Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 3

### The inside of the shrinkage dish is coated with a thin layer of _________

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 3

Vaseline prevents the formation of air-bubbles. Hence it is used as for inner coating in a shrinking dish.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 4

The shape of particle size curve, which is represented by the coefficient of curvature (Cc) is given by __________

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 4

The coefficient of curvature (Cc) is given by the equation Cc = (D30)2/D10×D60.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 5

The curve situated at the right side of the particle size distribution curve is _________

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 5

The right side the particle size distribution curve shows the coarse-grained while the left shows the relatively fine-grained soil.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 6

What are the ways of preventing of inclusion of air bubbles in shrinkage dish?

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 6

Mixing the soil with sufficient distilled water and making it pasty enough prevents forming air bubbles in shrinking dish.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 7

A curve with a flat portion, in particle size distribution curve represent __________

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 7

A curve with a flat portion represents oil in which intermediate size particle are missing.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 8

The volume shrinkage (VS) is defined by the formula _________

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 8

Since VS = (VL-Vd) × 100/Vd
But, (VL-Vd)×100/Vd = (WL-WS) SR
Therefore, VS = (WL-WS) SR.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 9

The time of settlement of the finest particle of soil sample is 15hr20min49sec. calculate the height of the water tank. Take D = 0.01 mm, γ = 0.905D2.

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 9

γ = 0.905(0.01)
γ = 9.05 × 10-5
t = 15hr 20min 49sec = 55429 sec
t = h/v
55429 = h/9.05 × 10-5
h = 55429 × 9.05 × 10-5
h = 5.000034 m.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 10

Shrinking limit can be found out using alternate method, if __________

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 10

Alternatively, shrinking limit can be found out if the specific gravity G of the soil grains is known.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 11

A particle-size distribution curve gives us an idea about __________

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 11

A particle-size curve shows both type and gradation of the soil.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 12

The density of the mercury, used in shrinkage limit apparatus is _________

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 12

The density of mercury = 13.6 g/cm3.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 13

For coarse grained soil, the particle size D10 is sometimes called as __________

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 13

The size D10 is sometimes called as the effective size or effective diameter.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 14

The volume of the wet soil, present in shrinkage dish_________ of volume of dish.

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 14

One –third of shrinkage dish is filled with wet soil to prevent overflow.

Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 15

The coefficient of uniformity (CV) is the ratio of _________

Detailed Solution for Test: Shrinkage Limit & Particle Size Distribution Curve - Question 15

The coefficient of uniformity CV, is defined as the ratio of D60 and D10
i.e.CV = D60/ D10.
