            ( b ) What is an ideal transition curve and by what name it is generally called. A transition curve is required for a circular curve of 200-meter f radius, the gauge being 1.5 m. and max super elevation restricted to 15 cm. The transition restricted to 15 cm. The transition is to be designed for a velocity such that no lateral pressure is imposed on the rails and the rate of gain of radial acceleration is 30 cm / sec3 . Calculate the required length of transition.

            ( b ) A reinforced concrete pipe is of uniform thickness and 24 inches mean diameter. The loading from above may also be considered of uniformly distributed both loads having a value of 1600 Lbs per sq feet. If the pipe is 2 inches thick what maximum stress is induced. Draw the Bending moment diagram?
Q. 3 – ( a ) What are the material required for reinforced cement concrete structure of a multi  - storied building. Describe them in brief with specification.

If the pressure at the larger end of the pipe is 1kg / Cm2. Calculate the pressure on the other end. Neglect losses.
            ( b ) A bridge is to be constructed over a stream having a catchment area = 20 miles2 partly in plains and partly in hills. Portion in hills has a length of 1.7 miles and fall of 880 ft. and that in plains has a length of 5.7 miles and a fall of 244 ft. Calculate the flood discharge if co elf of discharge is 80 % and area factor 95 5 and value of constant for calculating time of concentration = 14 for hills and 6 for plains. One hr rain fall intensity may be assumed as 2.5’’.
