Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Aggregates should conform to PNS or ASTM standards and must be well-graded, easy workability and method of consolidated are such that the concrete can be poured without honeycomb or voids. What is the nominal maximum size of a coarse aggregate when working spaces between reinforcements for proper bonding?

    • A.

      A. Course aggregates shall be no larger than ½ the minimum clear spacing between individual reinforcing bars or wires, bundles of bars, or prestressing tendons or ducts

    • B.

      B. Course aggregates shall be no larger than 5/8 the minimum clear spacing between individual reinforcing bars or wires, bundles of bars, or prestressing tendons or ducts

    • C.

      C. Course aggregates shall be no larger than 7/8 the minimum clear spacing between individual reinforcing bars or wires, bundles of bars, or prestressing tendons or ducts

    • D.

      D. Course aggregates shall be no larger than ¾ the minimum clear spacing between individual reinforcing bars or wires, bundles of bars, or prestressing tendons or ducts

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Course aggregates shall be no larger than ¾ the minimum clear spacing between individual reinforcing bars or wires, bundles of bars, or prestressing tendons or ducts
    Explanation
    The correct answer states that the coarse aggregates should be no larger than ¾ the minimum clear spacing between individual reinforcing bars or wires, bundles of bars, or prestressing tendons or ducts. This means that the size of the coarse aggregates should be smaller than three-fourths of the spacing between the reinforcements. This is important for proper bonding between the concrete and the reinforcements, as larger aggregates can create voids or honeycomb in the concrete, which can weaken the bond. Therefore, the correct answer ensures that the aggregates are of an appropriate size to ensure proper bonding and prevent any issues with the concrete structure.

    The given description describes a machine bolt, which is a threaded bolt with a straight shank and a conventional head. Expansion bolts are different as they have a mechanism to expand and anchor into the material. Expansion shields are also different as they are used to provide support for screws or bolts in hollow walls. Toggle bolts are another type of anchor that uses a spring-loaded toggle to provide support. Therefore, the correct answer is d. Machine bolt.

      C. Toggle bolts

    • D.

      D. Machine bolt

    Correct Answer
    A. A. Expansion bolts
    Explanation
    Expansion bolts are anchoring devices that have an expandable socket. As the bolt is tightened into the socket, it swells, creating a secure attachment. These bolts are commonly used in masonry walls for attaching timbers. Expansion shields are similar but are not specifically designed for masonry walls. Toggle bolts and machine bolts are different types of fasteners that do not have an expandable socket.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. figured wired glass
    Explanation
    Figured wired glass is a type of opaque glass that is commonly used to construct doors with glass panels. It is designed to allow natural light to pass through while maintaining privacy. The glass has a patterned or textured surface with embedded wire mesh, making it resistant to shattering or breaking. This makes it a suitable choice for areas where safety is a concern, such as commercial buildings or public spaces. Smoked glass, etched glass, and bevel glass do not provide the same level of opacity or safety features as figured wired glass.

    When the soil beneath a building is not well drained, it is necessary to prevent dampness from seeping into the concrete slab. Bituminous felt is the best material to use in this situation. Bituminous felt is a waterproofing material that is commonly used to protect buildings from moisture. It is made from a combination of bitumen and a fibrous material, such as fiberglass or polyester. This material is highly resistant to water and provides an effective barrier against dampness, making it the ideal choice for installation beneath a concrete slab in poorly drained soil.
