Sol. The initial Setting time of fresh concrete should not be less than 30min. and the final setting time is 10 hours.
Sol. In water distribution system, the balancing storage can be worked out by mass curve.
Sol. Webster’s method is used for determining optimum signal cycle length (C_O) and it is given by according to webster’s method–
L = Total lost time in a cycle length
Y = sum of critical flow rate for all phases
Sol. The stress which can be withstand for some infinite number of cycles without failure is called endurance limit. Endurance limit magnitude less then yield strength.
Sol. ▭(Modular Ratio (m)=(Modulas of elasticity of steel(E_s ))/(Modulus of plasticity of concrete(E_c ) ))
E_c=5000 √fck (Acc. To IS 456:2000)
Sol. Order of booking dimension is length, breadth and height.
S8. Ans. (d)
Sol. According to Archimedes Principle –
Line of action of buoyant force (centre of buoyancy) acts through the centroid of the displaced volume of the fluid.
Sol. Kharif crops sown in June and harvested in September and October. The major kharif crops are bajra, maize, cotton, sugarcane, paddy, jowar, rice, pulses, and ground-nut etc.
Sol. minimum pitch of rivets should be 2.5 times the nominal diameter or rivet i.e. 2.5d.
d = nominal diameter of rivet.
