(c) Determine design traffic volume
(d) Determine optimum signal cycle
Q3. A waste water sample of 2 ml is made upto 300 ml is BOD with distilled water Initial DO of the sample is 8mg/l and after 5 days it is 28mg/l. What is its BOD?
(a) 894 mg/l
(b) 900 mg/l
(c) 300 mg/l

(a) 6, 4
(b) 4, 6
(c) 4, 8
(d) 6, 8
Q6. What is the value of the slope required for coning of the wheel?
(a) 1 in 10
(b) 1 in 15
(c) 1 in 20
(d) 1 in 25
Sol. In chain surveying only linear measurements are made that is lengths are only measured by chain or tape. Chain surveying is the simplest and the most accurate kind of surveying. If the chain line which runs along N-S direction is horizontal and the ground in E-W direction is slopping is possible to set offsets correctly on both sides.
Sol. Webster’s method is used for determining optimum signal cycle length (C_O) and it is given by according to webster’s method–
L = Total lost time in a cycle length
Y = sum of critical flow rate for all phases
Sol. Given, volume of diluted sample = 300 ml.
Initial volume of test sample = 2 ml.
Initial dissolved oxygen (DOi)= 8 mg/l
Final dissolved oxygen (DO_F)= 2 mg/l.
▭(BOD=(DOi-DO_F )×Dilution factor)
Dilution factor = (volume of diluted sample)/(Initial volume of test sample)
BOD= (8-2) ×150
= 900 mg/l.
Sol. porosity (n) = 1/3
G = 2.5
Critical hydraulic gradient (i_c) =?
e = n/(1-n )=(1\/3)/(2\/3)=0.5
Sol. Minimum number of longitudinal bars is 4 in rectangular column & 6 for circular column.
Sol. The value of the slope required for coning of the wheel is 1 in 20.
