(2) For the structure shown in the figure below, what is the most likely shear force diagram?

(A)

(B)

(C)

**(3) A building is generally divided into how many parts?**

**(A) Four**

(B) Three

(C) Two

(D) Six

**(4) What is the recommended maximum spacing of shear links in a beam according to British and European codes?**

(A) d

(B) 1.5d

(C) 0.75d

(D) Width of beam

**(5) What is the recommended minimum compressive strength for water retaining structures according to the Eurocodes?**

(A) C20/25

(B) C25/30

(C) C30/37

(D) C35/45

**(6) The process through which water reacts with free cement after hydration reaction in a concrete structure to seal up cracks is known as?**

(A) Post-hydration reaction

(B) Consolidation healing

(C) Efflorescence

(D) Autogenous healing

**(7) How many percentage of 28 days strength is expected of concrete after 7 days?**

(A) 50%

(B) 65%

(C) 30%

(D) 75%

**(8) A beam of span**

*L*is subjected to a uniformly distributed load*w*with support conditions pinned and fixed at either ends. What is the bending moment at the fixed end?**(A) wL**

^{2}/8

(B) wL

^{2}/12

(C) wL

^{2}/16

(C) wL

^{2}/24

(1) B

ReplyDelete(2) A

(3) A little vague question. Is it 'C', considering super and substructure

(4) C

(5) D - an educated guess!

(6) D

(7) was not sure B or D. I chose D

(8) For beam fixed at both ends M_end = wL2/12. Release moment in one end, then the carry over moment in wL2/24 in same direction. This give wL2/8 - 'C'

Thanks
