(b) time taken for a task
(c) end of an activity
(d) work involved in the project
Q10.Friction piles are most effective in

σ_x= – σ
Radious of Mohr circle = |(σ_x-σ_y)/2|
Sol. Double reinforced beam provided –
1. Depth of the beam restricted
2. Increasing moment carrying capacity.
3. Safety against reversal of stress.
4. Reduce deflection of beam.
Sol. Self-cleansing velocity is such flow velocity as would be sufficient to flush out any deposited solids in the sewer. A sewer is commonly designed to attain the self-cleansing velocity at minimum hourly rate of flow.
Height of collimation of instrument at station P
= RL of Benchmark + B.S. of Benchmark
= 100 + 2.6
= 102.6 m.
RL of A = Height of collimation at P – F.S. at A
= 102.6 – 2.9
= 99.7 m.
Sol. Versine of curve having Length (L) and radius (R) is given by–
|Gauge||Size of sleeper|
|Broad Gauge |
|275 × 25 × 13 cm. |
180 × 20 × 11.5 cm.
150 × 18 × 11. 5 cm.
Sol. Joints (J) = 4
External Reactions (r_e)=5
Members (m) = 3
Internal hinged reaction (r_r) = 1
Degree of kinematic indeterminacy (D_k) = ?
Sol. Heart shakes → Cracks widest at centre and diminishing towards the outer circumference.
Knot → A branch base embedded in timber by natural growth.
Rot → Disintegration caused by fungi.
Sap wood → Outer layers of a log of wood.
Sol. The full of PERT is Program Evaluation Review Technique. It breaks down the individual task of a project for analysis. In PERT analysis, event means start or finish of a task.
Sol. Friction piles are also called as ‘floating pile’. These piles are most effective in dense sand and used to transfer load through skin friction between the embedded surface of the pile and the surrounding soil.
