# Relation Between Dry Unit Weight, Specific Gravity, Percentage of Air Voids and Water Content

Relation Between Dry Unit Weight, Specific Gravity, Percentage of Air Voids and Water Content In this article, we shall make the formula or relation between the dry unit weight(), specific gravity(G), percentage of air voids and water content(w). [Note: Dry unit weight means dry density] Soil three-phase diagram is shown in the above picture. From … Continue reading Relation Between Dry Unit Weight, Specific Gravity, Percentage of Air Voids and Water Content

# Relation Between Void Ratio, Water Content, Degree of Saturation & Specific Gravity

Relation Between Void Ratio, Water Content, Degree of Saturation & Specific Gravity In this article, we will make a formula or equation or relation between void ratio(e), water content(w), degree of saturation() and specific gravity(G). Let, = Weight of soil solid in a given soil mass. = Weight of water. = Volume of soil solid … Continue reading Relation Between Void Ratio, Water Content, Degree of Saturation & Specific Gravity

# Relation Between Dry unit Weight, Bulk unit Weight & Water Content

Relation Between Dry unit Weight, Bulk unit Weight & Water Content In this article,we will make the formula/relation between the dry unit weight(), bulk unit weight() and water content(w). [Note: Bulk unit weight means bulk density, and dry unit weight means dry density. So, be careful if the question is like that; derive the relation … Continue reading Relation Between Dry unit Weight, Bulk unit Weight & Water Content
