Re: Angle of Repose - Saturated Soil

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


It would depend on the type of soil you have.  Saturated sand will flow almost like water whereas a very sticky clay will pile up like dog poo (my geotechnical professor is probably having chest pains right about now).

Please respond to

Angle of Repose - Saturated Soil

I would appreciate if you could give me some advice regarding the angle of repose for the saturated
soil. Based on a few soil books i was considering a reduce value of the angle of repose to about 5
degree below that for the dry material. Is this acceptable concept?

Any advise will be greatly appreciated.
