GATE Prev Year : Transportation Engineering-2

Question 1

In the context of flexible pavement design, the ratio of contact pressure to tyre pressure is called the Rigidity Factor. This factor is less than unity when they tyre pressure is

  • Aless than 0.56 N/mm2
  • Bequal to 0.56 N/mm2
  • Cequal to 0.7 N/mm2
  • Dmore than 0.7 M/mm2

Question 2

Aggregate impact value indicates the following property of aggregates

  • ADurability
  • BToughness
  • CHardness
  • DStrength

Question 3

Which of the following stress combinations are appropriate in identifying the critical condition for the design of concrete pavements?
Type of Stress
P. Load
Q. Temperature

1) Corner
2) Edge
3) Interior

  • AP–2, Q–3
  • BP–1, Q–3
  • CP–3, Q–1
  • DP–2, Q–2

Question 4

A vehicle moving at 60 kmph on an ascending gradient of a highway has to come to stop position to avoid collision with a stationary object. The ratio of lag to brake distance is 6:5. Considering total reaction time of the driver as 2.5 seconds and the coefficient of longitudinal friction as 0.36, the value of ascending gradient (%) is

  • A3.3
  • B4.8
  • C5.3
  • D6.8
