8. Write short notes on Hair pin bend?


A hair pin bend should he located on the hill side having the minimum slope and maximum stability It should be sate against land slide and ground water. Hair pin bends with long arms and further spacing should he provided.


9. What are the methods of pavement?

1. Flexible pavement

2. Rigid pavement


10.        What are the components of a fallible pavement?

1. Soil sub grade

2. Sub base course

3. Base course

4. Wearing course


11.        Define sub grade?


The soil sub grade in a layer of natural soil prepared to receive the other lays of the pavement.

12.               What properties posses soil sub grade? a. strength


b. Drainage


c.  Ease of compaction

d. permanency of compaction etc.
