QUIZ : CIVIL ENGINEERING ( 02 MAY 2021) |_30.1

(a) 5300 mm
(b) 5400 mm
(c) 5200 mm
(d) 5150 mm

Q9. The final deflection due to all loads including the effects of temperature, creep and shrinkage and measured from as–cast level of supports of floors, roofs and all other horizontal members should not exceed …………..
(a) Span/350
(b) Span/300
(c) Span/250
(d) Span/200

Q10. In an unsymmetrical beam under bending, the maximum compressive stress at top is 1200 MPa and the maximum tensile stress at bottom is 300 MPa. If the beam is 80 mm deep, the neutral axis from the top surface will be
(a) 60 mm
(b) 64 mm
(c) 40 mm
(d) 32 mm


S1. Ans.(d)
Minimum compressive strength in N/mm²
Days 1 day 3 days 7 days 28 days
OPC – 16.0 22.0 33.0

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Iron oxide imparts reddish brown color to cement. So, white cement should have least percentage of iron oxide.

S3. Ans.(c)
Material Unit Weight (kN/m³)
Brick masonry 19-20
Lime mortar 17-18
Cement mortar 20-21
Reinforced Cement concrete 24-25

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Alumina is the most important constituent of good clay, as it absorbs water and imparts the plastic qualities so that the brick can be molded.

S5. Ans.(c)
Anet = (B – n ×dn) × t
(n = 1)
dn = 18 + 2 = 20 mm
B = 30 cm = 3000 mm
∴ Anet = (300-1×20)×10 = 28 cm²
S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. As per IS code, overlength of weld – 2 (size of weld)

S7. Ans.(d)

QUIZ : CIVIL ENGINEERING ( 02 MAY 2021) |_40.1

Sol. Strength of steel increases with carbon content, but Young’s modulus remains constant.
S8. Ans.(a)

Effective span of simply supported beam.
Left = lo+d
=lo+W/2+W/2=lo+W ——— (Whichever is less)
Left = 5000+400=5400
S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. deflection after partition (final deflection) = Spon/250
Deflection before partition = Spon/350

S10. Ans.(b)

QUIZ : CIVIL ENGINEERING ( 02 MAY 2021) |_50.1

Sol. 1200/x=300/(80-x)
▭(x=64 mm)
