- a) Vane shear test
- b) Slow test
- c) Direct shear test
- d) Quick test
Komal Bhandakkar Answered question January 5, 2021
Answer: b) Slow test
- The drained test is prolonged since, in a drained test, perforated grids are sheared very slowly & hence the complete dissipation of pore pressure occurs.
- In the drained test, the complete dissipation of pore pressure takes place & it requires a 2-5 days for shearing cohesive type of soil. Hence the soil in a drained test is sheared very gradually.
