Solutions

S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. An indeterminate building frame is statically indeterminate to third degree hence to make it determinate we assume hinges at both mid – height of column and midspan of beams.

S2. Ans.(a)

Sol. C = 30 cm/sec²

= 0.30 m/sec²

R = 200 m.

V = 14 m/sec.

Length of transition curve (L) = V^3/(C.R)

= (14)^3/(0.3×200)

= 45.7 m.

= 46 m.

S3. Ans.(a)

Sol. Effective size (D_10 ) = 0.05 cm.

Co-efficient of permeability (k) =?

According to Hazen eq^n –

K = 100 (D_10 )^2

K = 100 × (0.05) ²

K = 0.25 cm/sec

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. flange width for isolated T beam

[lo/(lo/b+4)+bw]

For monolithic T-beam

[lo/6+bw+6df]

S5. Ans.(c)

Sol. AS per IS 883:1994, the minimum width of beam or any flexural member shall not be less than l/50 or 50 mm of the span whichever is greater. The depth of beam of any flexural member shall not be taken more than 3 times of its width.

S6. Ans.(d)

Sol. Whole circle bearing = 150°

Reduced bearing =?

Reduced bearing = S30° E

S7. Ans.(a)

Sol. Given bulk modulus (K) = Shear modulus (G)

Now,

Poisson’s ratio (μ)=(3K-2G)/(6K+2G)=(3-2)/(6+2)=1/8=0.125

S8. Ans.(c)

Sol. The No. of Independent variable required to locate the position of a system is known as degree of freedom. In case of simple pendulum there are two inputs are required for desired movement. So, degree of freedom for simple pendulum is 2.

S9. Ans.(b)

Sol. If water table permanently remaining of or below the depth of foundation the water table correction factor equal to one.

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. Slope at C.G.I sheet = 15 cm = 0.15m.

Width of sheet = 0.8 m

Total length = = 10.3 m.

Number of sheets =10.3/(0.8+0.15)

=10.84≈11 sheet
