Q6. Lacey’s theory is applicable to flow
(a) Through pipes
(b) In concrete lined channels
(c) Over spillways
(d) In alluvial rivers and canals


S1. Ans.(d)

Discharge (m³/sec.) Freeboard (m.)
1 to 5 0.50
5 to 10 0.60
10 to 30 0.75
30 to 150 0.90

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Angle of the failure plane with the major principal plane is

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Class A → Eminently hydraulic lime
Class B → Semi-hydraulic lime
Class C → Fat lime
Class D → Dolomite lime

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given; E = 200 N/mm², G = ?
μ = 0.25
we know that,
G=80 N\/mm^2

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. True length of chain (l) = 20 m.
Actual length of chain (l) = 20.2m.
Measured length of line (L’) = 2380m.
Total correction required (C) =?
C=L^’ ((l^’-l)/l)
=23.8 m.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Lacey’s theory is applicable to flow in alluvial rivers and canals.
