(b) (2π^2 EI)/L^2
(c) (π^2 EI)/L^2

Q5. For a circular sewer running partially full, the proportionate wetted partially full, the proportionate wetted perimeter is given by:
Q6. In plate girders vertical stiffeners are required when the ratio of clear depth of web (d) to web thickness (t)
Q7. Calculate the value of modulus of rigidity (N/mm²) if the Poisson’s ratio is 0.25 and modulus of elasticity for the material is 200 N/mm²
Q8. If the distance between two-point A and B is 1 km, the combined correction for curvature and refraction will be
(a) 0.6730 m
Q9. The development length in compression for a 20 mm diameter deformed bar of grade Fe 415 embedded in concrete of grade M 25 whose design bond stress is 1.40 N/mm², is
(a) 1489 mm
(b) 1289 mm
(c) 806 mm
(d) 645 mm
Q10. If the porosity of a soil sample is 40%, void ratio for this sample is
(d) None of these
Sol. Deviation angle = N = 3 + 5= 8% = 0.08
Assuming L > S
L = (NS^2)/4.4=(0.08×(130)^2)/4.4
= 307.2 m ≃ 307 m
Sol. Sugar is used as retarder in concrete. It increases in setting time by about 4 hr.
Critical load = π²EI/(L_eff ²)
Sol. 3 to 5% of total cost is added in the form of contingencies to allow for petty contingent, changes in design and changes in rates.
Sol. For a circular sewer running partially full, the proportionate wetted perimeter is given by –
p = proportionate welted perimeter
P= wetted perimeter
α= central angle
Sol. In plate girders, vertical stiffeners are required when the ratio of clear depth of web (d) to web thickness is greater than 85. its normal distance kept between 0.33 d to 1.5d.
Sol. Given; E = 200 N/mm², G = ?
μ = 0.25
we know that,
Sol. Combined correction due to curvature & Refraction (Cc) = 0.0673 d^2
Sol. According to IS 456 : 2000
The development length (L_d ) = (ϕσ_st)/(4τ_bd )
→ For deformed bars τ_bd shall be increases by 60%.
→ for bars in compression τ_bd increased by 25%
▭(L_d= 645 mm)
Sol. Given, Porosity (n) = 40% = 0.4
Void ratio (e) = ?
