Active earth pressure | Passive earth pressure | Earth pressure at rest

What is Earth Pressure? The pressure exerted by soil or earth on the retaining wall is known as Earth pressure. We provide a retaining wall to prevent soil from the sudden collapse of soil mass like a landslide. A soil mass is stable when the slope of the surface of the soil mass is flatter … Read more Active earth pressure | Passive earth pressure | Earth pressure at rest

Differences between compaction and consolidation process of Soil mass

Different between compaction and consolidation 1

Hello friends in this post I have discribed about the differents between compaction and consolidation. Compaction and consolidation both are process of removing void from soil mass. But they possess different process of removing void from soil mass.  What is void? Void is the space between the grains of the soil mass which may be … Read more Differences between compaction and consolidation process of Soil mass

Relation between Discharge velocity and Seepage velocity in soil mass

Relation between Discharge velocity and Seepage velocity

Before I explain to you the relation between discharge velocity and seepage velocity in soil mass you must have some knowledge of permeability and percolation of soil. Because there is the use of the term coefficient of permeability and percolation in derivation. So let me make you clear about these terms. Read Also, Types of … Read more Relation between Discharge velocity and Seepage velocity in soil mass
