Gate Civil Engineering Previous Year Solved Paper 2- 2014 MCQs

Correct! Wrong!

The first moment of area about the axis of bending for a beam cross-section is

Correct! Wrong!

Section modulus, z = I/r = A.r.r/r = A.r i.e. Moment of Area

Polar moment of inertia (Ip), in cm4, of a rectangular section having width, b = 2 cm and depth, d = 6 cm is ________________

Correct! Wrong!

Polar moment of inertia = Moment of Inertia about XX axis + YY axis. = bd3/12 + db3/12 = 2*6*6*6/12 + 6*2*2*2/11 = 40

The target mean strength fcm for concrete mix design obtained from the characteristic strength fck and standard deviation σ, as defined in IS:456-2000, is

Correct! Wrong!

Fcm = fck + 1.35 σ ( According to IS 456:2000)

The flexural tensile strength of M25 grade of concrete, in N/mm2, as per IS:456-2000 is __________

Correct! Wrong!

Flexural tensile strength of M25 grade of concrete, Fcr = 0.7*(fck)^0.5 = 0.7 * (25)^0.5 = 3.5 N/mm2

The modulus of elasticity, E = 5000 fck^0.5 where fck is the characteristic compressive strength of concrete, specified in IS:456-2000 is based on

Correct! Wrong!

The modulus of elasticity, E = 5000 fck^0.5 is based on initial tangent modulus

The static indeterminacy of the two-span continuous beam with an internal hinge, shown below, is ______________

Correct! Wrong!

Dg = 3m+r-3j-r, m = no. of members = 4, r = no. of external reactions = 4, j = no. of joints = 5, r = no. of reactions released = 2-1 = 1 So, Dg = 3*4 +4 -3*5 -1 = 0

As per Indian Standard Soil Classification System (IS: 1498 - 1970), an expression for A-line is

Correct! Wrong!

As per Indian Standard Soil Classification System (IS: 1498 - 1970), an expression for A-line is Ip = 0.73 (wL - 20)

The clay mineral primarily governing the swelling behavior of Black Cotton soil is

Correct! Wrong!

The clay mineral primarily governing the swelling behavior of Black Cotton soil is Montmorillonite

The contact pressure for a rigid footing resting on clay at the centre and the edges are respectively

Correct! Wrong!

The contact pressure for a rigid footing resting on clay at the centre and the edges are respectively minimum and maximum

A certain soil has the following properties: Gs = 2.71, n = 40% and w = 20%. The degree of saturation of the soil (rounded off to the nearest percent) is _________

Correct! Wrong!

Gs = 2.71, n = 40% = 0.40, W = 20%, S = ? e = n/(1-n) = 0.40/0.60 = 0.67, S = WG/e = 0.20*2.71/0.67 = 0.808 = 81%
