Two soils are placed on top of each other in a constant head permeability test, as illustrated in the figure. Ignore the head loss in the porous stone. Soil A has a hydraulic conductivity of 1×10−2cm/sec, the soil column has a cross-section area of 100cm2, and the discharge rate is Q1 - Q2 = Q3 = 30mL/min (as indicated in the figure). a) Calculate the hydraulic conductivity of soil B. Assume all head loss occurs in the soils and nowhere else. Hint: Write Darcy's eq. for each soil, in terms of the total head at point C. b) The saturated unit weight of soil B is 22kN/m3. Calculate the vertical effective stress at C.
