You all must be worried about completing your syllabus before the GATE 2017 on time so that you can start revising and taking online test series for better hands-on practice but before you rush towards completing your syllabus as soon as possible have a look at our analysis that we did on last 5-6 year Civil engineering GATE exam. Have a look at what we have found.
Analysis of GATE exam for Civil Engineering 2010 – 2015
|Name of the Subject||2010||2011||2012||2013||2014||2015|
|Fluid Mechanics & Hydraulics||7||1||7||5||6||11|
|Hydrology & Irrigation||5||13||8||10||8||5|
|General Aptitude (GA)||–||15||15||15||15||15|
From this analysis, you can now estimate that what is being more frequent in GATE for civil engineering exam. Also, this will help you to what you can avoid as well so that better time utilisation can be done. You can’t avoid subjects like General aptitude, Geo-Technical Engineering, Engineering Maths & Environmental engineering but you can do or leave any other subject in which you think you are not that much handy according to your wish and capacity.
Now, the important topics which need to be focussed on in every key subject of Civil Engineering from GATE point of view are as follows:
|Geo-Technical Engineering||Soil Mechanics (Consolidation, Permeability, Slope Stability, Index properties) Foundation Design,Concrete Technology|
|Environmental Engineering||Quality standards,Domestic wastewater treatment, air pollution meteorology|
|Transportation Engineering||Highway Engineering, Transportation Infrastructure,Geometric design of railway track|
|Fluid Mechanics & Hydraulics||Fluid statics, Kinematics, Dynamics, Laminar-Turbulent Flow, Pipe Flow, Open Channel Flow Hydraulics|
|Concrete Structures||Working stress, Limit state and Ultimate load design concepts; Design of beams, Bond and development length; Pre-stressed concrete|
|Hydrology & Irrigation||Hydrologic cycle, ground water hydrology -steady state well hydraulics,Canal regulatory works, cross-drainage structures,|
|Mechanics||System of forces, free-body diagrams,Euler’s equations of motion;|
|Structural Mechanics||Statically determinate and indeterminate structures by force/ energy methods; Method of superposition; Analysis of trusses|
|Steel Structures||Working stress and Limit state design concepts; Design of tension and compression members, Connections – simple and eccentric, Plastic analysis of beams and frames.|
|Surveying||Basics of Geographical information system (GIS) and Geographical Positioning system (GPS).|
This will help you to manage your study for GATE 2017 and will let you focus on the key aspects so that you dont forget to practice importatn topics.
