The entire difficulties and strategies you must evaluate for the rules and keeping constructions part of the Professional Engineer (PE) examination for Civil Engineering.

This booklet is derived from bankruptcy four of Civil Engineering License Review and Civil Engineering License difficulties and Solutions. It comprises the whole evaluate of the subject, instance questions with step by step recommendations, and end-of-chapter perform difficulties. It contains a overall of fifty two PE issues of whole step by step recommendations: 10 pattern difficulties and forty two end-of-chapter difficulties. This code-specific assessment ebook references the 1997 UBC.

Sample text

The drilled rock core is collected in the core barrel as the drilling progresses. Once the rock core has been cut and the core barrel is full, the drill rods are pulled from the borehole and the rock core is extracted from the core barrel. A rotary drill rig, such as shown in Fig. 6, is often used for the rock coring operation. ” For soil, the most common method is to force a sampler into the soil by either hammering, jacking, or pushing the sampler into the soil located at the bottom of the borehole.

Driving of the sampler spoon above the bottom of the casing The N value is increased in sands and reduced in cohesive soil. Failure to maintain sufficient hydrostatic head in boring The water table in the borehole must be at least equal to the piezometric level in the sand; otherwise the sand at the bottom of the borehole may be transformed to a loose state. Attitude of operators Blow counts for the same soil using the same rig can vary, depending on who is operating the rig and perhaps the mood of operator and time of drilling.

The process consists of first remolding the clay by rotating the vane about 5 to 10 times. Then the torque is measured and Eq. 6 is used to obtain the undrained shear strength for remolded clay sur. The sensitivity St of the clay can be calculated as the undrained shear strength divided by the undrained shear strength of remolded clay, or St = su/sur.
