Civil Engineering/ask qes regarding Draucker-prager failue criteria..


QUESTION: A sand material follows Drucker-Prager failure criteria.. a triaxial compression test results gave a friction angel of 30 degree..and cohesion=0..
1)Determine the failure stresses if this sand is subjected to loading such that
(sigma 3) ƃ3=200kpa and b=0.4
Determine the corresponding friction angle .show the stress path for this case on a
Under root J2 vs I1 plane

2)plot friction angle vs b(=0 to 1) for the above case.

ANSWER: Dear Akhtar

Is it a professional problem or educational?
