Q10. A hyetrograph is graph between.
(a) rainfall intensity vs rainfall volume
(b) rainfall volume vs time
(c) rainfall intensity vs time
(d) rainfall intensity vs area of rainfall


S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. As per IS800:1984 the maximum deflection/span ratio of a steel member should not exceed 1/325

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. grade companion =
(30+R)/R ≯75/R
=(30+50)/50 ≯75/50
=1.6 ≯1.5
Grade compensation = 1.5%
Compensated gradient = 7-1.5

S3. Ans.(a)

S4. Ans.(a)
d=25 cm
D=50 cm.
d/D=1/2⇒sewer is running half full
Design discharge q=Q/2
q=((π/4 D^2 )×1/n R^(2\/3) S^(1\/2 ))/2
=((π/4×〖0.5〗^2 )×1/0.015×(0.5/4)^(2\/3) (0.0036)^(1\/2 ))/2
=0.098125 M^3 \/S
=98.125 l\/sec⁡

S5. Ans.(b)
Normal strain on the plane of max. shear plane =(E_x+E_y)/2

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Aeration is the process of mixing extra air with water which helps in the improvement of chemical and physical characteristics of water.

S7. Ans.(d)
= ▭(E_ce=8944.27 MPa)

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. passive earth pressure should be maximum and active earth pressure should be minimum.

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. BOD_5 (20°C)=L_0 (1-e^(-kx5) )
(BOD_5)/L_o =1-e^(-5k)
0.68 =1-e^(-5k)

S10. Ans.(b)
