Test: Plate Load Test - Question 1

### For clay soil the value of n can be taken as _____________ in the absence of test data.

Detailed Solution for Test: Plate Load Test - Question 1

The value of index n can be determined by carrying out two or more plate load tests on different size plate. In absence of test data, the following values of n can be adopted:
Dense sand : 0.4 to 0.5
Loose sand : 0.20 to 0.25
Clay : 0.003 to 0.05
Sand clay : 0.08 to 0.10.

Test: Plate Load Test - Question 2

### Which of the following pose a limitation to plate load test?

Detailed Solution for Test: Plate Load Test - Question 2

A limitation of plate load test is
i) Effect of the size of foundation. For clayey soils the ultimate pressure for a large foundation is the same as that of the test plate. But in dense sandy soils, the bearing capacity increases, with the size of the foundation
ii) Plate load test is essentially a short duration test, and hence the test does not give the ultimate settlement, particularly in the case of cohesive soil.
