Soil Mechanics: Engineering Properties
It indicates the facility with which water can flow through soils. It is re quired for estimation of seepage discharge throug h earth masses.
It is related with the deformations produced in soils when they are subjected to compressive load.
3 Shear Strength
It determines the stability of slope bearing capacity of soils and the earth pressure on retaining structures.
