(a) Uncertain
(b) Laminar
(c) Turbulent
(d) Transition

Q3. The kinematic indeterminacy of the plane truss shown in the figure is

Q4. An RC structural member rectangular in cross section of width b and depth D is subjected to a combined action of bending moment M and torsional moment T. The longitudinal reinforcement shall be designed for a moment M_e given by
(a) M_e=M+T(1+D\/b)/1.7
(b) M_e=M+T(1-D\/b)/1.7
(c) M_e=T(1+D\/b)/1.7
(d) M_e=T(1-b\/D)/1.7

Q5. A watershed having an area of 4 km² is subjected to a rainfall event of 9 cm, thereby generating stream flow at the outlet of the watershed for 10 h. If the average stream flow rate at the outlet of the catchment is 5m³/s, occurring for a period of 10 h, the runoff co-efficient of the watershed for the storm is:
(a) 0.4
(b) 0.3
(c) 0.6
(d) 0.5

Solutions

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. pH of incoming water = 7.2
pH of outgoing water = 8.4
Average pH value of water =?
pH = – log [H+]
7.2 = – log [H+]
Tanking anti log-
[H+] = 10^(-7.2)———— (1)
pH = – log [H+]
8.4 = – log [H+]
Tanking anti log-
[H+] = 10^(-8.4)———— (2)
Average concentration of [H+] = (10^(-7.2)+10^(-8.4))/2

Average pH = – log (10^(-7.2)+10^(-8.4))/2
= – log [3.35384×10^(-8) ]
= -(-7.47445762)
= 7.474

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Reynold’s no. = ρVd/μ=Vd/υ
V=Q/A=(1.5×10^(-3))/(π/4 〖(0.20)〗^2 )
V=(4×1.5×10^(-3))/(0.04×π)
V=0.0477 m\/sec
Re =Vd/υ=(0.0477×0.20)/(2.25×10^(-4) )=42.48
It is below than 2000 so the flow is laminar.

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. No.of joints (j) =7
No.of external reactions (r_e) =3
Kinematic indeterminacy (D_k) =2j-r_e
=(2×7)-3
▭(D_k=11)

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Longitudinal reinforcement shall be designed to resist equivalent moment.
▭(Me= M+M_t )
▭(M_t=T/1.7 (1+D/b) )
▭(Me=M+T ((1+D\/b)/1.7) )
Equivalent shear
▭(Ve=V+ 1.6 T/b)

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Stream flow rate (Q) = 5m³/s
Duration (t) = 10 hour
Area (A) = 4km²
Rainfall (R)= 9cm
Run off volume = Q × t = 5 m³/s × 10 hour = 5 m³/s × 10 × 60 × 60 sec.
Total precipitation = A × R = 4 × (1000)^2× 0.09
Run off co-efficient =(Runoff volume)/(Total precipition)
=(5×10×60×60)/(4×(1000)^2×0.09)
=0.5
