Solutions
S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. ΣV=0
R_A+R_B=P——-(1)
ΣM_C=0
R_B×L/2=0
▭(R_B=0)
From equation (1)
▭(R_A=P)

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Fillet size (f_S )=6mm.
Length (L) = 100 mm.
Allowable shear stress (P_ss )=110 MPa
Strength of weld (P) = 0.7 × f_s×L×P_ss
=0.7×6×100×110
=46,200 N
▭(P=46.2 kN)

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Total weight = 10 + 35 + 20 + 35 = 100 units
Dry weight = 03 + 30 + 10 + 20 = 63 units
Available moisture = 100 – 63 = 37 units
%Moisture content = 37/100×100% = 37%

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. From ∆APQ
Tan 30°=h/810
h=810×1/√3
▭(h=467.65m)
RL of top of tower = RL of station + BS + h
= 110 + 2.555 + 467.65
= 580.208 m

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given,
d = 40mm
∆d= -0.005 mm.
L=400 mm
∆L=0.150mm
μ= ?
Poission’s ratio (μ)=-(Latrel strain)/(Longitudinal strain)
=-((∆d/d))/((∆L/L) )
= -(((-0.005)/40))/((0.150/400) )
=1/3
▭(μ=0.33)

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Hex bolt designation M16 ×70 NL means bolt have nominal diameter of 16 mm and length of 70 mm.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol.
S_P=10 mm.
B_P=0.3 m
B_F=1.5 m
S_F= ?
For sandy soils
S_P/S_F =[(B_P (B_F+0.3))/(B_F (B_P+0.3) )]^2
10/S_F =[0.3(1.5+0.3)/1.5(0.3+0.3) ]^2
▭(S_F=27.8 mm)

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given, d = 40 km
Height of lighthouse (h) will be –
h=0.0673 d^2
=0.0673×(40)^2
=107.68 m.

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Serviceability → Deflection
Shear key → Sliding
Shrinkage → Cracking
Concrete spalling → corrosion
→ Concrete spalling is caused by corrosion of steel reinforcement bars.

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given, n=10
A=300
r=7%=0.07
F=2.5
N_s=?
N_s=365A[((1+r)^n-1)/r]×F
=365×300[((1+0.07)^10-1)/0.07]×2.5
