Each question carries 1 mark
Negative marking: 1/4 mark
Time: 8 Minutes

Q1. The locus of elevation that water will rise in a series of pitot tube is called ______.
(a) Hydraulic grade line
(b) Pressure head
(c) Energy grade line
(d) Head loss

Q2. EI(d³y/dx³) for a beam represent:
(a) Deflection
(b) Slope
(c) Moment
(d) Shear

Q3. In determining the bearing capacity of piles, empirical factor C is assumed………….. for drop hammers.
(a) 0.25
(b) 1.5
(c) 2.5
(d) 3.5

Q4. Lacey’s silt factor for medium silt whose average gain size is 0.25 mm, is likely to be:
(a) 0.66
(b) 0.77
(c) 0.88
(d) 0.99

Q5. Lacings in the built-up steel columns are designed to resist
(a) Bending Moment due to 2.5% of column load
(b) Shear Force due to 2.5% of column load
(c) Axial force due to 2.5% of column load
(d) Both (a) and (b)

Q6. The weight of 10 mm diameter mild steel rod per meter length is equal to________:
(a) 0.22 kg
(b) 0.32 kg
(c) 0.42 kg
(d) 0.62 kg


S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Pitot tube gives head at stagnation point. Pitot tube gives pressure and velocity head both. At a particular datum locus of pitot tube gives energy grade line.

S2. Ans.(d)
y → deflection
EI d²y/dx²→moment
EI d³y/dx³→shear
EI (d^4 y)/(dx^4 )→Loading

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Engineers news record formula
▭(Q_up=WH/(S+C)) (Drop hammer & Single acting steam hammer)
▭(Q_up=(W+aP)H/(S+C)) (Drop acting steam hammer)
Elastic constant (C).
C = 2.5 cm (Drop hammer)
C = 0.25 cm (steam hammer)

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given, dmm = 0.25 mm
Lacey’s silt factor (f) = 1.76 √dmm
= 1.76 √0.25
= 0.88

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Lacing member do not transfer any load from the column but in design of lacing member it is assumed that shear force due to 2.5% of column load will transfer through the lacing member.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Quantity of steel (in kg.) per meter length is given by = M/L=d^2/162=0.00618d^2
Where d = diameter of steel rod (in mm.)
L = length (in m.)
M = Quantity of steel (in kg.)
Now = M/L=0.00618d^2
= 0.00618×(10)²
= 0.618 ≃ 0.62 kg
