(a) m = 3j – 2
(b) m = 2j – 3
(c) m = j – 2
(d) m = 2j – 1
Q11. The term ‘Characteristic load’ means that load which has a probability of not being exceeded, during the life of the structure is equal to:
Q12. If angle of internal friction of soil is 30°, coefficient of active earth pressure will be:
Sol. Dressing → Stone dressing is the process of providing proper shape and size to fresh quarried stone.
It is the process in which surface of stone is made fit to be used in any construction purpose.
Sol. Table of bond stress in IS code given for plain bars in tension.
→ for HYSD bar in tension increase the value by 60%
→ for bars in compression the value is increased by 25%
Sol. Vorticity is defined only for rotational flow. Stream function is defined for both rotational and irrotational flow. The velocity potential function exists for only irrotational flow.
Sol. Creep is the property of a specimen undergoes additional deformation with the passage of time under sustained loading within elastic limit. It cannot be recovered hence plastic in nature.
Sol. Increasing order of plasticity in clay mineral –
Silica → kaolinite → Illite → montmorillonite
Sol. Given, length of wheel base (l) = 7m
Radius (R) = 490m.
No. of lanes (n) = 2
mechanical widening W_me = (nl^2)/2R
= (2×(7)^2)/(2×490) = 0.1
Sol. Direct vernier – division which are slightly shorter than main scale. Reading increases in the direction of the main scale.
→ n division of vernier is equal to (n-1) division of main scale.
Retrograde vernier – Division which are slightly longer than main scale. Reading increases in a direction opposite to main scale. n division of vernier (n+1) division of main scale.
Sol. Wane → Presence of original rounded surface on the manufactured piece of timber called wane.
Torn grain→ it is the depression induced in timber due to falling of tools over timber.
Chip mark → This is the detect in timber indicated by mark or sign placed on finished surface of timber.
Sol. Aerobic attached growth process is a biological treatment in which biomass is attached over the medium and waste water passed through it.
Sol. The relationship, between number of joints (j), and the number of members (m), in a perfect truss, is given by –
m = 2j-3
Where m = No. of truss member
J =No. of joint in the truss.
Sol. Characteristic load means that load which has 95% probability of not being Exceeded during entire life of structure.
Sol. Angle of internal frictions (ϕ) =30 coefficient of Active earth pressure (K_a)=
