Basic
Civil Engineering December 2008 Question Paper
1. (a) List and explain various physical and mechanical properties of
materials used for construction? (b) Discuss characteristics of a
building stone. Give values of compressive strength of any three
building stone. 2. Explain the principle of making mortar and concrete
pointing out the influence of size of aggregates and water-cement ratio
on the proportioning and strength of mortars and concrete. 3. (a)
Define orientation of a building. explain the various aspects of
orientation of building? (b) Name the different type of foundations you
recommend under different situations and soils. Explain them brief and
give neat sketch? 4. (a) State the general principles to be observed in
brick masonary construction. Sketch (i) Ashlar (ii) Rubber masonary in
elevation (b) What is dampness? What are its ill effects? Explain with
sketches how damp proofing is done in building? 5. (a) The distance
between two station was 1200 m when measured with a 20 m chain. The
same distance when measured with 30 m chain was found to be 1195 m. If
the 20 m chain was 0.05 m too long, what was the error in the 30 m
chain? The sides of a triangle are 156, 103 and 257 m respectively.
