SECTION - A (25 Marks)

1 Under what circumstances a trapezoidal footing is designed
2 What are counterforts in a retaining wall ?
3 Under what conditions a circular tank is preferred over a rectangular tank
4 Draw a neat sketch of kerb in slab bridge.
5 Define economical span of a bridge.
6 Explain with a neat sketch one-way shear and punching shear in footings
7 How do you check for safety against overturning in cantilever retaining walls.
8 Write the expression for the circumferential stress induced in the dome of a water tank
due to roof load
9 What is impact factor? How do you calculate impact factor for road bridges as per IRC

SECTION - B (50 Marks)
11 Design for flexure a rectangular combined footing for two columns of size 350mm x
350mm and 550mm x 550mm spaced at 3.8m c/c carrying service loads of 850KN
and 1250KN respectively. The safe bearing capacity of soil is 250KN/sq.m. Use M-25
concrete and Fe415 grade steel. Sketch the reinforcement details
12 Design the stem of a cantilever type retaining wall for flexure to retain earth fill 4.0m
above ground level. The safe bearing capacity of soil is 200KN/sq.m. Unit weight of soil
is 18KN/cubic metre and angle of repose is 30 degrees. Use M-25 concrete and Fe 415
grade steel. Sketch the reinforcement details.




13 Design the wall of a rectangular water tank (above ground) for a capacity of 60,000 litres. (10)
Use M-25 concrete and Fe 415 grade steel. Sketch the details of the reinforcement.
14 Design the walls of a circular tank of 3.2m diameter resting on ground to retain water to
a height of 3.0m excluding a free board of 0.15m. Assume the joints between the tank
wall and base slab as flexible. Use M-25 concrete and Fe 415 grade steel. Sketch the
details of reinforcement.
