Sol. According to IS. Code stress strain curve is parabola up to 0.002 then straight line
Up to failure.
Sol. The moisture content of the soil, after free drainage has removed most of the gravity water, is called field capacity.
Plastering is measured in terms of m². If,
(a) opening area < 0.5 m² (No deduction is applied)
(b) opening area is between 0.5 m² – 3m², then (single side deduction is applied)
(c) opening area > 3 m², then (double side deduction is applied)
Sol. cadastral surveying is used to determine additional details such as boundaries of fields & also used for calculating the Area of Land.
Sol. A self-cleansing velocity may be defined as that velocity at which the solid particles will remain in suspension, without settling at the bottom of the sewer.
Sol. Nominal mix for different grade of concrete as below.
|Concrete Grade||Mix ratio|
Sol. Karl terzaghi is father of soil mechanics. His first book on soil mechanics is erbdomechanics published in 1925.
Sol. fish plate is in contact with rail at fishing plane.
Sol. → minimum pitch of rivet = 2.5d
→ maximum pitch for compression = (12t,200)_minimum
→ maximum pitch for tension = (16t,200)_minimum
