SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. Double reinforced beam provided –

Depth of the beam restricted

Increasing moment carrying capacity.

Safety against reversal of stress.

Reduce deflection of beam.

S2. Ans.(d)

Sol. Shearing strength of double rivet double cover butt joint.

P_S=2×(πd_O^2)/4×σ_SP×2

P_S=4×(πd_O^2)/4×σ_SP

▭(P_S=4×Strength of one rivet in single shear)

S3. Ans.(d)

Sol. Water content =(weight of water)/(weight of solids )×100=9/10×100%

Void ratio = V_V/V_s =10/(28/2.7)=(10 × 2.7)/28

Degree of saturation =V_w/V_V =9/10×100

Porosity = V_V/V=10/(28/2.7+10)=(10 × 2.7)/(28 + 10 × 2.7) Thus 1, 2, and 4 are correct

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol. efficiency of a rivet joint per pitch length =

(P-d)/P×100

Minimum pitch (P) = 2.5d

Efficiency (η) = (2.5d-d)/2.5d

=1.5/2.5×100

=60%

S5. Ans.(b)

Sol. According to IS800: 2007 recommendation.

→ minimum value of edge distance = 1.7 × diameter of hole

[In case of sheared or hand flamed out edges]

→ minimum edge and end distance shaft not be less than = 1.5 × diameter of hole

[In case of rolled machine flames (cut, sawn and planed edges]

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol. air permeability test of cement is conducted to find the fineness of cement. It measures surface area.

S7. Ans.(c)

S8. Ans.(c)

Sol. Rate of flow is the difference in value of stream function at point A and B.

Q=|Ψ_A-Ψ_B |

Ψ_A=2×(3)^2×0+(3+1)×(0)^2=0

Ψ_B=2×(0)^2×2+(0+1)×(2)^2=4

Q=|0-4|=4 unit

S9. Ans.(b)

Sol.

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. Specific speed is given by –

Na=(N√P)/H^(5\/4)

Na=(100×√(10^4 ))/(40)^(5\/4)

Na= =99.40≈100
