Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 3

### A major drawback of Mohr criterion is____________

Detailed Solution for Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 3

The major drawback of Mohr criterion is that the curved shape of the envelope, hence the functional form of the equation τmax=F (σn) is not amendable to mathematical computation.

Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 4

The yield or failure criterion can be expressed as____________

Detailed Solution for Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 4

The yield criterion may be expressed as f (I1, I2, I3) =0
Where I1, I2, I3 are the invariant of stress.

Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 5

If the auxiliary plane in hydrostatic axis passes through the origin, then its equation is_____________

Detailed Solution for Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 5

If the auxiliary plane passes through the origin its equation is σ1+σ2+σ3=0 and equation will be σ1+σ2+σ3=constant if the plane is perpendicular to the hydrostatic axis.

Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 6

The intersection of the yield surface or envelope with octahedral plane is called____________

Detailed Solution for Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 6

The intersection of yield surface with octahedral plane is called the failure locus .A point on the failure locus represents the stress state at incipient failure.

Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 7

The hydrostatic pressure’s inability to produce failure under normal pressure was first demonstrated by___________

Detailed Solution for Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 7

Experiments conducted by Cross land in 1965 have demonstrated that a pure state of hydrostatic pressure is unable to produce failure even under enormous pressure.

Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 8

Which of the following equation represent hydrostatic pressure in its purest form?

Detailed Solution for Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 8

According to cross land σ1=σ2=σ3 represent hydrostatic pressure in its purest form.

Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 9

The Mohr-Coulomb criterion assumes that the strength of the soil is independent of____________

Detailed Solution for Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 9

The Mohr-Coulomb criterion implicitly assumes that the strength is independent of the intermediate principal stress σ2.

Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 10

The auxiliary plane in the hydrostatic axis can also be called as___________

Detailed Solution for Test: The Mohr - Coulomb Failure Envelope - Question 10

Since all the points in the auxiliary plane represent deviatorial state of stress, the plane is also called the deviatoric plane.
