Design a footing for a rectangular column 230 ? 450 mm, carries an axial load of
1500 kN. The SBC of the soil is 150 kN/m2. Use M 20 concrete and Fe 415 steel.
A reinforced concrete column 500 ? 500 mm is subjected to a factored axial load
1500 kN and factored moment of 150 kN-m. Determine the reinforcement for the
column. Use M20 concrete and Fe 415 steel.
Write the basic assumptions made in design of continuous beam.
Design a conical dome for hall 12 m in diameter. Rise of dome is 4 m. Live load on the
dome may be taken as 2.5 kN/m2. Use M25 concrete and Fe 415 steel.
Why counterforts are provided in a retaining wall? Draw a counterfort retaining wall and
mark its components.

A staircase of 1.2 m width for an office building consists of each step built into wall with
a bearing of 110 mm along the flight with tread = 250 mm and rise = 200 mm. Design the
staircase and sketch layout of reinforcement. Use M20 concrete and Fe 415 steel.
Design a rectangular water tank resting on ground having base area of 4m ? 6m. The
height of water tank is 3.75 m and keep a free board of 0.15m. Use M25 concrete and Fe
415 steel. Assume appropriate data and clearly state the assumptions.
Write short note on :

a) Differentiate between isolated footing and combined footing.

b. Explain the basic assumptions made for design of short axially loaded compression


NOTE : Disclosure of Identity by writing Mobile No. or Making of passing request on any
page of Answer Sheet will lead to UMC against the Student.
