(a) (M + 2) to (M + 7)

(b) (M + 1)

(c) (M)

(d) (M – 2)

Solutions

S1. Ans. (a)

Sol. Maximum Bending Stress (σ_max)=32M/(πD^3 )

Maximum Shear Stress (τ_max)=16T/(πD^3 )

σ_max= τ_max (as per question)

32M/(πD^3 )= 16T/(πD^3 )

M = T/2

S2. Ans.(d)

Sol. Total Precipitation (P) = Σ Intensity × duration

Total precipitation (P) = (3.5+4.2+2.9)×1 hr

= 10.6 cm.

Run off (R) = 3 cm.

ϕ=index=(P-R)/t

=(10.6-3)/3

▭(ϕ-index=2.533)

∵ the value of ϕ- index is smaller than all the 3 successive hours rainfall intensities.

Hence, ϕ-index= 2.533 cm\/hr

S3. Ans.(b)

Sol. Meta centric height is the vertical distance between centroid of the submerged body and the metacenter of the submerged body.

Now,

For ship (time period of oscillation under stability)

▭(T=2π√(k^2/g(GM) ))

GM = metacentric height

k = radius of gyration

∵ T α 1/√GM α 1/(Stability )

If GM is large, then time period of oscillation is small hence oscillation is more comfort of passenger is decreased.

S4. Ans.(d)

Sol.

Grade of steel | Depth of neutral axis () |

Fe 250 | 0.53d |

Fe 415 | 0.48d |

Fe 500 | 0.46d |

S5. Ans.(b)

Sol. m + 3 = 2j → Static Determinate structure

m + 3 > 2j → Static Indeterminate structure

m + 3 < 2j → Unstable structure

S6. Ans.(d)

Sol. The effective length of a column, held in position and restrained in direction at one end and the other end is free, is equal to 2L.

S7. Ans.(c)

Sol. Quick Setting Cement as the name indicates, these types of cements are used where quick setting is needed. The quick setting cement is manufactured by adding a small percentage of aluminum sulphate and then it is finely grinded with cement. The Initial setting time of quick setting cement is 5 minutes and Final setting time is 30 minutes.

S8. Ans.(a)

Sol. Given, Length=30m, h= 1/(√(〖(20)〗^2+1) )×30=1.5m.

Correction for a slope = h^2/2l = 〖1.5〗^2/(2×30) = 0.0375m. =3.75 cm.

S9. Ans.(b)

Sol. Given,

γ_d=16 kN/m^3

γ_w=10 kN/m^3

G = 2.60

e= ?

γ_d=(Gγ_w)/(1+e)=16

16=(2.6×10)/(1+e)

1+e=1.625

e=0.625

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. If M is the length of a rail in meters, then the number of sleepers per rail length generally varies form (m+2) to (M + 7).
