ESE Civil Mains Exam Analysis Highlights 21 November 2021

The major highlights for the ESE IES mains exam for the Civil engineering papers are provided below. Check out the important points for both paper 1 and paper 2.

 Paper 1
 Building Materials
  • Questions are as usual more theoretical hence scoring becomes tough
 Strength of Materials
  • Little difficult to understand the FBD of torsion question
  • Transformation of stress is moderate
  • elastic constant and deformation very simple problem
 Structural Analysis
  • Two questions from ILD was easy to score.
  • The question from the Slope deflection and method of consistent deformation method were conceptually straight but calculative hence chances are there for calculation mistake.
  • One question asked from Structural dynamics was also normal but derivation requires understanding of Differential equation.  
 Design of Steel Structures
  • The eccentric connection question was tricky and lengthy
  • Column question is easy
  • Beam question is of Low shear case can be solved in time limit. 
 Design of Concrete & Masonry structures
  • Wide range of topics are covered.
  • Questions require good practice and accuracy.
  • Good level of questions.  
 Construction Practice, Planning and Mgmt.
  • One question is very easy and the rest questions are from unconventional topics.
 Paper 2
 Fluid Mechanics
  • Lengthy and Conceptual questions 
 Open Channel flow
  • Direct formula based Question of Hydraulic Jump 
 Hydraulic Machines
  • Straight forward question from Reaction turbine 
 Geotechnical Engineering
  • Mainly Foundation eng. and Consolidation dominated. 
  • Question from the Property of soil is easy but questions from foundation eng are conceptual.
 Highway Engineering
  • Focused more on theory rather than numerical questions 
 Railway, Airport and Tunnelling
  • More theoretical questions are asked hence it will be a little uneasy to grab more marks
 Environmental Engineering
  • Maximum questions are from wastewater engineering.
  • Some numericals are very simple.
 Surveying
  •  Some unconventional topics are asked
 Engineering Hydrology
  • One question of infiltration is very difficult to solve.
