Solution:  QUESTION: 6

The approximate percentage of steel taken for lintels in the absence of detailed design is _______

Solution:

RCC work maybe in foundations, columns, lintels, beams, floor & slabs the estimate is prepared in cubic metres. In absence of detailed design, the percentage of steel reinforcement is taken for lentils 0.7 to 1% and foundation raft footing it is 0.5 to 0.8%.

QUESTION: 7

The limit state corresponding to deflection, cracking and vibrations are _______

Solution:

Limit state of serviceability refers to the ability of the structure at working loads it is the state of limit at which the structure undergoes heavy deflection which affects the finishes casting discomfort to the users.
