Solutions

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Crushing Test → Gives crushing strength
Impact Test → Gives Toughness
Los Angeles Test → Gives Abrasion resistance or hardness.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Alkalinity in water is expressed as mg/l in terms of calcium carbonate.
Major ions → CO_3^(-2),HCO_3^-,OH^-
Minor ions → HS^-,H_2 PO_4^-,HPO_4^(-2) etc.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. When %U < 60%
time factor (T_v )=π/4 (%U)^2
T_V=3.14/4 (0.50)^2
▭(T_v=0.19625)
▭(T_v≈0.2)

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Coefficient of thermal expansion (α) for steel is 12×10^(-6)/°c
Coefficient of thermal expansion for Concrete is 6×10^(-6)/°c to 12×10^(-6)/°c

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Bolts are more suitable to carry Axial tension.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol.
– The patches of whitish crystal were found on the exposed surface is due to efflorescence.
– The chipping and spalling of bricks are due to sulphate attack.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Portland – Pozzolana cement (PPC) is used in lining of deep tube wells. It is manufactured by grinding OPC and Pozzolana (containing fly ash 10 to 25% by mass). It is also used in mass concreting and places of high temperature.

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol.

Length of curve =(0.8-(-0.6))/0.1 ×30
▭(L=420m.)

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol.
→ Maximum value of centrifugal ratio for roads = 1/4
→ Maximum value of centrifugal ratio for railways = 1/8
So, ratio between these two = (1/4)/(1/8)
= (2 : 1)

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given, conjugate depths y_1=0.4 m.
y_2=1.4 m.
E_L= ?
E_L=(y_2-y_1 )^3/(4y_1 y_2 )
=(1.4-0.4)^3/(4×1.4×0.4)
▭(E_L=0.446≈0.45m)
