Sol. Static cone penetration test is usually conducted when structure is founded on pile foundation.
Sol. Deep beam is always design for bending moment.
→ Beam said to be deep beam. If
(Effective span)/(Overall depth)<2 [simply supported]
(Effective span)/(Overall depth)<2.5 [Continouus beam]
Sol. Maximum shear strain occurs on 45° with the principal planes.
Sol. A phreatic line is defined as the line within dam section below which there are positive hydrostatic pressure.
Sol. Surface tension – It is the property of fluid which enables that it will resist external tensile stress because of cohesive forces of molecules of a fluid.
Sol. The number of bricks (conventional size) requires for one square meter of brick on edge soling is 54.
Sol. A detritus tanks is provided in the primary treatment of sewage to remove grit and inorganic suspended solids.
Sol. Wrinkling → These are the hair line cracks on small area of painted surface.
Sol. Agonic line – line connecting 0° declination angle
Isogonic line – line connecting same declination angle.
Isoclinic line – line connecting same angle of dip
Aclinic line – line connecting 0° dip angle.
Sol. Lag distance is the distance travelled by a moving vehicle during perception and breaker action time.
