Q1. Friction piles are most effective in
(a) Soft clay
(b) Dense sand
(c) Organic soil
(d) Filled up soil
Q2. Addition of sugar in concrete result in………
(a) Increase in setting time by about 1 hr.
(b) Increase in setting time by about 4 hr.
(c) Decrease in setting time by about 1 hr.
(d) Decrease in setting time by about 4 hr.
Q3. The type of cement used in lining of deep tube wells is:
(a) Blast furnace slag cement
(b) Portland pozzolana cement
(c) Oil well cement
(d) High alumina cement
Q4. At a hydraulic jump, the depths at the two sides are 0.4 m and 1.4 m. The head loss in the jump is nearly?
(a) 1.0 m
(a) 0.9 m
(c) 0.7 m
(d) 0.45 m
Q5. A soil sample has bulk density of 21 kN/m^3 and water content 8%. Dry density of the sample is:
(a) 19.00 kN/m^3
(b) 18.44 kN/m^3
(c) 22.68 kN/m^3
(d) 19.44 kN/m^3
Q6. In a tension splice the number of rivets carrying calculated shear stress through a packing greater than 6mm thick, is to be increased by 2.5% for each _________ thickness of packing.
(a) 1 mm
(b) 1.5 mm
(c) 2 mm
(d) 2.5 mm
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.
Sol. Sugar is used as retarder in concrete. It increases in setting time by about 4 hr.
Sol. Portland – Pozzolana cement (PPC) is used in lining of deep tube wells. It is manufactured by grinding OPC and Pozzolana (containing fly ash 10 to 25% by mass). It is also used in mass concreting and places of high temperature.
Sol. Given, conjugate depths y_1=0.4 m.
E_L=(y_2-y_1 )^3/(4y_1 y_2 )
Sol. In tension splice the number of rivets carrying shear stress through a packing greater than 6 mm thick is to be increased by 2.5% for each 2 mm thickness of packing.
