# Civil Engineering Interview Questions Part – 1

Jan 20, 2018

Question No. 01
What is civil engineering?
Answer: Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering is arguably the oldest engineering discipline. It deals with the built environment and can be dated to the first time someone placed a roof over his/her head or laid a tree trunk across a river to make it easier to get across.

Question No. 02
What does civil engineering do?
Answer: They do many interesting things. Their job has to do a lot with design and construction. They can tell you what works and what will not for all sorts of situations. There is a lot of mathematics involved along with many other disciplines. They have to have a good solid understanding of how the environment works and how nature interacts with manmade. They are probably best known for designing bridges, interstates, skyscrapers, canals, and so forth.

Question No. 03
What is the difference between shear and tensile strength?
Answer: Tensile Strength for a Bolt is determined by applying a Force along it long axis. Shear Strength for a Bolt is determined by applying a Force across its diameter, as it would be loaded in a lug joint.

Question No. 04
What are the materials used in building a gravity dam?
Answer: There are many gravity dams constructed of compacted earth. High dams are generally concrete. All dams require a spillway to be safe. The spillway must be armored.

Question No. 05
What does civil status mean?
Answer: Civil means like, when you do not get on with someone, but only talk when you have to. Alternatively, when you do talk you do not argue. Alternatively, if you are with someone who is of your both friends and family, you do not ruin it for them.
