(b) 1246 m³/s
(c) 786 m³/s

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. The popular software used for structural analysis and design of civil engineering structures is STAAD. Pro.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. In the absence of detailed design, the percentage of steel is taken as-
1. In case of raft foundation → 0.5% to 0.8%
2. In case of slab → 0.7% to 1.0%
3. In case of beam → 1.0% to 2.0%
4. In case of column → 1.0% to 5.0%

S3. Ans.(b)
1. Linear measurement shall be measured nearest up to 0.01m.
2. Area shall be measured to the nearest 0.01 m²
3. Cubic contents shall be worked out to be nearest 0.01 m³
4. Wood work shall be measured. Nearest to 2 mm or 0.002m.
5. RCC work in slab/beams/columns measured nearest to 0.5 cm or 0.005m.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given, Total cost (C) = 10,00,000 Rs
Scrap value (S) = 50,000 Rs
Design life (n) = 10 years
Annual depreciation by straight line Method→
D =(C-S)/n=(10,00,000-50,000)/10
▭(D=95000 Rs)
Depreciation value after – 5 years = 5 × 95000
= 4,75,000 Rs.
Book value after 5 years = 10,00,000 – 4,75,000
= 5,25,000

S5. Ans.(a)

KnotDiameter of knot
Pin knotUp to 6.50 mm dia.
Small knot6.50 mm – 20 mm
Medium knot20 mm – 40 mm
Large knotGreater than 40 mm

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. De- chlorination is the process of removing excess chlorine from water.
De – chlorinating agents
(i) SO_2 gas
(ii) Sodium thiosulphate (Na_2 S_2 O_3)
(iii) Activate carbon
(iv) Ammonia as (NH_4 OH)
(v) Sodium sulphate (Na_2 SO_3 )

S7. Ans.(d)

Quiz: Civil Engineering 29 June 2021_30.1

Moment of inertia about base.
Moment of India about centre of gravity.
I_BC/I_GG =(bh^3/12)/(bh^3/36)=3

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. The coefficient of hardness of a stone should be greater than 17.
▭(Coefficent of Hardness=(20- Loss in weight (in gm))/3)

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. u=-dψ/dy
u=-d/dy [x^3-y^3 ]= 3y^2
u (1,-1)= 3(-1)^2= 3
v=dψ/dx= d/dx [x^3-y^3 )= 3x^2
v(1,-1)=3(1)^2= 3
V=√(u^2+v^2 )
= √(3^2+3^2 )

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. Peak flood discharge given by Dicken formula-
Where Q= Peak flood discharge (m³/sec)
C= Dicken’s coefficient
A= Area in km²
Now given C= 16, A= 180 km²
Then Q= 16 (180)3/4
Q= 786.27 m³/sec
