Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 1

### The shearing resistance of a soil is constituted by___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 1

The shearing resistance of soil is constituted by
1) The structural resistance to displacement of the soil because of the interlocking of the particles
2) The frictional resistance to translocation between the individual soil particles at their contact points.

Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 2

### The shear strength in cohesion less soil is due to___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 2

The shear strength in cohesion less soils from inter granular friction, while in other soils it results both from internal friction as well as cohesion.

Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 3

### The planes that exist in soil mass is______________

Detailed Solution for Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 3

In a loaded soil mass, there exist three typical planes, mutually orthogonal to each other. These planes are called the principal planes.

Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 4

The failure condition for a soil cam be expressed in terms of limiting shear stress, called__________

Detailed Solution for Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 4

The failure conditions for a soil may be expressed in terms of limiting stress, called shear strength or as a function of the principal stresses.

Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 5

The shear deformation of soil in a building can cause___________of the following?

Detailed Solution for Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 5

Shearing deformation of soil may be in the form of sinking of a footing, or movement of a wedge of soil particles or on masses upon the action of a shear stress.

Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 6

Major principal stress in a soil is represented by the symbol________________

Detailed Solution for Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 6

Major, intermediate and minor principal stresses are represented by the corresponding symbols σ1, σ2, and σ3.

Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 7

The circle obtained from two dimensional stress system is known as

Detailed Solution for Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 7

The circle drawn from two dimensional stress systems is known as Mohr’s circle of stress (Mohr, 1870).

Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 8

The maximum shear stress τmax, for a soil mass is equal to___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 8

The maximum shear stress τmax is equal to (σ1 – σ3)/2 which occurs on planes with α= 45°.

Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 9

The normal stresses acting on planes of the soil are known as_____________

Detailed Solution for Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 9

The normal stresses acting on principal planes are called the principal stresses.

Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 10

Stress component on planes of a loaded soil mass depends upon____________

Detailed Solution for Test: Mohr's Stress Circle - Question 10

Through a point in a loaded soil mass, innumerable planes passes and stress component on each plane depend upon the direction of the plane.
