GATE2017 CE-2-34
Two identical concrete piles having the plan dimensions $50 \: cm \times 50 \: cm$ are driven into a homogeneous sandy layers as shown in the figures. Consider the bearing capacity factor $N_q$ for $\phi = 30 ^{\circ}$ as $24$. If $Q_{P1}$ and $Q_{P2}$ represent the ultimate point ... by about $100 \%$ $Q_{P1} > Q_{P2}$ by about $5 \%$ $Q_{P1} < Q_{P2}$ by about $5 \%$

A square footing of $2 \: m$ sides rests on the surface of a homogeneous soil bed having the properties: cohesion $c= 24 \: kPa$, angle of internal friction $\phi = 25^{\circ}$, and unit weight $\gamma = 18 \: kN/m^3$. Terzaghi's bearing capacity ... and $N_{\gamma}' =3.2$. The ultimate bearing capacity of the foundation (in $kPa$, round off to $2$ decimal places) is _________

GATE Civil 2012 | Question: 15
An embankment is to be constructed with a granular soil (bulk unit weight $=20 \: kN/m^3$) on a saturated clayey silt deposit (undrained shear strength $=25$ kPa). Assuming undrained general shear failure and bearing capacity factor of $5.7$, the maximum height (in m) of the embankment at the point of failure is $7.1$ $5.0$ $4.5$ $2.5$
