This paper aims to study the Soil Mechanics. In it you may find the particle size distribution curve…

Introduction

From the chart we have
D10 = 0.2
D30 = 0.45
D60 = 1.20
So
Coefficient of uniformity is = D60/D30
Cu = 1.20/0.2 = 6.0
And
Coefficient of curvature of the soil is = D302/(D10 x D60)
Cc = 0.452/(0.2 x 1.2)
= 0.84375
(iv)
From the particle size distribution chart we can see that the particles are distributed over a wide range. So, this is a well graded soil.

Modern soil stabilization methods in condition of a dense urban environment
The present study is focused on the methods of soil stabilization, the modern day techniques and materials that are available, and the need and understanding of the methods such that soil stabilization in the urban dense areas can be successfully achieved improving the conditions of the soil, increasing their strength and making them more capable of bearing loads. Introduction: Stabilization of…
Head Loss Fluid Mechanics
Fluid flowing through a pipe encounters resistance because of resistance offered by the pipeline, viscosity of the fluid, and the roughness present in the pipeline’s interior surface. The main energy loss in a pipeline is because of friction as the pipeline has usually long length (Sawhney 2011, p629). The pipeline’s total energy decreases based on the direction of the flow. Fluid flowing…
Soil Mechanics (Geotechnics
Soil is composed of particles such as silt, clay, gravel and sand and they can also contain other gases that exist in between these particles. The study of soil is very important because this is what makes the study of geotechnical engineering possible. This is a subtopic in civil engineering and it is a very complex topic. Soil mechanics is applicable in many ways as far as building and…
The shear box test on soil
The shear box test has an advantage over test because of the simplicity of equipment used and the ease in setting it up. The Shear test box also tests soil samples under different conditions such as consolidation, drainage, and saturation conditions. Another advantage of the shear box test is that it is easy to visualize what is happening to the soil as the test is being carried out. Various…
Soil strengthening of age-old-designed railway tracks
The response to the cyclic loading of rail track is an interaction of superstructure and substructure. Ballast, sub-ballast, and sub-grade relates to substructure. Decades of operation bring structural changes of substructures. The sub-grades of the old existing rail tracks require rehabilitation to satisfy proper functioning and meet current technical operational standards. The scope of this…

TYPES OF DRAG Form drag This could be described as the frictional force resulting from the shape of a moving object. This drag remains highly dependent on size and shape of objects; hence, the name form drag (Batchelor 2000). Bodies with larger cross-sectional designs experience higher levels of form drag than those presented with sleek design. The shape and size of a body affects the surface area…

Used to restrict flow through the line. Used to control the velocity of fluid within the piping. Extensively used to measure flow rate within the piping. Orifice in the form of orifice plates is widely used for injecting constant flows to the apparatus. They are vital part of electronic fuel ignition systems where metered amount of fuel is injected within the combustion chamber through orifice, as…
