33)Who studied the problems because of stress distribution in soils due to a concentrated load.
- a) Terzaghi
- b) G.B Airy
- c) Darcy
- d) Boussinesq
Answer: d) Boussinesq
In 1885, Boussinesq studied & solved stress distribution problems in soils because of the concentrated loads acting at the ground surface.
The law of flow of water through the soils was given by darcy.
In 1862, G.B Airy introduced the stress function.
