Question details

The dimensions of the moist soil sample compacted in a three dimensional steel box, is represented by the shaded region provided in the diagram below. The shaded part represents the dimension of the moist natural soil sample. In its natural moist state, the soil sample in the steel box has the total weight of 33660 g before the water content determination. of the soil is given as 2.75 The specific gravity The values obtained for the determination of water content are: The mass of moist soil sample mass of steel box- 35160 g: the mass of partially dry soil sample + mass of steel tube 34660 g: the mass of fully dried soil sample +mass of steel tube 26160; the mass of steel tube 1500 g. Calculate the following values: i(3%) Water content 20 40 60 cm 10 80 cm cm (3%) Natural most density
(396) Natural moist density ii(4%) Dry density. Kindly note: Using both the single formula approach and the relationship formula approach for bulk and dry density. ii (3%) The mass of solid and mass of water and mass of air iii. (3%) The volume of solid, volume of water and volume of air
iii. (3%) The volume of solid, volume of water and volume of air -(290) The degree of saturation vi (2%) The void ratio, e m(2%) The porosity, n viii. (3%) Calculate the mass of solid in grams if the water content occupies the entire void, for full saturation?
ix. (5%) Draw the comprehensive volume-mass relationship (phase diagram) of the moist soil sample and indicate if the soil is fully saturated, partially saturated or dry? List all the components in the soil
