(b) 40 mm to 65 mm
(c) 75 mm to 100 mm
(d) 100 mm to 120 mm

Q6. Shear span is defined as the zone where:
(a) Bending moment is zero
(b) Shear force is zero
(c) Shear force is constant
(d) Bending moment is constant


S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. According to NBCC→
Group – A → Residential buildings
Group – B → Educational buildings
Group – C → Institutional buildings
Group – D → Assembly buildings

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Siliceous rocks → In these rocks, silica is predominates. They are hard and durable.
Ex. Granite, sandstone. Quartzite.

Argillaceous rock → In these rocks, the major constituent is clay. These are brittle in nature and can’t withstand shock.
Ex. Laterite, slates, kaoline.

S3. Ans(c)
Sol. d = 2 km
“Combine correction “(C)=-0.0673d^2
=0.0673×(2)^2 (Negative)
C=0.2692 m. (Negative)

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Food to micro-organism ratio (F/M ratio)= (Daily BOD load applied(gm))/(Total microbial mass (gm) )

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Allowable settlement of raft foundation –
Raft foundation on clay – 65 mm to 10mm
Raft foundation on sand – 40 mm to 65 mm.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Shear span is the distance from the point of application of concentrated force to its respective reaction force. throughout shear span the shear force is constant.
“Shear span is defined as the zone where shear force is constant.”
