(b) Capillary fringe reaches the root zone of plants
(c) Gravity drainage has ceased
(d) The permanent wilting point is reached
Q6. The length of sedimentation tank should be at least ______ the breadth of the tank.
(a) One time
(b) four times
(c) Two times
(d) three times

(a) 1676 mm
(b) 1000 mm
(c) 762 cm
(d) 1676 cm

(a) 0.05 tonne
(b) 0.06 tonne
(c) 0.08 tonne
(d) 0.01 tonne
Sol. Decreasing order of effectiveness of these methods of preservation is →
Pressure impregnation > Dipping > Brushing or spraying.
– In pressure impregnation method, the preservative is injected into timber under pressure. This method is most effective among all.
– In dipping method, the timber is dipped into preservative solution for a short period of time. This method is effective than brushing or spraying.
Sol. We know-▭(T_v=(C_v t)/d^2 )
∴ ▭(C_v=(T_v d^2)/t)
C_v→Coefficient of conslidation
d→ drainage path
▭(Df/B≤1) As per Terzaghi
→ In shallow foundation depth of embedment less than its width.
→ load transfer due to base resistance.
Sol. Concentration of organic solid in water not greater that 200 mg/l
Inorganic → 3000 mg/l
Sulphate → 400 mg/l
Chloride → 2000 mg/l (PCC) and 500 mg/l (RCC)
Suspended matter → 2000 mg/l
Sol. A given piece of land is said to be water logged when
Capillary fringe reaches the root zone of plants.
Due to rise of water table up to ground level.
Area is full of salinity.
Sol. The length of sedimentation tank should be at least four times the breadth of the tank. The breadth of sedimentation tank should be 10 to 12 m and depth should be 3 to 4.5 m.
Sol. The process of adding the cement in order to improve the quality of mortar is known as gauging. It results in more economical, denser and stronger lime mortar is called as gauged mortar. The proportion of cement to lime by volume is about 1:6 to 1:8.
Sol. There is no material whose Poisson’s ratio is more than unity because maximum value of Poisson’s ratio for any material is equal or less than to 0.5.
Sol. Bending equation
▭(R α E)
Sol. Plane table is always placed in every station parallel to the position it occupied at the first station is known as parallelism.
|1.676 m. or 1676 mm
1.435 m. or 1435 mm
1.000 m. or 1000 mm
0.762 m. or 762 mm
0.610 m. or 610 mm
Sol. Given, Degree (D°) = 4°
Total weight of Train (W) = 50 Tonnes
The curvature resistance for BG = 0.0004 WD°
= 0.0004 × 50 × 4
= 0.08 Torne
