(10 pts) Calculate the values of Cu and Cc. What do these values imply? Page 1 of 2 d. (15 pts) In the ground (in-situ) at the quarry site, the granular fill has a total unit
weight ( t) of 125 pcf, a porosity (n) of 0.35, and a water content (w) of 12%.
Determine: the specific gravity of solids (Gs), the degree of saturation (S), and the dry
unit weight ( d) for the in-situ quarry soil.
e. The borrow soil (granular fill) will be compacted in the excavation at the building site
to achieve a dry unit weight of 117 pcf, at a water content of 14%. Determin...
