Irrigation canals are generally aligned on-

Detailed Solution for Mock Test: SSC JE Civil Engineering (CE)- 11 - Question 105 Watershed canal or ridge canal:
• The dividing ridge line between the catchment areas of two streams (drains) is called the watershed or ridge canal.

• Thus, there is the main watershed (ridge line) between two major streams, which divides the drainage area of the two streams, as shown in figure below. Similarly, between a main stream and any of its tributary, there are subsidiary watersheds (ridge lines), dividing the drainage between the two streams on either side.

• The canal which is aligned along any natural watershed (ridge line) is called a watershed canal, or a ridge canal. Aligning a canal (main canal or branch canal or distributary) on the ridge ensures gravity irrigation on both sides of the canal.

• Since the drainage flows away from the ridge, no drainage can cross a canal aligned on the ridge. Thus, a canal aligned on the watershed saves the cost of construction of cross-drainage works.

Mock Test: SSC JE Civil Engineering (CE)- 11 - Question 173

Effective stress in a soil is the stress carried by the

Detailed Solution for Mock Test: SSC JE Civil Engineering (CE)- 11 - Question 173 Pore water present in the soil

Effective stress is the force at contact particles of soil but divided by total area. The contact area is very less between the particles here. It can not be obtained practically but we can calculate the effective stress by measuring total stress and pore water pressure.

Hence, the correct option is (B)
