Objective Questions And Answers for All Competitive Exams


1 b) 2.71


  • The flexural tensile strength of concrete (fcr) = 0.7Ѵfck
  • For M15 grade of Concrete, fcr = 0.7Ѵ15 =2.711.
  • The Split tensile strength of Concrete = 0.462 Ѵfck.
  • The Direct tensile strength of Concrete = 0.35 Ѵfck.

2 Ans  a) IS 432


IS 432: Mild Steel.

IS 1786: High Yield Strength Deformed Bars (HYSD).        

Indian Standard (IS 383) for Aggregate.

IS: 456-2000: For Reinforced Concrete Structure.

3: c) 100 mm-150 mm    

4 d). 450 Kg/ m3


S.NoExposure ConditionMinimum Grade of Concrete (RCC)Minimum Cement Content (Kg/m3)

2ModerateM 25300
3SevereM 30320
4Very SevereM 35340
5ExtremeM 40360

5 c). 4


In Working Stress Method (WSM)

  • F.O.S of Concrete Subjected under Bending Compression = 3.
  • Factor of safety of Concrete Subjected under Direct Compression = 4.
  • F.O.S of Steel =1.8

In Limit State Method (LSM)

  • Partial Safety Factor of Concrete =1.5
  • Partial Safety Factor of Steel =1.15

6 Ans: b)


  • Generally the nominal size of aggregate used up to 20 mm.
  • Maximum size of aggregate in case of No flow restriction is 40 mm.
  • Maximum size of Aggregate shall not be more than 1/4 th of the thickness of Member.

7 Ans: e)


  • Creep means at constant stress, continuously increase in strain is called creep.
  • It is Time dependent phenomenon.
  • It occurs due to dead load and Permanent attached load.
  • Creep Coefficient (Ө) = Ultimate Creep Strain / Elastic strain.

8  Ans: b)


  • Modulus of concrete (Ec) = 5000*Ѵfck (As per IS 456-2000), so Ec α fck.
  • Modulus of concrete (Ec) = 5700*Ѵfck, (As per IS 456-1987) so Ec α fck.

9  Ans: b)


  • Poisson’s ratio of steel in elastic state = 0.3
  • Poisson’s ratio of steel in plastic state = 0.5

10 Ans: c)


  • In the case of LSM, Design Load = Partial Safety Factor x Characteristics Load.
  • In the Case of WSM, Working Load = Characteristics Load.
