Question 1

Consider the following statements regarding ductility of bitumen:
1) Ductility is the property which does not permit bitumen to undergo large deformation without breaking.
2) Bitumen with high ductility are generally adhesive but do not have good cementing properties.
3) Ductility must be ascertained at two different temperatures in order to pronounce on the suitability of the material.
Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Question 2

Two wheel loads 200 kN and 80 kN spaced at 2 m apart move on the span of girder of 16 m. If any wheel load can lead the other, the maximum bending moment that can occur at a section of 6 m from the left end will be

Question 3

At a point in a material the intensity of resultant stress on a certain plane is 100 MPa as shown in figure which is inclined at 60o to normal of that plane. The stress on the plane at right angle to this plane has normal tensile component of 30MPa. What is the major principal stress?

Question 4

Representative samples of layer of silty clay having thickness of 4m were tested in a consolidometer and the following results were obtained:

Preconsolidation stress,

Recompression index, Cr = 0.03

Compression index, Cc = 0.30

If the present average over burden stress of the layer () is 60KN/m2 and increase in average stress in the layer is 90KN/m2, Consolidation settlement (in mm) would be

Question 5

A water course commands an irrigated area 1200 hectares. The intensity of irrigation of rice in this area is 72 %. The transplantation of rice crop takes 17 days and during the transplantation period total depth of water required by the crop on the field is 450 mm. During the transplantation period, the useful rainfall on the field is 110 mm. What is the duty of irrigation water from the crop on the field during transplantation, at the head of the water course assuming losses of water to be 25% in the water course?

Question 6

A retaining wall 5m high retains a cohesive soil having C = 20 kN/m2, unit weight 21 kN/m3 and ϕ = 30o. A uniform surcharge acts on the top of the soil. If the total passive earth pressure on the wall is 2260 kN/m; value of surcharge acting on the soil is:

Question 7

statement (I): Plate load test is not of much relevance for clayey soils.

statement (II): In clayey soil, settlement of footing depends upon size of plate used in plate load test.

Question 8

The maximum velocities in a circular pipe at two points 15 cm apart along the flow are 1.5 m/s and 4 m/s. The average convective acceleration along the middle of the tube if the flow is laminar will be (in m/s­2):
