Question 6

A 500 mm diameter pipeline of length 4.5 km connects reservoir A and B whose constant difference of water level is 12m. From a point located at a distance of 1.5km from reservoir A leads to the reservoir C, a branch pipe of length 1.25km such that water level in reservoir C is 15m below that of reservoir A. The diameter of the branch pipe such that the flow into both the reservoirs is same is __________mm [rounded to nearest lower integer]
Take co-efficient of friction = 0.0075

Question 7

Diameter a pipeline PQR suddenly changes from 18cm to 36 cm at B. If the pipe is carrying a discharge of 45 l/sec from P to R, then the head loss at Q is _________ cm [correct to two decimal places]

Question 8

The distance from the pipe wall at which the local velocity is equal to the average velocity for turbulent flow in pipes is given by kR,where R is the radius of the pipe.The value of k will be…(correct to 3 decimal places)

Question 9

A stepped circular shaft is fixed at ‘A’ and ‘C’ as shown in fig. The diameter of the shaft BC is twice of ‘AB’. The torsional – rigidity of AB is ‘GJ’. The stiffness coefficient k11 is —

Question 10

At a site, the subsoil consists 6m thick layer of dry sand (e = 0.85, = 14.3 kN/ ,  = 0.14mm,  = 18.9 kN/ ). The water table is located at 4m depth below G.L what is height of capillary rise (if C= 0.5) and effective stress at the point where dry sand and saturated sand meet?

Question 11

There is a gravity dam of height 60 m and base width 300 m. The length of drainage filter provided is 120 m. Length of the projection of water surface on upstream side is calculated by assuming side slope as 1 in 2.75.

Calculate the seepage through the dam body assuming a free board of 2.5 m and permeability 4 × 10–7 m/sec.

Question 12

The rectangular column shown in the figure below carries 50 kN load having eccentricity 50 mm & 25 mm along x and y axis respectively the stress at point ‘a’ is
