Hi,

I have an equation which is shown below, which says qc (cone resistance) = .....

Now i need to calculate the effective angle of internal friction from the below formula. So i need to make a new formula

which starts with φ'= ......

q

And i have no idea what is this

I am stuck with this value.

I cannot use any other formula to calculate φ'. It is that

Does anyone know how to reverse the equation so that i can calculate effective angle of internal friction?

The qc value and effective stress are given.

## RE: Hi, I have an equation which is sh

I have tried to simplify this equation and now i am getting like

Let θ be φ' in the above equation and x is a constant.

Now i need to solve for θ in terms of x.

Does anyone know how to do it?

## RE: Hi, I have an equation which is sh

It seems odd that an equation in general use for this application wouldn't already have a symbolic solution or approximation.

TTFN (ta ta for now)

I can do absolutely anything. I'm an expert! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKorP55Aqvg

qc= 1.3 × exp[2π tanØ] × tan2[(45 + Ø/2] × σv0)

σv0 = ɣ'z (overburden pressure) and q'c are both "effective" stresses and you must know them..

You can simplfy the equation (σv0)/(1.3*σv0)= exp[2π tanØ] × tan2[(45 + Ø/2]

Now, the solve the implicit function with numerical analysis.. One of the methods, trial ,..

In your final formula, take natural log of both sides ln x = 2π tanØ + 2ln ( π/4+ Ø/2)

tanØ = (ln x-2ln ( π/4+ Ø/2))/( 2π ) now start with trial Ø=30 degr but in radians (π /6) you will get another Ø

and try with new Ø.. The formula will converge after 4-5 trials..

Or you may look to the Figure 3-22 in the famous book Foundation Analysis and Design Joseph E. Bowles page 180.

I have attached the graph..

## RE: Hi, I have an equation which is sh

But in the above comment, when we take log on both sides, tan2 is missing from your equation.

And also in the attached graph, according to De Beer, the equation is used on the condition that : when Ø´ is greater than Ø(provided). Inorder to find out this Ø´ i have use the below equation.

And for calculating the effective friction angle, i need to convert the above formula into Ø´= ....

Where the values of Ø , Ckd(=qc) and σv0 will be provided.

## RE: Hi, I have an equation which is sh

Typing mistakes...yes tan**2 is forgotten...

qc= 1.3 × exp[2π tanØ] × tan2[(45 + Ø/2] × σv0)

qc/(1.3σv0 ) = exp[2π tanØ] × tan2[(45 + Ø/2]

C= exp[2π tanØ] × tan2[(45 + Ø/2]

Now take the natural log of both sides,

ln C= 2π tanØ + 2*ln tan [(45 + Ø/2] another way, define function Ω = 2π tanØ + 2*ln tan [(45 + Ø/2] -Ln C

The value of Ø which the function Ω = 0 will be the answer..

Regarding your quote: Vb" = Ckd /Pb where Pb = y'z (overburden pressure) and Ckd (cone resistance) are both "effective" stresses ..

## RE: Hi, I have an equation which is sh

But i am sorry beacuse still i couldnt get an equation for Ø

When Ω = 0 ,

0= 2π tanØ + 2tan [(45 + Ø/2] - LnC

In this above equation , Suppose C= 20, How to get a value for Ø

I need to get the Ø value in terms of C. There are still two Ø terms in this equation.

I cannot go for derivation again, because if derivate again, this C will become zero.

I need to calculate the values of Ø for different values of C.

Thank you so much.

## RE: Hi, I have an equation which is sh

C is a constant used for simplification of the formula...In this case , C=qc/(1.3σv0 )..You must know the σv0 (overburden pressure) and qc (cone resistance) both effective stress...

0= 2π tanØ + 2tan [(45 + Ø/2] - LnC

This nonlinear eq. can be solved with iterative methods. For example, Bisection method,

Give arbitrary value to Ø .. Consider two points, (a, f (a)), and (b, f (b)) which the function having (+ and - ) opposite signs .Thus, we know that there is a root of f in the interval (a, b). Let c be the midpoint of the interval [a, b], so that c = (a+b)/2, and evaluate f (c). One of the following is true: Either f (c) = 0, f (a) and

f (c) have opposite signs, or f (c) and f (b) have opposite signs. Now try d=(a+c)/2 or d=(b+c)/2 ..a or b will be decided so that they must opposite sign with c...After a few iteration , the diffrence will be negligible and you will find Ø .

## RE: Hi, I have an equation which is sh

I will try this method
