In Cement Mortar and Cement Concrete, the volume expands due to the unburnt lime (CaO) and Magnesia (MgO).

Le Chatelier Apparatus test is used to determine the presence of unburnt lime (CaO).

The cracks developed in the structure are mostly due to the unburnt lime because it increases the volume of the cement.

Lime and magnesia also react with water, and thus increase in volume occurs in the cement,

which is also a reason for cracks in the structures.

Hence, the correct option is (c).

QUESTION: 174

Study the following statements:

I. For constant w/c ratio, finer sand decreases the workability.

The correct statement (s) is/are

Solution: For a constant water/cementitious material ratio, an increase in the aggregate/cementitious material ratio will decrease workability; more cementitious material is needed when finer aggregate gradings are used. A fine aggregate deficiency results in a mixture that is harsh, prone to segregation, and difficult to finish. On the contrary, an excess of fine aggregate will lead to more permeable and less economical concrete, although the mixture will be easily workable.

Hence the correct answer is option C.

QUESTION: 181

The bond strength of concrete increases with

Solution: Convert that length into kilograms or Tons. This can be done by multiplying cross section area of steel by its total length by the section tip density of steel which 7850 kg/m3—total steel quantity of column equal to the sum of both main and stirrup steels.

Results show that up to 2% of rust increases the bond strength regardless of concrete strength and diameter of reinforcing bar like the existing data. It might result from the roughness due to rust. As expected, the bond strength increases as the compressive strength of concrete increases and the diameter of the bar decreases.

Hence the correct answer is option A.
