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.

Timber Buildings !?

Timber Buildings !?  Why do we need a timber building? Yes, timber buildings. As on earth human population is on an exponential rise, many and many people are trying to get home in a city where they have easy excess for the workplace for their own living. In the near future, as the population gets more concentrated in cities more and more structures I mean Tall Structures need to be built. Loading Bearing and Comparison So now architects and builders have opted for old Technic of using timber as a building material eliminating concrete and steel. Yes, it is very hard to find this amount of trees but not impossible. It can be grown and regrown as needed. Many projects have been in progress of this idea and it reduces about 75% of carbon emission as compared to concrete and steel structure.

Using timber coming directly from the forest doesn't have the appropriate strength required for a high rise building. So designers came up with the new idea of CLT i.e. Cross Laminate Timber which …
