Slope Stability

Natural slopes tend to slide or fall to their lower side, given long enough time. Depending on the saturation degree of…

Elastic Settlement

After finding stresses in soil, we can calculate settlement amount. Settlement of soils in general has three stages: The immediate settlement…

Bearing Strength of Soil

So far, under soil strength section, we have explained total and effective stresses, pore pressure, angle of internal friction, shear strength,…

Cohesion of Clay

Cohesion, although thought to have only one meaning by many engineers, actually has two close meanings to each other. One meaning…

Angle of repose

We talked about angle of internal friction of soil, in previous posts of this series. There is also the angle of…

Triaxial Test

A more complicated version of direct shear test which we talked about in the previous post, is called triaxial test, where…

Stress vs Strain, Elasticity Modulus

After discussing stress and strength, the next important item to know is the relation of stress versus deformation. Imagine a material which is somehow perfectly rigid. In other…
