(b) endurance limit
(c) proportional limit
(d) tolerance limit

(a) 3 × 10^(-7) m/s
(b) 6 × 10^(-7) m/s
(c) 12 × 10^(-7) m/s
(d) 18 × 10^(-7) m/s

(a) 105 Gpa
(b) 83 Gpa

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. The load carrying capacity of a helically reinforced column is 5% more than tied column. In a circular column, the helical reinforcement is generally provided as transverse reinforcement.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Aerobic conditions are maintained in the upper portions of the facultative pond by oxygen generated by algae and to lesser extent by penetration of atmospheric oxygen. Mixing by wind action and penetration by sunlight may extend the aerobic area downward.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Code suggests the use of any of the following methods for steel structures:
→ Elastic analysis
→ Plastic analysis
→ Dynamic analysis
→ Advanced analysis.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Sub classification of sedimentary rocks
(1) Mechanical→ made from mechanical weathering
(2) Chemical → made from chemical weathering.
(3) Organic rocks.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. The value of coefficient of discharge is depends upon friction at the orifice surface. For increasing the value of coefficient of discharge or decreasing the loss we can sharp the edges of orifice so line of contact is only in picture for less friction.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. There are some following tests are conducted on the coarse aggregates–
(i) Bitumen Adhesion test
(ii) Abrasion test
(iii) Crushing test
(iv) Impact test

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. In water distribution system, the balancing storage can be worked out by mass curve.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. The stress which can be withstand for some infinite number of cycles without failure is called endurance limit. Endurance limit magnitude less then yield strength.

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. discharge velocity (V) = 6 × 10^(-7) m/s
Void ratio (e) = 0.5
Porosity (n) = e/(1+e)
= 0.5/(1+0.5)
= 0.5/1.5
Seepage velocity (V_s ) = V/n
V_s=18.18× 10^(-7) m/sec

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given, Elastic modulus (E) = 210 GPa
Poison ratio (μ) = 0.27
Modulus of rigidity (G) = ?
E = 2G(1+μ)
G =E/2(1+μ)
▭(G=82.67 GPa≈83 GPa)
