(a) 25
(b) 30
(c) 40
(d) 50

Solutions

S1. Ans.(d)
Sol.

σx = 5 MPa
σy = 5 MPa
Radius of Mohr circle = |(σx-σy)/2|
= |(5-5)/2|
= 0

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Arithmetical increase method is used to forecast the population of old and very large city. According to this method, the Population of town or city after ‘n’ decades is
▭(P_n=P_o+nx ̅ )
P_0= Present population
n = no. of decades
x ̅= Average of increase in population
P_n= Population after ‘n’ decades

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Friction factor according to Blasius equation,
f=0.316/(R_e^(1⁄4) )
f ∝1/(R_e^(1⁄4) )
f ∝ R_e^((-1)⁄4)
f ∝ R_e^(-0.25)

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. Pe= 1000 KN
Pcr = 1200 KN
Rankine load = ?
1/P=1/Pe+1/Pc
1/P=1/1000+1/1200
P= 545.45 KN

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. The side slope of canal is provided in different condition as follows for loam soil
1. In cutting = H:V = 1:1
2. In filling = H:V = 1.5:1
And for sandy soil
1. In cutting = H:V = 1.5:1
2. In filling = H:V = 2:1

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. The los angle abrasion value (%) of aggregate to be used for the final layer of bituminous concrete is limited to 30%.
