Homework Help: soil mechanics

Posted by nick on Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 7:27pm.

total normal stresses of 110 and 40 kpa are applied to two planes at right angles in an element of soil. the shear stress acting on those palnes is 20 kpa. what must be the value of the pore pressure in the element if the minor principle stress in the elemnt is to be zero?
