The style, Quality and concept of the solutions for previous GATE (1987-2018) questions of CIVIL Engineering, will encourage the reader, especially the student whether above average, average or below average to learn the concept and answer the question in the subject without any tension. However, it is the reader who should confirm this and any comments and suggestions would be pleasantly received by the Academy.
This book contains below mentioned subject wise and chapter wise previous GATE Questions with Solutions.
- Engineering Mechanics
2. Solid Mechanics (Strength of Materials)
3. Structural Analysis
4. Construction Materials & Management
5. Reinforced Cement Concrete
6. Steel Structures
7. Geotechnical Engineering
8. Fluid Mechanics & Hydraulic Machines
11. Environmental Engineering
12. Transportation Engineering
13. Geomantic Engineering (Surveying)
The student should not miss to go through the solutions for conventional questions asked prior to 2003, as more concepts are brought out in term that will facilitate to answer numerical answer questions, Common data and linked answer questions, if any, easily.
The student is advised to solve the problems without referring to the solutions. The student has to analyse the given questions carefully, identify the concept on which the question is framed, recall the relevant equations, find out the desired answer, verify the answer with the final key such as (a), (b), (c), (d), then go trough the hints to clarify his answer. This will help to face numerical answer questions, better. The student is advised to have a standard text book ready for reference to strengthen the related concepts, if necessary. The student is advised not to write the solution steps in the space around the question. By doing so, he loses an opportunity of effective revision.
As Observed in the GATE – 16, Number of sets may be possible, being online exams. Hence, don’t skip any subject. All are the equally important.
It is believed that this book is a valuable aid to the student’s appearing for competitive exams like IES, JTO, DRDO, ISRO and other PSUs. This book can also be used by fresh teachers in Engineering in improving their Concepts.
Mathematics & general Aptitude Previous Questions & Solutions of GATE of all branches are available in separate booklets.
With best wishes to all those who wish to go through the following pages.
