) length of arce = 22 m. If C = 24 kN/m2, ϕ = 6°, then the factor of safety with respect to shear strength is 

Detailed Solution for Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 2

According to the Swedish method,


Calculation:
Given, Total shear force = 480 kN
Total normal force = 1950 kN
Length of arc, L = 22 m
Radius of failure arc, R = 15 m
C = 24 kN/m2 and  ϕ = 6°
The factor of safety with respect to shear strength is given by,

Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 3

The slip circle having the minimum factor of safety is called ___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 3

A number of trial critical slip circle are chosen against sliding and factor of safety of each is computed. The circle having the minimum factor of safety is the critical slip circle.

Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 4

When does the critical condition of d/s slope, occur in reservoir?

Detailed Solution for Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 4

Critical condition of d/s slope occurs when the reservoir is full and percolation is at its maximum rate.

Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 5

Stability of slopes of an earth dam is tested under, which of the following condition?

Detailed Solution for Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 5

The stability of slopes of an earth dam is tested under the following conditions:
(i) Stability of downstream slope during steady seepage
(ii) Stability of upstream slope during a sudden drawdown
(iii) Stability of upstream and downstream slopes during and immediately after construction.

Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 6

The area of U-diagram in finding stability of D/S slope during steady seepage, can be measured by ___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 6

The area of U-diagram can be measured with the help of a planimeter, or else the rectangular plot method can be utilized.

Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 7

The pore water pressure at any point on the slip surface is represented by ____________

Detailed Solution for Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 7

The pore water pressure at any point is represented by the piezometric head hw at that point.

Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 8

In Hilf’s equation ‘u = pa Δ / (va + hc γw – Δ)’, hc refers to __________

Detailed Solution for Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 8

In Hilf’s equation hc refers to Henry’s constant of solubility of air in water by volume (= 0.02 at 68°F).

Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 9

In Swedish circle method ___________ analysis cases are considered.

Detailed Solution for Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 9

In Swedish slip circle method two cases are considered: i) analysis of purely cohesive soil (φu = 0) and ii) analysis of a soil possessing both cohesion and friction (C-φ analysis).

Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 10

In the rectangular plot method if there are n-slices, the total number of ordinates will be ____________

Detailed Solution for Test: Swedish Circle Method - Question 10
