Any questions plz feel free to text me

INTRODUCTION:

-Soil has three main and fundamental engineering properties to be considered which are shear strength, permeability, and compressibility. Soil is categorized according to the sizes of its particles which can reveal how stiff, strong, and permeable the soil is. The soil classification according to the British Standard mentions that the very coarse soils consists of particle size that ranges from 60 mm up to 200 mm. The coarse soil particles size ranges from 0.2 mm up to 60 mm while the fine soil particle size ranges from 0.002 mm, which is considered as clay, up to 0.2 mm.

The field density test, also known as, soil bulk unit weight test is carried out to basically determine the density of fine soil. The unit bulk density can be used to figure out compaction of soil as well as the condition of soil which can affect many soil parameters such as: the capacity of water available, porosity, infiltration, plant nutrient accessibility, and much more that can control productivity of soil.

 

EXPERIMENT 1: Soil Particle Distribution 

2.1. Objective: – The objective of this experiment is to figure out the percentage of various sizes of soil grains inside one particular soil sample through mechanical sieve analysis which will determine the coarse soil particles.

2.2. Procedure:  – First of all, I weighed all the sieves that were used in the experiment as well as the pan. Secondly, I collected 1 kilogram of soil consisting of fine aggregates which then I poured into the sieves that I lined on top of each other from 20 mm down to 63 micrometers and pan under all. After that, I fixed the sieves onto the mechanical sieve shaker and switched it on for approximately 10 minutes. Finally, I took the sieves out of the shaker noted down the weight of each sieve with the soil retained as well as the pan where the fine soil was retained.

EXPERIMENT 3: Field density test  

4.1. Objective: – The objective of this experiment is to figure out the bulk and dry density of sand.

4.2. Procedure:  -First of all, I determined the volume within the calibrating container from the given dimensions. Secondly, I filled the cylinder with sand and left a space of 10 mm on top and I measured the total mass M1. After that, I fixed the cylinder on top of the container and unfastened the shutter until the sand stopped pouring and I closed it. I took the cylinder and weighed it with the remaining sand M2. After recording the weight, I fixed the cylinder on top of a horizontal level surface and unfastened the shutter once again and closed with the sand stopped moving. Finally, I removed the cylinder and collected the sand on the horizontal surface and weighed it as M3.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

In the field density test, it was found that the bulk density is 1252.86 kg/m3. According to the bulk density classifications, this amount of bulk density does not restrict the growth of plants in this soil because it is less than 1.10 g/m3 which is considered as clay. The dry density was found out to be 1292.047 kg/m3 which is also ideal for plants because it is less than 1.10 g/cm3 and also considered as clay

– In the soil particle distribution experiment, it was found that the value of Cu is 13.33 and the value of Cc is 1.2. According to the British Standard BS, if the Cu value is greater than 5 and the Cc value is between 0.5 and 2.0, then the classification of soil is considered as wellgraded. In the case of this experiment I conducted, the soil is well-graded.

 

CONCLUSION:

the particle distribution test came out with a result where the Cu was greater than 5 which show that the soil is well graded and the percentage of gravel was 32.4, sand was 61.6% and silt was 6%.

The field density test showed the classification of the soil which was ideal for plant growth in the ground because it has a bulk density value which is considered as clay.

All in all, these three tests conducted are very essential to any building construction projects because they figure out the properties of soil.

Important Policies to be followed
1. Student Academic Integrity Policy*:
 MEC upholds the spirit of academic integrity in all forms of academic work and any form of
violation of academic integrity shall invite severe penalty. Any benefit obtained by indulging
in the act of violation of academic integrity shall be cancelled.
 MEC also reserves the right to notify the appropriate law enforcement authorities of any
unlawful activity and to cooperate thereafter in any investigation of such activity.
 Faculty can conduct a viva to investigate and ascertain that the work submitted is student’s
own work as per the guidelines for the same. A student can be given a maximum of 2
chances to attend the viva in such cases. It is expected that the student attends the viva
during the first chance itself unless due to extenuating circumstances. If the student does
not attend the viva in spite of being given 2 chances and fails to submit valid reasons,
he/she will be awarded a fail in the module and this shall be counted as a case of academic
integrity violation.
All cases of violation of academic integrity on the part of the student shall fall under any of the below
mentioned categories:
1. Plagiarism
2. Malpractice
3. Ghost Writing
4. Collusion
5. Other cases
If the student fails a module and has a proven case of academic integrity violation in this module,
the student is required to re-register the module. This is applicable to first and second offence of
academic integrity violation of plagiarism type

a. If a student is caught first time in an act of academic integrity violation during
his/her course of study in any assignment other than project work and if the type
of violation is plagiarism, then the student will be allowed to re-submit the
assignment once as per the period allowed for re submission However, a penalty
of deduction of 25% of the marks obtained for the resubmitted work will be
imposed.
b. Period of re-submission: The student will have to re-submit the work within one
week (5 working days) from the date he or she is advised to re-submit.
c. Re-submission of the work beyond the allowed period of resubmission will not be
accepted and the assessment will be awarded a zero mark.
d. If the re-submitted work (within the allowed period of resubmission) is also found
to be plagiarized, then that assessment component will be awarded a zero mark.
It shall also contribute to the total count of academic integrity violation for that
student.
e. If plagiarism is detected in UG Project work (Project 1, Project Planning and Project
Design and Implementation), the above clauses do not apply, and the work will be
summarily rejected. In these cases the student will be awarded a fail (F) grade and
is required to reregister the module.

the module.
1.2. Second Offence of Academic Integrity Violation:
1.2.1. Plagiarism
a. If any student is caught second time in an act of academic integrity violation during
his/her course of study and if the type of violation is plagiarism, then the student
will not be allowed to resubmit the work, and s/he will directly be awarded zero
for the work in which plagiarism is detected.

assessment component irrespective of coursework or end semester and if the type
of violation is Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion, then the student shall fail the
module.
b. The student shall also receive a warning of suspension in such cases.
1.3. Third Offence of Academic Integrity Violation:
a. If a student is caught a third time in an act of academic integrity violation for an
assessment component irrespective of coursework or end semester then the student
shall fail the module and also shall be suspended for one semester from the College,
once the academic integrity violation case is confirmed by Institutional Assessment
Review Committee.
b. The student shall be suspended for the immediate subsequent semester and can
register for modules only after having served the suspension period fully. This is also
applicable for semesters offered in block mode.
c. During the suspension period, the student shall have to mandatorily complete a course
on academic integrity/writing before s/he can register for any modules.
d. During the period of suspension, the student shall be allowed to attempt
supplementary examinations if s/he is eligible for the same. S/he shall also be allowed
access to all college facilities permitted for a regular student except for registering the
modules.
1.4. Fourth Offence of Academic Integrity Violation:

and premises shall cease to exist. The documents shall be released only after getting
the NOC (No Objection Certificate) from Registration Office.
c. `On termination, the student shall not be refunded any fees paid for the academic
semester in which academic integrity violation was observed.
1.5. Other cases
If a student commits an act of academic integrity violation as per the definition of “other
cases” mentioned in the previous section or of a different nature, student’s case shall be
forwarded to an Institutional Assessment Review Committee, Chaired by the Associate
Dean, Academic Affairs. The committee shall investigate the case by means of a viva and/or
a hearing of the parties concerned if required and shall take appropriate decision. The
penalty that can be granted to a proven case of academic integrity violation which falls in
this category of “other cases” can be a warning/component zero/ module
fail/suspension/expulsion depending on the nature and gravity of the offence.
1.6. Types/Variations of cases of Plagiarism and associated actions
Geotechnology 1 (CIVL 0009.1) – Fall- 2020 – CW (Assignment 1) – A & B – QP
MEC_AMO_TEM_035_02 Page 13 of 21
Type 1: In case plagiarism is detected in any component or part submission (submitted at
different times) of one assessment (assignment), the deduction in marks will be applicable
for the whole assessment (assignment), even if only the component or part submission alone
needs to be resubmitted.
Type 2: In case plagiarism is detected in a group assessment, all students of the group will be
considered as having committed an act of plagiarism irrespective of whether plagiarism is on
account of the act of all or a few or only one member. The policy will then be applied to all
students.
If some students in the group are eligible to re-submit (first offence) and others are not
eligible, only eligible students will be allowed to re-submit within a period of one week and
the penalty will be applied as per the policy for each student according to his / her history of
violations.
Type 3: Combination of Type 1 and Type 2: In case plagiarism is detected in any component
or part submission (submitted at different times) of a group assessment (assignment), the
deduction in marks will be applicable for the whole assessment (assignment), even if only the
component or part submission alone needs to be resubmitted. All students of the group
would be considered as having committed an act of plagiarism irrespective of whether
plagiarism is on account of the act of all or a few or only one member. The policy will then be
applied to all the students of the group.
If some students in the group are eligible to re-submit (first offence) and others are not
eligible, only eligible students will be allowed to re-submit within a period of one week and
the penalty will be applied as per the policy for each student according to his / her history of
violation.
Type 4: Variation of Type 1 and Type 2: In cases where the assessment consists of
components or part submissions that could be a group assessment component (e.g. group
assignment) and an individual assessment component (e.g. individual reflection), the
following will be applicable: a. If plagiarism is detected in the group assessment component, all students of the group will
be considered as having committed an act of plagiarism, irrespective of whether plagiarism
is on account of the act of all or a few or only one member. The policy will then be applied to
all students of the group. In such cases the group assessment component will be resubmitted.
If some students in the group are eligible to re-submit (first offence) and others are not
eligible, only eligible students will be allowed to re-submit within a period of one week and
the penalty will be applied for each student according to his / her history of violation. b. If plagiarism is detected in the individual assessment component, the individual assessment
component will be resubmitted – if the student is eligible for resubmission-. The policy will
then be applied to that student alone.
Geotechnology 1 (CIVL 0009.1) – Fall- 2020 – CW (Assignment 1) – A & B – QP
MEC_AMO_TEM_035_02 Page 14 of 21 c. In both cases (a) and/or (b), the deduction in marks will be applicable for the whole
assessment (assignment).
1.7. Types/Variation of Cases of Multiple Offences
If student is caught with multiple violations of same or different nature in different modules
of the same semester, they will be considered as one offence and student will be penalized
for each violation according to the type of the offence.
If student is caught with multiple violations of same or different nature in the same module
of the same semester, then they will be considered as different offences and each will
contribute to the overall count of AIV. The student then shall be penalized for each violation
according to the count and type of each offence.
* For further details Refer to MEC Student Academic Integrity Policy in Student Handbook.
2. Late Submission Regulations:
It is the students’ responsibility to check all relevant timelines related to assessments.
As per the Assessment Policy at MEC, late submissions are allowed for one week (5 working days)
for all UG modules with a penalty. In such cases, a deduction of 5% of the marks obtained for the
submitted work shall be imposed for each working day following the last date of submission
till the date of actual submission. Assessment documents submitted beyond a period of one
week (5 working days) after the last date of submission will not be accepted and will be awarded
a zero for that assessment. In cases where the submission has been delayed due to extenuating
circumstances, the student may be permitted to submit the work without imposing the late
submission policy stated above. The extended period of submission will be one week from the
original last date of submission. In such cases, the student is expected to submit the supporting
certificates on or before the original last date of submission of the assessment and the decision
of extension rests with faculty responsible for the assessment .The late submission policy shall be
applied if the student fails to submit the work within one week of the original last date of
submission.
Students may contact their teachers for clarification on specific details of the submission time if
required.
3. Research Ethics and Biosafety Policy
To protect and respect the rights, dignity, health, safety, and privacy of research subjects involved
