Dear student, we encourage you to answer the exam the best you can and we wish you all

Question 1: Enlist the number of materials used for sewer construction and explain the
advantage and disadvantage of any one of them.

Question 2: Determine designed discharge for a separate and combined system serving
population density 500 person/hectare with rate of water supply of 135 LPCD. The catchment
area is 100 hectares and the average coefficient of runoff is 0.65. The time of concentration for
the design rainfall is 25 min and the relation between intensity of rainfall and duration is
I = 1000/ (t + 20) mm/hr.

Question 3: Calculate quantity of water supplied from the water works in LPCD if the Net
quantity of sewage is 8x106 liter per day (LPD) under following conditions:
 City population is 48000 population
 1.5x106 liter per day addition due to unaccounted private water supplies.
 8% of municipal water supply Addition due to infiltration
 5% of municipal water supply water losses
 15% of municipal water supply not entering in the sewerage system

Question 4: Write advantages and disadvantages of combined sewer system.

Question 5: Calculate the diameter of the organic and inorganic particles having self-cleaning
velocity is 0.45 m/s.
K= constant, for clean inorganic solids = 0.04 and for organic solids = 0.06
f' = Darcy Weisbach friction factor (for sewers = 0.03)
Ss = Specific gravity of sediments = 2.65 for inorganic solid and 1.20 for organic solids
g = gravity acceleration
