### APPSC AEE Civil-Mechanical Model Questions-Books

AEE Written Examination contains 3 papers. Paper 2 is common paper for both Civil and Mechanical candidates. There will be 150 questions for 150 marks and you need to answer them in 150 minutes. Subject for this paper are Strength of Materials, Hydraulic Machines and Fluid Mechanics. Strength of Materials and Fluid Mechanics are very basic subjects for Civil and Mechanical branches candidates. You have to remember various formulae without any confusion.

For example: In Thin cylinder topic following formulae are there:
1) Hoop Stress = Pd/2t
2) Longitudinal Stress= Pd/4t
3) Shear stress= Pd/8t

All the questions in paper 2 will be in Objective Multiple choice type only. Solving old GATE, IES, UPSC papers will help you in scoring decent marks. Following are some example questions:

1) The maximum value of Poissions ratio is -----
1) 1
2) 0
3) 0.2
4) 0.7

2) The critical depth in rectangular channel is given by the relation ------
1) QT/gA=1
2) QT2 / gA2=1
3) QT3/ gA2=1
4) Q2T/ gA3=1

Paper - 3 Preparation and Model Questions:

In Paper 3, about 40 percent questions will be asked on problems and 60 percent on theory. But in Paper -2, 70 percent of the questions will be from problems and remaining 30 percent will be on theory topics.

Paper -3 Important Topics (Civil Engineering)
