Objective Questions And Answers for All Competitive Exams


 1 Ans  d)

 2 Ans  d)


  • Limiting value of Neutral axis (Xulimit) =0.53d ( for Fe 250).
  • Limiting value of Neutral axis (Xulimit) =0.48d ( for Fe 415).
  • (Xulimit) =0.46d ( for Fe500).
  • Limiting value of Neutral axis (Xulimit) =0.44d ( for Fe 550).
  • Here, the Limiting value of N.A. depends upon the grade of steel or type of steel and effective depth of steel.

3 Ans  b)


  • Creep Coefficient (Ө) =2.2 for 7 days.
  • for 28 days, Creep Coefficient (Ө) =1.6 for 28 days.
  • Creep Coefficient (Ө) =1.1 for 2 years.

4 Ans  c)


  • Maximum limit of chloride content in water = 2000 mg/l (for PCC Work).
  • Maximum limit of chloride content in water = 500 mg/l  (for RCC Work).

 5 Ans  c)


  • As concrete Member is subjected in Tidal zone, so exposure condition = Extreme condition.
  • For extreme Nominal cover = 75 mm, for mild, Nominal cover =20 mm, additional cover thickness = 75 -20 = 55 mm.

As per IS 456-2000;

S. NoExposure ConditionNominal cover (mm)
4Very Severe50

 6  Ans  d)


  • Creep means at constant stress, continuously increase in strain is called creep.
  • It is Time dependent phenomenon.
  • Short Term deflection occurs due to dead load, Live load and permanent attached load.
  • Long term deflection occurs due to creep and shrinkage.

7 Ans  c)


  • In case of Limit state Method; Design strength of steel = 0.87 fy
  • for Fe 500, fy =500 N/mm2, Design strength of steel = 0.87*500 = 435 N/mm2

8 Ans  d)


  • The Direct tensile strength of Concrete = 0.35 Ѵfck. For M25, Direct Tensile Strength = 0.35 * Ѵ25 = 1.75.
  • The flexural tensile strength of concrete (fcr) = 0.7Ѵfck
  • The Split tensile strength of Concrete = 0.462 Ѵfck.

  9 Ans  a)


  • Working Stress of any grade of Steel = fy/1.8. Where 1.8 is the Factor of safety of steel in case of working stress method.
  • For Fe 500, Working stress = 500/1.8 =275 N/mm2.

   10 Ans  b)


  • Maximum compressive strain in Bending Compression = 0.0035.
  • Maximum compressive strain at direct Compression = 0.002.
