Q1. At two points 1 and 2 in a pipeline the velocities are V and 2V, respectively. Both the points are at the same elevation. The fluid density is ρ. The flow can be assumed to be incompressible, inviscid, steady and irrotational. The difference in pressures P_1 and P_2 at points 1 and 2 is
(a) 0.5 ρV²
(b) 1.5 ρV²
(c) 2 ρV²
(d) 3 ρV²
Q2. The composition of a certain MSW sample and specific weights of its various components are given below:
|Component||Percent by weight||Specific weight (kg/m³)|
|Dirt and Ash||30||500|
|Wood and Yard waste||10||125|
Specific weight (kg/m³) of the MSW sample is
Q3. A 500 mm. square bearing plate settle by 20mm in a plate load test on a cohesive soil when the intensity of loading is 0.2 N/mm². the settlement of a prototype shallow footing ‘1m’ square under the same intensity of loading is-
(a) 60 mm
(b) 50 mm
(c) 40 mm
(d) 30 mm
Q4. A linear reservoir is on in which
(a) The storage varies linearly with the outflow rate
(b) The storage varies linearly with time
(c) The storage varies linearly with the inflow rate
(d) The volume varies linearly with elevation
Q5. The maximum deflection in timber beams or joints should not be greater than
Appling Bernoulli’s equation
▭(P_1-P_2=1.5 ρV^2 )
Sol. Let specific weight of MSW sample is Y kg/m³.
▭(Y=217.15 kg\/m^3 )
Size of square bearing plate (B_p) = 500 mm.
= 0.5 m.
Size of square footing (B_F) = 1 m
Settlement in bearing plate (S_P )= 20 mm.
Settlement in footing (S_F ) =?
For clays soil,
▭(S_F =40 mm.)
Sol. A linear reservoir is one in which the storage varies linearly with the outflow rate.
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.
