Statement-I: Load Stresses are inversely proportional to wheel load.
Statement-II: Modulus of subgrade reaction is useful for load stress calculation.
Which of the following options are correct?

Question 2

If Rigidity factor < 1 than

Question 3

If the load, warping and frictional stresses in a cement concrete slab are 250 N/mm2, 200 N/mm2 and 20 N/mm2 respectively, then the critical combination of stresses at edge during summer mid day is ________ N/mm2.

Question 4

A rigid pavement 3 m X 0.2 m has coefficient of relative stiffness 8kg/cm3, Poisson’s ratio 0.15, Coefficient of thermal expansion =10 X 10-6 /oC,  and Youngs Modulus = 3 X 104 N/mm2.
Bradbury coefficients Cx and Cy are 0.7 & 0.8 respectively. The radius of contact between the road and tyre = 0.15 m, the temperature gradient during night = 15 oC.
Find the warping stress (in MPa) at the edge of the rigid pavement.

Question 5

For a 20 cm thick cement concrete pavement, analysis of stresses gave the following values.
Wheel load stress due to corner loading = 25 kg/cm2
Wheel load stress due to edge loading = 27 kg/cm2
Warping stress at corner region during winter = 7 kg/cm2
Warping stress at edge region during winter = 5 kg/cm2
Warping stress at corner region during summer = 10 kg/cm2
Warping stress at edge region during summer = 8 kg/cm2
Frictional stress at edge region during summer= 5 kg/cm2
Frictional stress during winter = 4 kg/cm2
The most critical stress value for this pavement is ________ kg/cm2.
