Sol. In ordinary residential and public buildings, the damp proof course generally provides at plinth level and it is measured in m². The thickness of damp proof course varies from 2cm to 4cm and the average thickness is taken as 2.5cm.
Sol. true length of survey line (L) = 500 m.
Measured length of the line (L’) = 502 m.
True or designated length of the chain (l) = 20 m.
Actual/ incorrect length of chain (l’) =?
▭(γ_d=20 kN\/m^3 )
Sol. A venturi meter is a device which is used for measuring the rate of flow or discharge through a pipe.
Sol. Given, length of wheel base (l) = 5.5 m
Radius (R) = 30 m.
Off tracking = ?
Off Tracting =l^2/2R
Sol. The standard turbidity is produced by one mg. of silica as silicon dioxide (SiO_2 ) is added to 1l. of pure water to make the standard turbid solution is called one Jackson turbidity unit (JTU)
Sol. In case of pure bending, there will be no shear force in the member and the beam bend into an arc of a circle.
▭(M/I=E/R) (Consider equation of bending)
Sol. In post tension system, the compressive stress is transfer in concrete after casting of concrete with the help of jack or couplers at the ends. This system is economically for large spans and is adopted now a days.
Sol. In working stress method –
