Question 1

Read the following statements carefully
Statement I: The most widely used test for design of rigid pavements is the California Bearing Ratio (CBR) test.
Statement II: CBR test can be used for evaluating soil strength properties such as cohesion and internal friction.
Choose the correct option

Question 2

The rigid pavement are made of

Question 3

For a 25cm thick cement concrete pavement, analysis of stresses gives the following values
Description: D:\GradeStack Courses\GATE Tests (Sent by Ravi)\Civil Engg\Civil Engineeing-01-Apr\Civil-Engineering-2005-01-Apr_files\image145.png
The most critical stress value for this pavement is

Question 4

Consider the following statements in the context of cement concrete pavements.
I: Warping stresses in cement concrete pavements are caused by the seasonal variation in temperature
II: Tie bars are generally provided across transverse joints of cement concrete pavements
The correct option evaluating the above statement is

Question 5

In a pavement slab of thickness 18 cm the modulus of elasticity of concrete and Poisson's ratio are 3 x 105 kg/cm2 and 0.15 respectively. Plate bearing test shown the pressure of 1.2 kg/cm2 corresponding to 1.25 mm penetration. What is the radius (in cm) of relative stiffness of pavement slab?

Question 6

The width of the expansion joint is 20mm in a cement concrete pavement. The laying temperature is 20 °C and the maximum slab temperature in summer is 60 °C. The coefficient of thermal expansion of concrete is 10 x 10–6 mm/mm / °C and the joint filler compresses upto 50% of the thickness. The spacing between expansion joints should be
