Test: Seepage Discharge Through Anisotropic Soil - Question 1

### For an anisotropic soil, the permeability in the horizontal and vertical direction are kx and ky respectively. What will be the effective permeability of the soil?

Detailed Solution for Test: Seepage Discharge Through Anisotropic Soil - Question 1

For an anisotropic soil, kx ≠ ky. Therefore, the effective permeability of the soil is given by k’=√(kxky).

Test: Seepage Discharge Through Anisotropic Soil - Question 2

### If the effective permeability k’ is 6*10-7cm/s and ky = 4*10-7cm/s, then kx is equal to ________

Detailed Solution for Test: Seepage Discharge Through Anisotropic Soil - Question 2

Given,
k’ = 6*10-7cm/s
ky = 4*10-7cm/s
k’ = √(kxky)
6*10-7 = √(4*10-7* kx)
∴ k= 9*10-7cm/s.

Test: Seepage Discharge Through Anisotropic Soil - Question 3

### The coefficient of permeability is 6*10-7cm/s for a soil with a certain liquid. If the viscosity is reduced to half, then the coefficient of permeability is __________

Detailed Solution for Test: Seepage Discharge Through Anisotropic Soil - Question 3

Given,
k = 6*10-7cm/s
if the viscosity is reduced to half, the coefficient of permeability doubles.
∴ k = 12*10-7cm/s.

Test: Seepage Discharge Through Anisotropic Soil - Question 4

A soil mass has k= 8*10-7cm/s and k= 4*10-7cm/s. The effective permeability of the soil is ______

Detailed Solution for Test: Seepage Discharge Through Anisotropic Soil - Question 4

Given,
k= 8*10-7cm/s
ky = 4*10-7cm/s
k’ = √(kxky)
k’ = √(8*10-7 *4*10-7)
k’ = 5.6*10-7cm/s.

Test: Seepage Discharge Through Anisotropic Soil - Question 5

If a fully saturated soil mass has a water content of 100%, then its void ratio is _________

Detailed Solution for Test: Seepage Discharge Through Anisotropic Soil - Question 5

Given,
Degree of saturation S = 1
water content w = 100%
void ratio e = wG/s
∴ e = 1G/1
∴ e = G.
