(a) Twice
(b) Four times
(c) Eight times

(a) Allowable solids content
(b) Sludge volume index
(c) Liquor index
(d) Chlorination limit

(a) 0.011
(b) 0.83
(c) 0.89
(d) 21.33

Q4. Oleic acid may be used in the manufacture of:

(b) Hydrophobic cement
(c) Anti-bacterial cement
(d) Portland pozzolana cement

Q5. A soil sample has bulk density of 21 kN/m^3 and water content 8%. Dry density of the sample is:
(a) 19.00 kN/m^3
(b) 18.44 kN/m^3
(c) 22.68 kN/m^3
(d) 19.44 kN/m^3

Q6. In a tension splice the number of rivets carrying calculated shear stress through a packing greater than 6mm thick, is to be increased by 2.5% for each _________ thickness of packing.
(a) 1 mm
(b) 1.5 mm
(c) 2 mm
(d) 2.5 mm

Solutions

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Spring stiffness, K=(Gd^4)/(8D^3 N)
K^’=(G×2^4.d^4)/(8×2^3×D^3 N)=2[(Gd^4)/(8D^3 N)]
=2K

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Sludge volume index → Sludge volume index is defined as volume occupied in ml. by 1 gm. Of solid in the mix liquor when allow to settle for 30 min.
▭(SVI=(Settled Sludge volume (ml))/(MLSS(gm.)))

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given,
Length of transition curve (L_s) = 80 m
Radius of the curve (R) = 320 m
Shift(s) = (L_s^2)/24R
=(80)^2/(24×320)
= 0.83 m

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Hydrophobic cement → A film of stearic acid and oleic acid is formed which reduces the rate of deterioration of cement during long storage.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given,
γ_b=21 kN/m^3
w=8%=0.08
γ_d=?
γ_d=γ_b/(1+w)=21/(1+0.08)=19.44 kN/m^3

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. In tension splice the number of rivets carrying shear stress through a packing greater than 6 mm thick is to be increased by 2.5% for each 2 mm thickness of packing.
