GATE CE 2021

GATE CE 2021
GATE Exam is conducted by the Indian Institute of Technology and every year they rotate among them, such as in 2020 IIT Delhi conducted the GATE Exam and set the paper and as per the rounds, we see the 2021 GATE Exam should be conducted by the IIT Bombay. But there are chances that it may be IIT Bangalore. 
This competitive exam is conducted every in 1st week of February. The GATE Exam is for all engineering branches and all 26 papers are set. 
The Exam is of 100 marks which have 65 questions with MCQ and NAT type questions. The MCQ will have negative marking and NAT will not have negative marking. The 1 mark question will have a negative marking of 1/3 and 2 marks question will have 2/3 negative marking. 
GATE CE 2021

There are 2 sections,

1. Aptitude Test/General Reasoning
2. Engineering topics

The Engineering topic consists of major engineering subjects such as:

  • Applied Mathematics (10-15 Marks):

Differential Equations, Matrices are the most important and generally asked every year. For extra Probability Distribution and Numerical Methods should also be covered.

  • Geotechnical Engineering (12-16 Marks):

The MOST important subject for the exam is this one. Properties of Soil, Effective Stress Concept, Consolidation, Shear Strength, and Foundations (Shallow and Deep).

  • Environmental Engineering (10 Marks):

It is a really vast subject and many concepts are very easy to forget, so revise the topics regularly. Some repeated topics are BOD, COD, Hardness, Sedimentation Tanks, Water Treatment, and Sewage Treatment Plant.

  • Strength of Material (6-8 Marks):

Principal Stress and Strain, Deflection of Beams, Torsion of Shaft, and Euler's Critical load concept. Also, Structural Analysis and Steel Structures are also some of the favorite topics.

  • Transportation Engineering (5-10 Marks):

Geometric Design of Highway and Traffic Engineering is the most important and favorite questions. Also question from Airport and Railway Engineering can also come.

  • Survey (5-10 Marks):

Traverse Surveying, Leveling and Photogrammetry are few topics expected and not much concept is involved.

  • Fluid Mechanics (8-10 Marks):

Fluid Mechanics, Applied Hydraulics when combined together they form a huge syllabus with some scoring topics like Dynamics, Hydro-static Forces, Flow-through Pipes, and Open Channel, Impact of Jets, Specific Speed of Pumps and Turbines are top question topics.

  • RCC and Prestressed Concrete (5-8 Marks);

Its weight-age has been increased in recent years but some of the questions can be calculative. Shear, Spacing of Stirrups, T- Beams, Columns, Extreme Stresses, and Losses in Prestressed Concrete are generally asked in GATE.

General Aptitude (15 Marks) Same for all Branches:

General Aptitude has a huge weightage in GATE and the fixed 10 questions are relatively easy.
You can easily score in this section 10 marks. Apart from these, subjects like Hydrology, Irrigation, Structural Analysis, Design of Steel Structures, Mechanics, Construction Planning, and Project management also asked for this part which should not be skipped.

Great Man-Made River (GMR)

Libya's Great Man Made River: The Great Man-Made River in Libya is one of the most ambitious Civil Engineering Project in history of mankind.  In the year 1953, the Libya Government found out not only vast oil reserves but also vast quantity of fresh water locked under the strata, most of the water was trapped around 7000-30000 years ago which is divided in 4 different basins. The first basin is named Kufra basin which is neat Egypt Border which covers almost 35000 sq kilometer which is quite deep around 2000 m deep. The other basin is in Sirte Basin which cover 10000 sq kilometer, third in Murzuk Basin and the last in Jabal Fezzan Basin covering 4800 sq kilometers area.  The GMR project will be used to transfer water to North of the country to provide water for irrigation purpose for more than 6 million  people. This will be a changing point  for Libya and the Colonel Muammar Gaddafi called it the Eighth Wonder of World. The work started in 1984 of the project and estimated to be
