Geotechnical Engineering II Internship Test

Intern has to take Geotechnical Engineering II internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Geotechnical Engineering II topic.

1. The hydrostatic pressure’s inability to produce failure under normal pressure was first demonstrated by ___________
(A) Cross land
(B) W. Pager
(C) D.C. Drucker
(D) Mohr
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Experiments conducted by Cross land in 1965 have demonstrated that a pure state of hydrostatic pressure is unable to produce failure even under enormous pressure.

2. The plastic state of stress when the failure is imminent was investigated by ___________
(A) Rankine
(B) Darcy
(C) Skempton
(D) Terzaghi
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: The plastic state of stress failure of the soil samples was studied by Rankine in the year 1860. Darcy is known for his works in the field of soil permeability.

3. In active state of plastic equilibrium, the earth pressure on the wall ________
(A) increases
(B) decreases
(C) is zero
(D) is constant
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: When the wall moves away from the backfill, mobilization of the internal resistance of the soil takes place in the direction away from the wall. Hence the earth pressure on the wall decreases.

4. The theory of plasticity pertaining to soils is based on ___________
(A) Mohr’s theory
(B) Rankine’s method
(C) Mohr-coulomb theory
(D) None of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: The theory of plasticity pertaining to soils is based on Mohr’s theory of rupture.

5. The coefficient of active earth pressure is_______ than the coefficient of passive pressure.
(A) less than
(B) greater than
(C) equal to
(D) insufficient data
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: The coefficient of active earth pressure is less than that of the coefficient of passive earth pressure. The coefficient of active earth pressure is also less than that of the coefficient of earth pressure at rest.
