Free Sample of Dangote Refinery Past Questions And Answers


1. A reed type tachometer use the principle of
A. Longitudinal vibration
B. Torsional vibration
C. Transverse vibration
D. Damped free vibration
Answer: Option C

2.The lower pairs are _________ pairs.
A. Self-closed
B. Force-closed
C. Friction closed
D. None of these
Answer: Option A

3. In a coupling rod of a locomotive, each of the four pairs is a ________ pair.
A. Sliding
B. Turning
C. Rolling
D. Screw
Answer: Option C

A coupling rod in a locomotive is a crucial component that connects the driving wheels of the locomotive. It plays a vital role in transmitting motion from the piston to the wheels. The question is asking about the type of pair formed by each connection between the coupling rod and the driving wheel.
A coupling rod forms a rolling pair with the driving wheel. In a rolling pair, the relative motion between the components involves pure rolling, where one component rolls over the surface of the other without any sliding or slipping. This is an essential characteristic for efficient power transmission and reduced wear and tear in locomotives.
While the locomotive is in operation, the coupling rod experiences complex motion due to the varying forces and angles involved. However, the primary mode of relative motion between the coupling rod and the driving wheel is rolling, which ensures smoother operation and improved efficiency of the locomotive’s power transmission system.

4. A kinematic chain is known as a mechanism when
A. None of the links is fixed
B. One of the links is fixed
C. Two of the links are fixed
D. None of these
Answer: Option B

A kinematic chain is a combination of links connected in a specific order, allowing relative motion between them. When one of the links in a kinematic chain is fixed or stationary, it is termed a mechanism. This fixed link provides a frame of reference against which the motions of other links are observed. The fixed link is often referred to as the “ground” or “frame” link, and it serves as a foundation for the movement and analysis of the remaining links in the kinematic chain.
By fixing a single link, the entire kinematic chain becomes a functional system with controlled or constrained motion. This is a fundamental concept in the study of mechanisms, which are essential components in various mechanical devices and machines used in engineering applications.
Note: Options A and C are not accurate because the presence of fixed links is essential to define a mechanism. Option D is also not correct as one of the options (Option B) is indeed the correct condition for a kinematic chain to be termed a mechanism.

10.A three hinged arch is generally hinged at its supports and
A. At one quarter span
B. At the crown
C. Anywhere in the rib
D. None of these
Answer: Option B

A three-hinged arch is a structural form used in civil engineering to efficiently distribute loads and resist bending moments. It consists of three hinges, which allow rotation at the supports to accommodate the arch’s deformation under load. The three hinges are located at the supports and at the crown of the arch.
The crown of an arch refers to the highest point along the arch’s curve, where the arch is subjected to compressive forces. Placing a hinge at the crown allows the arch to rotate and adapt to changes in loading and deformation. This rotational flexibility is crucial for the arch’s stability and ability to carry loads without excessive stress.
Note: Options A, C, and D are not accurate descriptions of the typical hinge locations in a three-hinged arch. The correct configuration involves hinges at the supports and at the crown to ensure proper load distribution and structural performance.
