Test: Direct Shear - Question 3

### The direct shear test can also be called as __________

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct Shear - Question 3

Since the shearing strain is made to increase at a constant rate in a direct shear test, and hence the test is called the Strain controlled shear box test.

Test: Direct Shear - Question 4

The commonly used apparatus used for performing shear box test is___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct Shear - Question 4

Shear-box test is most commonly used apparatus for direct shear test.

Test: Direct Shear - Question 5

To conduct un-drained test, which of the following is used?

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct Shear - Question 5

To conduct un-drained test, plane grids are used and for the drained test, perforated grids are used.

Test: Direct Shear - Question 6

The drained test is also known as___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct Shear - Question 6

In drained test, perforated grids are sheared sufficiently slowly so that complete dissipation of pore pressure takes place.

Test: Direct Shear - Question 7

Which of the following is a disadvantage of shear box test?

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct Shear - Question 7

The stress condition across the soil sample is very complex. The distribution of normal stresses and shearing stresses over the potential surface of sliding is not uniform. The entire strength of the soil is not mobilized simultaneously.

Test: Direct Shear - Question 8

The shearing of cohesive soil in drained test requires___________days.

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct Shear - Question 8

As the soil in drained test is sheared sufficiently slowly so that complete dissipation of pore pressure takes place, it takes 2 to 5 days long for shearing cohesive type of soil.

Test: Direct Shear - Question 9

A major difference between the direct shear test and tri axial shear test is_____________

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct Shear - Question 9

As compared to the tri axial system, there is a little control on the drainage of soil in direct shear test.

Test: Direct Shear - Question 10

. In direct shear test, the soil load is subjected to more stress at_____________

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct Shear - Question 10

In direct shear test, the stress condition across the soil sample are very complex, the stress is more at the edges and less in the Centre. Due to this there is a progressive failure of the specimen.
