A dense silt clay has the following properties:

Void ratio e=0.30

Effective diameter D10=10 𝜇m

Capillary constant C=0.20cm2

Free ground water level is 8.0 m below the ground surface.

a) Find the capillary rise in the silt.

b) Find the vertical effective stress in kPa at 5 m depth. Assume 𝛾s=26.5 kN/m3 and that the soil above the capillary rise and ground surface is partially saturated at 50%.

c) Find the vertical effective stress at depth 10 m depth. Assume 𝛾s=26.5 kN/m3 and that the soil above the capillary action rise and ground surface is partially saturated at 50%.
