(b) Decreasing the length of the bubble
(c) Increasing the viscosity of liquid
(d) Decreasing the radius of curvature of the tube

S1. Ans.(c)

DFCCIL'21 CE: Daily Practice Quiz. 17-September-2021_40.1

Hight of instrument = 500+2.685
= 502.685 m.
RL of point = 502.685-1.345
= 501.34 m

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Sensitivity of the bubble tube/level tube can be increased by.
(i) Increasing radius of tube
(ii) Increasing length of tube
(iii) Smoothing the inner surface of tube
(iv) Decreasing the viscosity of fluid inside tube
(v) decreasing surface tension of fluid inside tube

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. W = 2000 kg
H = 2m.
S = 0.5 cm.
C = 0.25 cm (for steam hammer)
Q_up=533.33 ton
Q_allowable=Q_up/(f.O.S )
=88.88 ton

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Negative skin friction is a downward drawn acting on a pile due to the downward movement of the surrounding.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Coefficient of compressibility = |∆e/(∆σ ̅ )|
=|0.1/0.5|=0.20 m^2 \/t

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. When %U < 60%
time factor (T_v )=π/4 (%U)^2
T_V=3.14/4 (0.50)^2
