Consolidation and Settlement: settlement of structures on soils, immediate (elastic), consolidation settlement and secondary compression. Settlement of structure on cohesionless soil using sedimentary Schmartmann’s method.
Sheer strength of Solids: General strength consideration, state of stress at a point and Mohr stress circle. Mohr Coulomb theory failure: shear tests; vane shear test, direct shear test, tri-axial test; shear strength of saturated clays, shear strength of compacted unsaturated clays, sensitivity of soils, residual strength parameters.
