The unit soil pressure or safe bearing pressure is also known as:
An embankment is to be constructed with granular soil (bulk unit weight = 20 kN/m3) on a saturated clayey silt deposit (undrained shear strength = 25 kPa). Assuming undrained general shear failure and bearing capacity factor of 5.7, the maximum height (in m) of the embankment at the point of failure is

A strip footing is resting on the ground surface of a pure clay bed having an undrained cohesion c_{u}. The ultimate bearing capacity of the footing is equal to
According to Terzaghi theory, what is the value of coefficient (N_{c}) for an angle of shear resistance (ϕ) = 0?
What is the maximum permissible differential settlement for isolated foundation on clay as per I.S. code?
Read the following statements and choose the CORRECT option.
(i) The plate load test, is used to determine the bearing capacity and settlement of soil and may, be carried out by either using a gravity loading or truss loading method.
(ii) As the width of the bearing plate used in the plate load test is very small compared with the actual foundation, it usually only provides an estimate of the bearing capacity up to a depth of twice the width of the bearing plate.
