The angle of internal friction of clays, is usually
Answer: Option B
No answer description available for this question.

|The answer must be 0 to 5.|
|Loben said: (Sep 6, 2016)|
|5° - 20° is correct.|
|Archana Johari said: (Mar 12, 2017)|
|Yes, as far as I know clay has a least angle of internal friction compare to all soils. So it must be 0-5.|
|Raju Raut said: (Mar 13, 2017)|
|As angle of internal friction of clay is vary from 18 minimum and maximum 28 it is correct answer is B.|
|Parveen said: (Apr 24, 2017)|
|Yes, it's 18 to 28.|
|Gokulnath said: (Aug 7, 2017)|
|Option C correct.
If the clays are partial saturated and dry then it is said to be the angle of angle of internal friction >0, that is 20-28'.
For fully sat and pure clay angle of internal friction is 0.

|Clays are cohesive soils and their particle size is in the range of microns, they have very less angle of internal friction. Ideally it should be 0 or in the range of 0-5. Answer is A.|
|Biswajit P said: (Feb 11, 2018)|
|Approximate maximum value of the angle of internal friction.
Sand 30° to 40°.
|Anuj said: (Mar 5, 2018)|
|It is 0-5.|
|Nikhil said: (Mar 16, 2018)|
|Angle of internal friction:
Loose sand 30-35°.
Medium sand 40°.
Dense sand 35-45°.
Gravel with some sand 34-48°.
|Priya said: (Mar 20, 2018)|
|Theoretically, a pure clay would have a value of 0° and Π would rise with increasing sand content and density to approximately 40° for a compact sandy loam soil. Loose sands range between 25 to 30°. As pure clays are rarely found in topsoils the typical value for a \'clay\'
soil would be in the range 5 to 10°
|Priyanka said: (Aug 19, 2019)|
|For Clay, the range is 5° - 10°.|
|Naveen Ceg said: (Jan 20, 2020)|
|5° - 10° is correct.|
|Emanuel said: (Sep 27, 2021)|
|Theoretically angle of internal friction for clay is 0°.|
