(clearly identify values for the slope angle, , and the shear stress intercept, d ). Your plots must be made on grid paper. Your calculations must clearly show what the principal stresses are for each Mohrs circle. 2. A sample of clayey soil has the following properties: Natural moisture content = 36%; Plastic limit = 27; Liquid limit = 44; Fines content = 95%; and Clay faction = 33%. Provide estimates of the peak, softened, and residual drained friction angles. Cite the source(s) of the information you used in developing your estimates....
