SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(b)

Sol. Francis turbine is inward flow radial reaction turbine.

S2. Ans.(d)

Sol. in a reaction turbine, there is only partial conversion of available heat to velocity head before entry to runner. Thus at entrance to reaction turbine the fluid will have both pressure energy as well as kinetic energy.

S3. Ans.(d)

Sol. Kaplan turbine has adjustable runner blade due to that it has high part load efficiency.

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. Weber number is the ratio of intertie force to surface tension.

S5. Ans.(b)

Sol. Pelton wheel is the turbine comes in category of inward flow impulse turbine.

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol. maximum actual efficiency.

When

V = 2u

u = 0.5 V

but,

Theoretically maximum efficiency.

▭(u=0.46V)

S7. Ans.(b)

Sol. ▭(Modular Ratio (m)=(Modulas of elasticity of steel(E_s ))/(Modulus of plasticity of concrete(E_c ) ))

E_s=2×10^5 N\/mm^2

E_c=5000 √fck (Acc. To IS 456:2000)

S8. Ans.(a)

Sol. In limit state method.

Partial safety factor for RCC = 1.5

Partial safety factor for steel = 1.15

In working state method.

Partial safety factor for R.C.C. = 3

Partial safety factor for steel = 1.78

S9. Ans.(d)

Sol. ▭(maximum diameter of reinforcement in slab ≯1/8× thickness of slab)

S10. Ans.(c)

Sol. porosity (n) = 1/3

G = 2.5

Critical hydraulic gradient (ic) = ?

e = n/(1-n )=(1\/3)/(2\/3)=0.5

▭(e=0.5)

i_c=(G-1)/(1+e)=(2.5-1)/(1+0.5)=1.5/1.5
