S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. When HYSD bars are used in place of mild steel bars bond stress increased by 60% and bars in compression bond stress increased by 25%.

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. In case of gases the cohesion forces and small and molecular momentum transfer predominates with increase in temperature molecular momentum transfer increases and hence kinematic viscosity increase.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. dynamic viscosity (µ) = 0.5 poise
= 0.5 Ns/m^2
G = 0.5
ρ = 0.5 × 1000 = 500 kg/m^3
Kinematic viscosity (V) = µ/ρ
= 0.5/500
= 10^(–3) m^2/sec
= 10 cm^2/sec = 10 stokes

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. τ = k(du/dy)^n
If n > 1 then dilatants fluid.
If n < 1 then pseudo plastic fluid.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. ▭(P=R+E+ΔS)
P = Precipitation
E = Evapotranspiration
ΔS = Change in storage

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. Direct runoff is that part of runoff which enters the stream immediately after the precipitation. It includes surface runoff; prompt interflow and precipitation of the channel.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. For most economical trapezoidal section:

  1. Hydraulic mean radius equals half the depth of flow
  2. Top width equal to sum of side of side slope.
  3. A circle of radius of depth of flow can be inscribed inside it.

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. Leaching is the process in which land is flooded with adequate depth of water. The alkali salts present in soil, get dissolved with this water which percolate down to join the water table or are drained away by sub surface drains.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. Survey which are carried out to depict mountains, rivers, water bodies, wooded areas other cultural details are known as topographical survey.

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. sag correct = (L (w〖L)〗^2)/(24 P_m^2 )
L → length
P → Pull at the time of measurement
w → weight of tape
sag correction is always subtractive.
