〖 C〗_c= Coefficient of curvature
C_u = Coefficient of uniformity
D_10 = Effective size
D_30= Diameter through which 30% of the total soil mass is passing
If C_c=1.0 and C_u=4.0, then what would be the value of D_30 \/D_10 ?
(a) 2.00
(b) 1.25
(c) 1.50

(d) shear and bending

Q5. What is the mechanical widening required for a pavement of width 7 m. on a horizontal curve of radius 490 m, if the longest wheel base of vehicle expected on the road is 7.0 m?
(a) 0.05 m
(b) 0.07 m
(c) 0.1 m
(d) 0.49 m

Q6. The type of rain-gauge commonly used in India for measuring rainfall is given by:
(a) weighing bucket type rain-gauge
(b) tipping bucket type rain-gauge
(c) floating type rain-gauge
(d) Simon’s rain-gauge


S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. The portion of the brick without a triangular corner equal to half the width and half the length is called king closer.

NHPC-JE'21 CE: Daily Practices Quiz. 12-Nov-2021_2.1

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. C_c=1 C_u=4
(D_30 )^2/(D_60 D_10 )=1–(1) D_60/D_10 =4–(2)
Multiply both eq^n
(D_30/D_10 )^2=4 ⇒ ▭(D_30/D_10 =2)

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Moment of inertia of follow circular section
I=π/64 ( d_O^4-di_O^4 )
=π/64 (8^4-6^4 )
=137.44 cm^4

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Bolts are used as temporary fastenings while rivets are used as permanent fastening. Bolts are primarily design for axial tension.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given, length of wheel base (l) = 7 m.
Radius (R) = 490 m
No. of lanes (n) = 2
Mechanical widening, W_me = (nl^2)/2R
=(2×(7^2 ))/(2×490)
= 0.1 m

S6. Ans.(d)
– Simon rain gauge is a non-recording type of rain gauge and commonly used in India.
– Natural syphon rain gauge is adopted in India. It similar to weighing bucket rain gauge. It is recording type of rain gauge.
– Tipping bucket type of rain gauge is used for measuring rain in remote areas. It is recording type of rain gauge means produce continuous plot of rainfall against time.
