Continuing with the interview questions and answers as a part of job interview training …
1. How is the number of cells determined in case of concrete box girder bridges?
At the point when the depth of a box girder bridge surpasses 1/6th or 1/5th of the bridge width then the design prescribed is that of a solitary cell box girder bridge. In any case, on the off chance that the depth of the bridge is lower than 1/sixth of the bridge width than a twin-cell or at times multiple cells is the favored choice. One ought to likewise take note of that even in the instances of more extensive bridges where their depths are similarly low the quantity of cells ought to be minimized. This is because there is detectable very little change in the transverse load distribution when the number of cells of the box girder is higher than at least three.
2. In which year was the Keystone power plant in Indiana County constructed?
Commercial operation of unit 1 began in the year 1967.
3. What are the applications of the modulus of elasticity?
Modulus of elasticity is identified with the flexibility of the material. The modulus of elasticity value is truly vital if there should arise an occurrence of deflection of various materials utilized as a part of building construction.
4. Explain the difference between routine maintenance and major maintenance in case of school facilities?
Routine maintenance is taking care of the minor repairs of the school campus. Major maintenance could be total reconstruction or renovation of the school.
5. Why is pumping not used in case of concreting works?
Amid the pumping operation, the pump applied pressure must conquer any friction between the pumping pipes and the concrete, likewise the weight of the concrete and the pressure head when the concrete is put over the pumps. Since just water is pumped able, all the pressure produced is by the water that exists in the concrete. The real issue because of pumping is segregation impacts and bleeding. With a specific end goal to redress and decrease these impacts, for the most part, the extent of the cement is increased keeping in mind the end goal to build the cohesion, which prompts the lessening of segregation and bleeding.
Additionally, if an appropriate selection of the total evaluating can vastly enhance the concrete pump capacity.
We will see more of these in the upcoming parts. Check out this space for basic interview questions.
