In Newmark's influence chart for stress distribution, there are eight concentric circles and ten radial lines. The influence factor of the chart is

Statement (A) : In Boussinesq's theory of stress computations, soil is considered to be unstressed before application of the load.
Statement (B) : The contact pressure distribution under a rigid footing in cohesionless soil, is uniform throughout the width of the footing.
Westergaard’s theory is applicable for which type of soil?
For a vertical concentrated load acting on the surface of a semiinfinite elastic mass, the vertical normal stress at a depth z is proportional to:
A concentrated load of 2000 kN is applied at the ground surface. What is the vertical stress at a point 6 m directly below the load ?
In the case of stratified soil layers, the best equation that can be adopted for computing the pressure distribution is
If the saturated density of a given soil is 2.1 t/m^{2}, then the total stress (T in t/m^{2}) and the effective stress (E in t/m^{2}) of a saturated soil stratum at depth of 4 m will be
A point load exerts a maximum vertical stress at a radial distance of 1 m and at a depth of :
