QUESTION: 1

### Khosla’s theory can be used for calculating which of the following?

Solution:

khosla’s theory has an account of flow pattern below the impermeable base of hydraulic structures, hence it can be used to calculate the uplift pressure and the gradient at the exit, called the exit gradient.

QUESTION: 2

### The failure of Naror weir in India was due to__________

Solution:

According to Leliavsky (1965), failure of Norora weir in India was due to excessive water pressure (uplift pressure) causing the floor to be blown upwards.

QUESTION: 3

### The hydraulic gradient theory of weir design was developed by__________

Solution:

In 1902, Col. Clibborn and Beresford developed the hydraulic gradient theory of weir design as a result of their experiment.

QUESTION: 4

A hydraulic structure should not be built on pervious soil, because of_________

Solution:

If a hydraulic structure is built on pervious soil, the higher water level at the upstream of the structure will cause seepage through the permeable soil.

QUESTION: 5

Undermining of the subsoil is due to __________

Solution:

According to the commonly accepted ideas , the undermining is supposed to result from piping ,that is , the erosion of the sub-soil by the high velocities of flow of water through it when such velocities exceeds certain limit.
