(a) 1.0 m
(a) 0.9 m
(c) 0.7 m
(d) 0.45 m

(a) θ= θ_1- θ_2
(b) T=T_1-T_2
(c) θ_1= θ_2
(d) T_1=T_2

Q6. The nominal shear stress (τ_v) in a reinforced concrete beam is given by
(a) bd/V_u
(b) V_u/(bd )
(c) V_u bd
(d) (V_u.b)/d

Solutions

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. ▭(Coefficient of permeability (K)=100 D_10^2 )
▭(KαD_10^2 )

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol.
σ_h1=pd/2t
σ_h2=P(2d)/2t
σ_h1/σ_h2 =(P(2d)\/2t)/(pd\/2t)=2/1
σ_h1:σ_h2=2∶1

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. Rounded aggregates have poor interlocking bond hence they are not suitable for high strength concrete and pavements subjected to tension.

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given, conjugate depths y_1=0.4 m.
y_2=1.4 m.
E_L= ?
E_L=(y_2-y_1 )^3/(4y_1 y_2 )
=(1.4-0.4)^3/(4×1.4×0.4)
▭(E_L=0.446≈0.45m)

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Shafts connected in series to each other having the same torque at each section and sum of twist at the end of section.
θ= θ_1+ θ_2
T=T_1=T_2

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Nominal Shear Stress (τ_v )=V/bd
V→Shear force
bd→Cross sectional area.
