##### Reference no: EM13317003

Two simply supported beams are coupled so their centers have equal deflections. The upper beam has length L1 and lower beam has length L2. Determine the deflection of the center of the beams.

#### What will be the porosity of the mixture

You are furnished with three sizes of particles. One is gravel with porosity of 0.32, the second is a coarse grained sand with porosity of 0.37, and the third is a fine graine

#### Show why the overall code is uniquely decodable

By considering a string of 1020 binary symbols into the encoder, show that the number of occurrences of b per input symbol is, with very high probability, very close to 0.1.

#### Determine void ratio-porosity and moisture content of soil

A container containing saturated soils weighs 113.27 g before being placed in an oven and 100.06 g after drying remains in the same container overnight. The empty container

#### Determine the factor of safety with respect to shear failure

A footing 3m X 3m carries a pressure of 500 kN/ m2 at a depth of 1m in a sand substrate. The saturated unit weight of the sand is 20 kN/ m3 and the unit weight above the water

#### What engineering parameter must the joint surfaces possess
