Re: GPSC exam for civil engineer

As far as my knowledge the engineering services examination and Indian Engineering service examination is conducted by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC). I am providing you the previous year question paper of the examination for civil engineering stream students. You can well prepare for your upcoming examination with the question paper provided. For your assistance I am sharing some of the questions from the question paper.

The rest of the questions can be had from the link given.

01. Consider the following parameters with regards to slenderness ratio of a compression member:
1. Material 2. Sectional configuration
3. Length of member 4. Support end conditions

On which of these parameters does the slenderness ratio of a compression member depend?
(a) 1,2 and 3 only (b) 1,3 and 4 only
(c) 2,3 and 4 only (d) 1,2,3 and 4
Ans: (c)

02. Two equal angles, each being ISA 100 mm × 100 mm of thickness 10 mm, are placed back-to-back and connected to either side of a gusset plate through a single row of 16
mm diameter rivets in double shear. The effective areas of the connected and unconnected legs of each of these angles are 775mm2 and 950 mm2 respectively. If these angles are not tack-riveted, the net effective area of this pair of angles is
(a) 3650 mm2 (b) 3450 mm2
(c) 3076 mm2 (d) 2899 mm2
Ans: (d)

03. When the effect of wind or earthquake load is taken into account in the design of ariveted connection, the permissible stresses in rivets may be exceeded by
(a) 16.66% (b) 33.33% (c) 25% (d) 50%
Ans: (c)

04. A mild steel flat subjected to a tensile force of 840 kN is connected to a gusset plate using rivets. If the permissible forces required per pitch length
(i) to shear a single rivert,
(ii) to crush the rivet and
(iii) to tear the plate are 50 kN, 80 kN and 60 kN respectively, then the number of rivets required is
(a) 12 (b) 14 (c) 16 (d) 17
Ans: (d)

05. The effective throat thickness of a fillet weld depends upon
(a) angle between fusion faces (b) length of weld
(c) permissible shear stress (d) type of wel
Ans: (a)

06. When the load line coincides with the centroid of the rivet group, the rivets are subjected to
(a) shear only (b) tension only
(c) bending only (d) shear as well as tension

Ans: (a)

07. A column member of length l which cannot sway has a rigid foundation at its bottom. Its
top is held with heavy beams. The effective length of the column is
(a) 1.5 l (b) 1.0 l (c) 0.8 l (d) 0.65 l
Ans: (d)
