SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(b)

Sol. Area of plot =16 km^2

Area of plot in map = 1 cm²

1 cm² = 16 km²

1 cm = 4 km

Representative fraction (R.F.) = 1cm/(4×100000 cm)

▭(R.F.1/400000)

S2. Ans.(d)

Sol.

S3. Ans.(a)

Sol. Hydrographic survey deals with the large water bodied like river canal, lake, sea etc.

Hydrographic survey is the science of measurement of features of marine construction.

S4. Ans.(a)

Sol. Creep is the property of a specimen undergoes additional deformation with the passage of time under sustained loading within elastic limit. It’s can not be recover hence plastic in nature.

S5. Ans.(a)

Sol. In mohr circle verticle axis represent shear stress & Horizontal axis represent normal stress so the vertical diameter of circle represents maximum shear stress.

S6. Ans.(a)

Sol. In cantilever beam moment generated in the support is maximum because only one support in all beam.

Strain energy U= ∫▒Mx²dx/2EI

S7. Ans.(a)

Sol. Hydrology cycle is movement of water from sea to land and land to sea. It the denoted by equation P=E+R

Where P= Precipitation

E= Evaporation

R = Runoff

S8. 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.

S9. Ans.(c)

Sol. According to Lacey’s theory, the following equation is used for designing of canal-

Silt factor (f) = 1.76 √dmm

Velocity of flow(v)=((Qf^2)/140)^(1/6)

Hydraulic mean radius (R)=5/2 (v^2/f)

Area of canal (A)=Q/V

Wetted perimeter (P)= 4.75 √Q

Side slope (S)=f^(5/3)/(3340 Q^(1/6) )

Scour depth = 1.35(q^2/f)^(1/3) where q=Q/B (discharge per unit width)

S10. Ans.(c)

Sol. Delta (∆) of a crop means total depth of water required by crop in its complete base period.
