SOLUTION

 

S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. compaction of concrete helps in removal of air voids and increase the density and strength of concrete.

 

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol. Zinc or aluminum powders are used as air entraining agents. Air entraining agents increase the workability of concrete.

 

S3. Ans.(a)

Sol. Poisson’s ratio of concrete is 0.15. It increase with increase in the richer mix.

 

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. In concrete, while hand mixing the excess cement to be added is 10%.

 

S5. Ans.(c)

Sol. The process of applying cement mortar under pressure through a nozzle is called Guniting . The machine which is used for guniting is called cement gun. It apply a pressure of 2.5 kg/cm² – 3.5 kg/cm² through nozzle.

 

S6. Ans.(d)

Sol.

 

S7. Ans.(c)

Sol. The tie bars in concrete pavement are provided in Longitudinal joints.

 

S8. Ans.(b)

Sol. Sugar when added to cement will act as a retarder.

 

S9. Ans.(a)

Sol. Shrinkage in concrete increases its bond strength.

 

S10. Ans. (a)

Sol. Green concrete may be made by adding Chromium oxide.
