Question paper consists of Part-A and Part-B

Answer ONE question from Part-A

Answer any THREE questions from Part-B

*****

PART ?A (1×28 Marks)1. Design a reinforced concrete raft foundation connecting the columns of a multi

storied building. The columns are arranged in square grid 16 m by 16 m with

their spac in g ?s 4 m apart. The safe bearing capacity of the soil at the site is 100

kN/m

2

. The total service load on all the columns is 4800 kN. The columns are

400 mm by 400 mm in section. Adopt M20 grade concrete and Fe 415 HYSD

bars. Sketch the details of reinforcements in the raft foundation.

[28]

2 A rectangular water tank is to be designed to store 2500 kl water. The tank is to

be made just above the ground level and the safe bearing capacity of the soil is

75 kN/m

2

. Design the water tank for safe bearing capacity of soil of 75 kN/m

2

.

The roof and bottom slabs and the columns are with M20 concrete and the walls

are with M20 concrete.

[28]

PART ?B (3×14 = 42 Marks)3. Design an Intze tank for a capacity of 250,000 liters. Assume height of tank

floor as 12 m above ground level. Take the bearing capacity of soil as100

kN/m

2

. Wind pressure can be taken as 1200 N/m

2

or as per IS 875.

[14]

4. Design a flat slab with drop panels for a large single storey warehouse flat slab

roof with a panel size of 6 m x 6 m supported by columns of size 500 mm x 500

mm. The height of the columns is 5 m. Take live load as 3.0 kN/m

2

and the

weight of finishes including waterproof treatment as 2.5 kN/m

2

. Use M25

concrete and Fe 415 steel. Assume mild environment.

[14]

5. Design side walls and hopper bottom of a rectangular bunker of capacity 300

kN to store coal using M20 concrete and Fe 415 steel. Use unit weight of coal is

8 kN/m

2

.
