(b) 0.12
(c) 1.33
(d) 0.70

(a) 75 m
(b) 25 m
(c) 7.5 m

(b) Very dry aggregates
(c) Dry aggregates
(d) Saturated surface dry aggregate

Q4. Which precipitation is caused by natural rising of warmer lighter air in colder and denser surroundings?

(b) Orographic precipitation
(c) Convective precipitation
(d) None of these

Q5. In a slab, the minimum reinforcement using steel of grade Fe 415 is:
(a) 0.12% of its gross sectional area
(b) 0.20% of its gross sectional area
(c) 0.15% of its gross sectional area
(d) 0.10% of its gross sectional area

Q6. What is the ratio of weight of rail in tonnes to the locomotive axle load in tonnes in India?
(a) 1:510
(b) 1:410
(c) 1:310
(d) 1:210

Solutions

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. percentage air void (η_a ) = 30%
Porosity (n) = 0.4
Air content (a_c) = ?
η_a = na_c
0.30 = 0.4 × a_c
▭(a_c=0.75)

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Staff intercept (s) = 0.75 meter
▭(D=kS+C)
Multiplying constant (k) = 100
D= 100×0.75+0
▭(D=75 metre)

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Depending upon the amount of moisture content in aggregates, it can exist in any of the 4 conditions.
● Very dry aggregate (having no moisture)
● Dry aggregate (contain some moisture in its pores)
● Saturated surface dry aggregate (pores completely filled with moisture but no moisture on surface)
● Moist or wet aggregates (pores are filled with moisture and also having moisture on surface)

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Orographic precipitation → It is the result from lifting of warm moisture laden air masses due to topographic barriers like mountains.
Cyclonic precipitation → It is caused by lifting of air mass due to pressure difference.
Convective precipitation → It is caused by natural rising of warmer, lighter air in colder and denser surroundings.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. In a slab, the minimum reinforcement using steel of grade HYSD bars (Fe 415) is 0.12% of its gross sectional area and for plain bars (Fe 250), the minimum reinforcement is 0.15% of its gross sectional area.

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. The ratio of weight of rail in tones to the locomotive axle load in tonnes is 1:510 in India.
