SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(a)

Sol. Muller Breslau principle in structure analysis is used for drawing influence line diagram for any force function such as shear force, bending moment or any reactive force and moment

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. The influence line diagram is the graphical representation for reaction, shear force and bending moment due to moving load. It can be drawn for beams, arches, trusses etc.

S3. Ans.(a)

Sol. Gross diameter of a rivet is the diameter of rivet hole.

In WSM

Nominal diameter (d) Gross diameter (do)

d ≤ 25 mm do = d + 1.5 mm

d > 25 mm do = d +2 mm

In LSM

Nominal diameter (d) Gross diameter (do)

d = 12mm to 14 mm do = d +1mm

d = 16mm to 24 mm do = d + 2 mm

d > 24 mm do = d + 2 mm

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. Effective length of weld is equal to overall length of weld minus twice the size of weld.

▭(L_effective=L_overall-2S )

Where, S = size of weld

S5. Ans.(b)

sol. Peak hour factor is expressed in percentage of AADT; it is used in the design of transportation facilities and major projects.

S6. Ans.(b)

Sol. Peak flood discharge by Reyve’s formula-

Q=CA^(2/3)

A= area in km²

Q= Peak flood discharge (m^3/sec)

C= constant

Reyve’s formula is used for southern India catchments.

S7. Ans.(c)

Sol. Column is a special type of strut may be defined as vertical member subjected to axial compressive load.

S8. Ans. (b)

Sol.

→ Ideal plastic fluid – (Toothpaste)

S9. Ans.(a)

Sol. A stream function is defined only for incompressible flow. In stream function, the partial derivative with respect to any direction will give the velocity component at right angle to that direction.

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. A path line may be defined as the line traced by a single fluid particle as it moves over a period of time, Thus a path line will show the direction of velocity of the same fluid particle at successive instants of time.
