(b) 55%
(c) 40%
(d) 20%

(b) 5%
(c) 6%
(d) 4 %

Q5. Efflorescence in bricks cause due to …………………
(a) excessive burning of bricks
(b) high porosity of bricks
(c) high silt content in brick earth
(d) soluble salts present in clay

Q6. In the design of purlins, depth of angle section should not be less than:
(a) L/45
(b) L/60
(c) L/50
(d) No relationship

Solutions

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. For derive the relation between the flow rate and the pressure difference between the throat and straight section of a venturi meter we need continuity equation and Bernoulli’s equation both.

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol.

 Concrete Grade Type of concrete M10 – M20 Ordinary M25 – M55 Standard M60 – M80 High strength

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given,
Specific yield (S_y) = 30%
Porosity (n) = 50%
Specific retention (SR) =?
S_y+S_R=n
30%+S_R= 50%
S_R=20%

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. The ruling gradient for plain and rolling terrain is 3.3% or 1 in 30 while for mountainous terrain it is 5% or 1 in 20.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Defects in bricks-
Efflorescence→ This defect appears in bricks due to the presence of alkalis in the bricks.
Chuffs → This is the defect in bricks in which shape of the bricks gets deformed due to rain water falling on hot brick.
Bloating → Bloating of bricks is swollen spongy mass over the surface of burned bricks.
Black core→ The brick converts in black core because of improper burning.

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. In the design of purlin, depth of angle section should not be less than L/45 and the width should not be less than L/60.
