(a) Permeability of soil

Q10. The critical depth of flow in a most economical triangular channel section for a discharge of 1 m³/sec is given by
Sol. Given, length of wheel base (l) = 5.5 m
Radius (R) = 30 m.
Off tracking = ?
Off Tracting =l^2/2R
Sol. In post tension system, the compressive stress is transfer in concrete after casting of concrete with the help of jack or couplers at the ends. This system is economically for large spans and is adopted now a days.
Sol. In sway frame, transverse displacement of one end of member relative to others end is not effectively prevented while in non-sway frame, transverse displacement of one end of member relative to others end is effectively prevented.
Sol. This method is suitable for walls of similar cross sections. Here the total center line length is multiplied by breadth and depth of respective item to get the total quantity at a time. When cross walls or partitions or verandah walls join with main wall, the center line length gets reduced by half of breadth for each junction.
Sol. form the Torsion equation →
Where θ = angle of twist
T= Applied twisting moment
L= Length of the shaft
G= Modulus of rigidity
J= Polar moment of inertia
Sol. → Closely space contour lines ⇒ Steep slope
→ Apart contour lines ⇒ Gentle slope
→ equally spaced contour lines ⇒ Uniform slope
→ Straight parallel and equally spaced contour lines ⇒ Plane surface.
Sol. Binders→ it is provided to take the load of bridging joist and floor toppings,
Girders→ these are placed to support binders.
Screed → it is narrow strips of wood or bands of plaster laid on floor to act as guides to get an even surface for toppings.
Toppings → Top most lair of a floor is called toppings.
Sol. Phreatic line is the top flow line which separates the saturated soil mass from the unsaturated soil mass. Pressure below phreatic line is hydrostatic pressure but pressure on and above phreatic line is atmosphere.
So, condition of zero atmospheric pressure can be expected at phreatic surface.
Sol. Yield of a well means the discharge from the well excavated through given aquifer-
Hence, yield of a well depends upon actual flow velocity of ground water, permeability of soil and area of aquifer.
Sol. for most economical triangular channel section, the side slope m = tanθ = tan 45
Given, Q = 1 m³/sec.
Now, critical depth for triangular channel
