(a) 2600 mm²
(b) 2760 mm²
(c) 2830 mm²
(d) 2840 mm²

Q4. The maximum deflection in timber beams or joints should not be greater than
(a) span/300
(b) span/325
(c) span/360
(d) span/380

Q5. A vertical photograph was taken at an altitude of 1500 m above MSL. If the focal length of the camera is 20 m, the scale of photograph for a terrain lying at an elevation of 500 m
(a) 1 : 50
(b) 1 : 100
(c) 1 : 1000
(d) 1 : 25

Solutions

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given, Diameter of shaft (D) = 25cm.
Power (P) = 250 kW.
No. of revolution (N) = 150 rpms
P=2πNT/60000 KW
250=(2π×150×T)/60000
▭(T=15915.49 N-m)

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol.

 Parameters Units 1.      Turbidity Jackson turnidity unity (JTU) 2.      Pathogen Most probable number (MPN) 3.      Odour Threshold Odour number (TON) 4.      Colour True colour unit (TCU)

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Nominal dia. of Rivet (d) = 16 mm
Dia. of hole (d_h ) = 16 + 1.5
= 17.5 mm
Thickness (t) = 10 mm
Width (B) = 300 mm
A_net=(B-d_h )×t
=(300-17.5 )×10
=2825 mm^2

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. As per IS 883:1994, The deflection in case of battens, purlins, beam joist and other flexural members supporting brittle material shall not be greater than span/360.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given,
H = 1500 m.
f = 20 m.
h = 500 m.
S = ?
S=f/(H-h)=20/(1500-500)=20/100=1/50
▭(S=1:50)
