Department of Civil Engineering


Model Question Paper

Subject Code: 13CE54

Session: Aug-Dec 2015


Time: 3 Hours
Max Marks: 70

Instructions: 1. Answer any FIVE full questions.


2. Assume any missing data suitably.
3. Draw neat diagrams wherever needed.
4. Use of IS: 456-2000 and SP: 16-1980 are permitted.
1.
2.

a.

Explain the philosophy of limit state design.

06

b.

Discuss the various loads to be considered for the design of RCC structural members?

08

a.

Why development length for the reinforcement is required?

05

b.

A RCC beam rectangular section 300 mm wide and overall depth of 450 mm is reinforced

09

with 4 bars of 20 mm diameter on tension side. Effective cover is 30 mm. Find the
ultimate moment of resistance and shear strength of the section, if fck = 25 N/mm2 and
fy = 500 N/mm2.
3.

A simply supported beam of rectangular section of 300 mm wide and 600 mm overall depth.

14

The effective span of beam is 5 m. The beam is reinforced on tension side with 4-#25 and on
compression side with 3-#20. The dead load on the beam including self weight is 5 kN/m. The
live load acting on the beam is 15 kN/m. Using M25 grade concrete and Fe415 steel, estimate
the short term and long term deflection of the beam. Assume an effective cover of 25 mm on
both sides.
4.

Design a simply supported RC beam to take an imposed load of 15 kN/m. Adopt M20 grade

14

concrete and Fe415 grade steel. The support width is 300 mm. Sketch the reinforcement
details.
5.

Design the interior span of a continuous slab for the following data.

14

Slab is continuous over Tee-beams spaced at 3.5 m intervals; Width of the rib = 230 mm;
superimposed load = 3 kN/m2; M20 grade concrete and Fe415 grade steel.
6.

a.

Enumerate the function of transverse reinforcement in a RC column.

04

b.

Design a rectangular column to carry an ultimate load of 2000kN. The unsupported

10

length of the column is 3.5m. The ends of the column are effectively held in position and
also restrained against rotation. The grade of concrete and steel are M20 and Fe 415
respectively.
7.

Design an isolated rectangular footing of uniform depth for the column of size 230 mm X 400

14

mm supporting an axial service load of 800 kN. The safe bearing capacity of the soil at site is
180 kN/m2. Use M20 grade concrete and Fe415 steel. Sketch the reinforcement details.
8.

a.

Explain the different loads to be considered during the design of a staircase.

04

b.

Design the reinforcement for one of the flight of waist slab type stairs with following data

10

Number of steps per flight = 13; Tread = 250 mm; Rise = 180 mm; Width of landing
beam = 300 mm; depth of waist slab = 150 mm; fck = 20 N/mm2; fy = 415 N/mm2
