SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(b)

Sol. Let us assume that the length of summit curve is grater than the sight distance.

∴ Length of parabolic summit curve =(NS^2)/(√2H+√2h)^2

=(0.08×150^2)/(√(2×1.5)+√(2×0.15))^2

=346.33m/(>150m ▭ok)

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol.

BM at centre = 9 kN-m

∵WL/4=9

⇒(W×9)/4=9

⇒W=4 kN

∵ Deflection at centre = (WL^3)/48EI=(4×9^3)/48EI=61/EI

S3. Ans.(c)

Sol. Equilibrium discharge of S-curve = (Total discharge)/(Unit hr.duration)

=(40×10^6×0.01)/(4×3600)

= 28 m³/sec

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol.

For no sliding,

fN≥mgsinθ

⇒fmg wsθ≥mgsinθ

⇒f≥tanθ

⇒▭(f≥e)

S5. Ans.(a)

Sol. Correction of slope = h^2/2L=〖0.10〗^2/(2×50)=0.0001 m

∵ Horizontal distance

= 50 – 0.0001 = 49.999 m.

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol. Floating car method or riding cheek method or moving car method is used for speed and delay studies. Radar gun is used to measure spot speed. Enoscope and pneumatic tube are used for traffic counting.

S7. Ans.(d)

Sol. Sludge vol. index (S V I) = (Vob (ml\/l))/(X_ob (mg\/l) )×1000

=300/5000×1000

= 60 ml/gm

S8. Ans.(b)

Sol. e_max=e_th=(G V_max^2 )/127R

= (1.676×100^2)/(127×875)

=0.1575

=▁((15.75cm) ̅ )

S9. Ans.(c)

Sol. Stability number S_N=Cm/γ_H

Where, C_m=C/FOS=20/2.5=8 kN\/m^2

∵ Maximum safe height

H = 8/(30×0.07)=3.81 m.

S10. Ans.(d)

Sol. Ip=I_zz=I_xx+I_yy

= (bd^3)/12+(db^3)/12

=bd/12 (d^2+b^2 )

=(3×6)/12 (6^2+3^2 )

=(▁(67.5cm^4 )) ̅
