(a) 10
(b) 15
(c) 20
(d) 25

Q3. A gradient of 1° represents a rise or fall of 1m in a horizontal distance of

(b) 44.7 m
(c) 63.3 m
(d) 68.7 m

(a) 800 m
(b) 160 m
(c) 80 m
(d) 70 m

Q5. Which of the following curves can be used to avoid overturning of vehicles on a curve?

(b) Transition
(c) Vertical
(d) Compound

Q6. Highway geometrics are designed for:
(a) 50th percentile speed
(b) 85th percentile speed

S1. Ans.(a)
DFCCIL'21 CE: Daily Practice Quiz. 21-July-2021_30.1
Maximum strain in extreme fibre of concrete
= 0.0035
Maximum strain in tension reinforcement =
= 0.002+ (0.87×415)/(200×10^3 )
= 0.0038

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Nominal mix design used up to M20 Concrete.
→ For M25 onward’s we use design mix.

S3. Ans.(a)

DFCCIL'21 CE: Daily Practice Quiz. 21-July-2021_40.1
Sol. Let horizontal distance = D
Slope = 1°
Rise/fall = 1m

Tan 1° = 1/D
D = 1/(Tan 1° )
= 1/0.017455
D = 57.3 m

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given, SSD = 80 m.
Set back distance(M) = 10m.
Radius (R) = ?
Set back distance (M) = S²/8R (Approx. relation)
10 = (80)^2/8R
R = (80×80)/(10×8)
= 80 m.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Overturning of vehicles on a carve can be avoided by using transition curve. transition curve is provided between straight and circular curve.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Highway Geometric are designed for 98th percentile speed.
