Environmental Engineering MCQ – Hydraulic Formulae

1 - Question

The flow of sewage in the sewers is independent of its slope and geometry.
a) True
b) False

View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: The flow of sewage in the sewers depends on flow condition, characteristic of sewage, slope and geometry of sewer, bends, transitions and roughness of the interior surface of sewer.




2 - Question

The expression of the Chezy’s formula is given by ____________
a) V = C/RS
b) V = CRS2
c) V = C (RS)1/2
d) V = C/ (RS)1/2

View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: Chezy’s formula is given by V = C (RS)1/2 where C is the Chezy’s constant, R is the hydraulic mean radius and S is the hydraulic gradient.

a) Plastic smooths
b) Asbestos cement
c) Brick
d) Cement concrete

View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: Plastic smooth has the minimum Manning’s coefficient in terms of the fair interior surface with a value of 0.011.




8 - Question

Which of the following is the expression of the Manning’s formula?
a) V = R1/3 S1/2/ N
b) V = R2/3 S2/ N
c) V = R2/3 S1/2/ N
d) V = R2/3 S1/2

View Answer
Answer: c
Explanation: The Manning’s formula is given by V = R2/3 S1/2/ N where V is the velocity of flow, ‘R’ is the mean hydraulic radius, ‘S’ is the slope of the sewer and ‘N’ is the rugosity coefficient.
