2 2015 PE Exam Standard Specification PE Civil Exam E-Book120-Mix Questions & Answers (pdf Format) For Breath Exam (Morning Session)

3 Breadth Exam (morning session): These practice exams are contained 120 mixed questions and answers of five civil engineering areas. The five covered areas are construction, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources & environment. Table Contents: No. of Problems Page I. Project Planning: 12 4 II. Means and Methods: 9 16 III. Soil Mechanics: IV. Structural Mechanics: V. Hydraulics and Hydrology: VI. Geometrics: 9 85 VII. Materials: VIII. Site Development: Total Number of Problems =120

4 I. Project Planning: Number of Questions-12 A. Quantity take-off methods B. Cost estimating C. Project schedules D. Activity identification and sequencing 1. PROBLEM (Quantity take-off methods) A borrow pit contour elevation has been shown in the figure; it has to be cut. What is the average volume cut from the borrow pit? a. V=8330 yd 3 b. V=5660 yd 3 c. V=7530 yd 3 d. V=4400 yd 3

5 1. SOLUTION: Volume, V= [h(i,j)n]x[a/(4x27)] h(i,j)= Height in ft above a datum surface at row i & column j n=number of corners, A= Area of grid in ft 2 Area of each grid, A=60x60=3600 ft 2 V=[( Height from BMxNo. of corners+..)] x [(A/(4x27)] V=[(4x1+5x2+6x2+9x1+7x2+5x1+9x2+8x4+4x1+7x3+3x1)] x [(3600/(4x27)] =132x [(3600/(4x27)]=4400 yd 3 Total Volume of Borrow pit, V=4400 yd 3 The Correct Answer is: (d)

6 20. PROBLEM (Temporary structures and facilities) Determine the Factor of Safety against heave a braced cut in clay soil shown in Figure. Where, Length of braced cut, L=15m, γ= 16 kn/m 3, Nc=5.14, Φ1 =0 o and c=40 kn/m 2. a 6.0 b 4.0 c 3.0 d SOLUTION: L=15m, B=4m, γ= 16 kn/m 3, Nc=5.14, c=40 kn/m 2 and Φ1 =0 o B/ 2=4/ 2= 2.828> T=2m Or, T=2m < B/ 2=2.828 Hence, B =T=2m and B = 2B =2.828 and surcharge, q=0.0 F.S=[Nc c{(1+0.2b /L)}+cH/B ]/( γh+q), F.S=[5.14 x 40{(1+0.2 x 2.83/15)}+40 x 5/2]/( 16 x 5+0.0) F.S= The Correct Answer is: (b)

7 33. PROBLEM (Bearing Capacity) Determine the ultimate load of a rectangular footing 6 x 4 with eccentric as shown in the Figure. Where, the Soil Unit Weight, γ= 118 lb/ft 3, Ultimate Bearing Capacity, q u=3000 lb/ft 2, eb=1.5 and el=1.75. a b c d 12.0 Kip 48.0 Kip 17.0 Kip 31.0 Kip 33. SOLUTION: Where, el/l=1.75/6= 0.292> 1/6, and eb/b=1.5/4= 0.375>1/6; Therefore, B1=B(1.5-3eB/B)= 4[(1.5-(3 x 1.5/4)]= 1.5 ft L1=L(1.5-3eL/L)= 6[(1.5-(3 x 1.75/6)]= ft Effective Area, A =1/2(L1B1)=1/2 (1.5 x 3.750)= 5.62 ft 2 q'u=3000 lb/ft 2 Qult= A x q'u= 5.62 x 3000= 16848=16.85 Kip Correct Solution is (c)

8 49. PROBLEM (Deflection) Determined the deflection of the referring rectangular beam. A 20 Kips point load P is acted at its free end. Where, concrete strength 3000 psi, crosssection of beam 10 x 16. a in b in c in d in 49. SOLUTION: Where, P=20 Kip, L=15 ft, B=10, H=16 and E=57000 fc = = psi/1000=3122 Ksi Moment of inertia, I=BH 3 /12= 10x16 3 /12=3413 in 4 Deflection at the tip, max=-pl 3 /3EI max =-20x(15x12) 3 /[3(3122x3413)]=-3.64 in The sign is negative, because the deflection is downward. The Correct Answer is: (c)

9 83. PROBLEM (Basic vertical curve elements) A vertical curve has required for ascending 3.5% and descending -1.5% grade, the design speed is 55 mph & the stopping sight distance is S=495 ft. Calculate the length of the vertical curve required for stopping sight distance. a ft b ft c ft d ft 83. SOLUTION: A=G2-G1= -1. 5% (+3.5%)= -5%=5% Assume S>L, S=495 ft L=2S-2158/A=2 x / 5= ft And L>S, L=AS 2 /2158=5 x /2158= ft is the correct length. The Correct Answer is: (d)

10 120. PROBLEM (Safety) According to OSHA, which of the following should be considered for the maximum deflection of a platform when loaded? a. The platform may not deflect more than 1/60 of the span. b. The platform may not deflect more than 1/50 of the span. c. The platform may not deflect more than 1/40 of the span. d. The platform may not deflect more than 1/30 of the span SOLUTION: The platform may not deflect more than 1/60 of the span. The Correct Answer is: (a)
