# A very wide rectangular channel is designed to carry a discharge of 5 m3/s per meter width. The design is based on the Manning's equation with the roughness coefficient obtained from the grain size using Strickler's equation and results in a normal depth of 1.0 m. By mistake, however, the engineer used the grain diameter in mm in the Strickler's equation instead of in meter. What should be the correct normal depth

1.  0.32 m

2.  0.50 m

3.  2.00 m

4.  3.20 m

# A clayey soil has a maximum dry density of 16 kN/m3 and optimum moisture content of 12%. A contractor during the construction of core of an earth dam obtained the dry density 15.2 kN/m3 and water content 11%. This construction is acceptable because.

1.  the density is less than the maximum dry density and water content is on dry side of optimum.

2.  the compaction density is very low and water content is less than 12%.

3.  the compaction is done on the dry side of the optimum.

4.  both the dry density and water content of the compacted soil are within the desirable limits

4

both the dry density and water content of the compacted soil are within the desirable limits
