This set of Environmental Engineering Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Hydraulic Formulae”.

1. State whether the following statement is true of false.

The flow of sewage in the sewers is independent of the its slope and geometry.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

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. The expression of the Chezy’s formula is given by

a) V = C/RS

b) V = CRS^{2}

c) V = C (RS)^{ 1/2}

d) V = C/ (RS)^{ 1/2}

View Answer

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.

c) 0.12

d) 0.13

View Answer

Explanation: When the condition of interior surface is good, the value of Kutter’s coefficient for cast iron is 0.012.

4. The value of manning’s coefficient for cement concrete is

a) 0.017

b) 0.13

c) 0.013

d) 0.17

View Answer

Explanation: When the condition of interior surface is good, the value of Manning’s coefficient for cement concrete is 0.013.

5. Which of the following conduit material has the maximum Kutter’s coefficient in terms of good surface?

a) Brick

b) Salt glazed stoneware

c) Cast iron

d) Galvanized iron

View Answer

Explanation: The unglazed brick has the maximum Kutter’s coefficient in terms of good surface with the value of 0.013.

6. The value of Bazen’s constant for good earthen channels is

a) 0.12

b) 1.54

c) 0.50

d) 3.17

View Answer

Explanation: When the type of inside surface of sewer is a good earthen channel, the value of Bazen’s constant is 0.50.

7. Which of the following has minimum manning’s coefficient in terms of fair interior surface?

a) Plastic smooths

b) Asbestos cement

c) Brick

d) Cement concrete

View Answer

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

8. Which of the following is the expression of the Manning’s formula?

a) V = R^{1/3} S^{1/2}/ N

b) V = R^{2/3} S^{2}/ N

c) V = R^{2/3} S^{1/2}/ N

d) V = R^{2/3} S^{1/2}

View Answer

Explanation: The Manning’s formula is given by V = R

^{2/3}S

^{1/2}/ 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.

9. Which of the following order is correct regarding Hazen and William’s coefficient?

1. Steel pipe

2. Cement lined pipe
