Cohensionless soil means no friction between soil particles so easy to driven then why efficiency less than 100%.

Cohesionless soil:

LOOSE SAND > 100%

ALEENA C said:   6 years ago
In cohesion, less soil efficiency increases due to increase in base area. While in cohesive soil surface area decreases as we consider pile in a group. Is that the reason for this?

Dolly said:   6 years ago
Answer is A. The efficiency of pile group is always less than 1.
