What is zero air void line in soil?

Hi devilart, This method is used to compute the vertical and horizontal stresses of any shape ,irregular geometry below any point outside or inside The chart as shown in the above figure essentially consists of n no. of radial lines and m no. of concentric circles.

Hi devilart, This method is used to compute the vertical and horizontal stresses of any shape ,irregular geometry below any point outside or inside

The chart as shown in the above figure essentially consists of n no. of radial lines and m no. of concentric circles.

To find out vertical stress at any point below or outside the loaded area, Plan of the loaded area is drawn such that depth Z at which stress is being computed equals the length AB as shown on

Further, the plan is placed over influence chart such that the point below which stress is required coincides with the center of chart Then count the number of influence area (N) covered by the plan

The zero Air Void line is obtained when there is no presence of the air in the pores of a soil mass and totally filled with the water and soil mass get saturated.

The zero Air Void line is obtained when there is no presence of the air in the pores of a soil mass and totally filled with the water and soil mass get saturated. It is determined by the compaction test of a soil. Draw the graph between Dry Density VS water content, calculate the dry density from the compaction test results, and Zero Air void line is drawn on the graph.
