BEST STUDY MATERIAL FOR GATE CIVIL ENGINEERING
When it comes to preparation for the GATE exam 2022, the prerequisite and the must have part is a good study material. If you are a person self-preparing for GATE exam after your B Tech, you may have a dozen text books of your UG course.
Referring standard textbooks is always good in preparation but this should be done only for some doubt clearance or when you want to know more about a topic. This is because textbooks are deep and vast and not filtered as per the GATE exam requirement. This can also fetch you a good score in GATE, but the time taken for that would be twice or thrice the time you need to spend with a good and tailor made study material.
Thus, a complete and an exam focused material is a high-priority in the successful preparation of GATE exam.

|6||Construction Material and Management|
Engineering Mechanics is an easy-to-score subject and the syllabus of this subject is also limited. The expected weightage of this subject is 1 to 2 marks. It has been divided into 8 Chapters namely Forces and moment system, Properties of bodies, Friction, Kinematics of particle, rectilinear and curvilinear motion, Kinematics of rigid bodies fixed axis rotation & general plane motion, Kinematics of particle and rigid body, Work energy principle and impulse momentum equation and Virtual work.

This subject carries a weightage of 5 to 7 marks. It is important to know what is more important to study in this subject. This has been divided into 13 Chapters. They are Simple stresses and strains, Complex stresses and strains, Shear force and bending moment, Theory of simple bending, Centroid and moment of inertia, Shear stress distribution, Torsion, Slopes and deflections, Columns and struts, Shear centre, Strain energy, Theory of failures and Springs.
The topics we study for UG degree in this subject is plenty when compared to that required for GATE. Selective study is much important in this subject as well. The weightage for this subject is 3 to 5 marks. It has been divided into 15 Chapters namely Materials and testing, Comparison of WSM, ULM and LSM, Design of singly reinforced rectangular sections in LSM, Design of doubly reinforced beams in LSM, Design of flanged sections in LSM, Limit state of collapse – Shear, Limit state of collapse- Torsion, Bond, Slabs, Limit state of collapse- Compression, Footings, Limit state of serviceability: Deflection and cracking, Fundamentals of pre-stressed concrete, Analysis of pre-stressed concrete members and Losses in pre-stressed concrete.
Here you have to be very much choosy on what you have to prepare. The contents in this book have been judiciously filtered in that way. The subject carries a weightage of 2 to 3 marks. It has been divided into the following 11 Chapters: Material and specification, Riveted and bolted connections, Welded connections, Design of tension members, Column bases, caps and column splices, Design of compression members, Design of beams, Design of plate girders, Design of gantry girders and Roof trusses.
This subject carries a weightage of 5 to 7 marks. The whole subject has been sorted into 10 Chapters namely Static and kinematic indeterminacy, Method of structural analysis, Analysis of trusses, Energy theorems, Moment distribution method, Slope deflection method, Plastic theory, Moving loads and influence lines, Arches, and Matrix method.
CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL AND MANAGEMENT
This subject deals with the materials of construction and also the techniques used in construction management. It has a weightage of 2 to 3 marks. The subject has been classified into 6 Chapters. They are: Structural steel, Concrete, Bricks and mortar, Timber, Bitumen and Construction management.
Geotechnical engineering which carries the highest weightage occupies the first place in the order of importance for preparation of GATE exams. It has to be prepared without skipping any topics. This subject has a weightage of 13 to 14 marks. The subject has been sorted into 18 Chapters namely Origin of soil, Clay mineralogy and soil structure, Basic definitions and properties of soil, Index properties of soil – Particle size analysis, Index properties of soil – Consistency limit, Soil Classification, Permeability of soil, Effective stress, Seepage analysis, Stress distribution in soil, Consolidation, Compaction, Shear strength, Earth pressure theories, Stability of slopes, Shallow foundation, Deep foundations and Sub-surface investigation.
The weightage of Fluid mechanics ranges from 8 to 10 marks. This comes under the second set of important subjects after Geotechnical and Environmental engineering in the case of core subjects of Civil. This subject consist of 12 Chapters which are: Properties of fluid, Pressure measurements, Buoyancy and metacentric height, Fluid kinematics, Fluid dynamics, Viscous flow, Turbulent flow, Flow through pipes, Boundary layer theory, Impact of jets, Dimensional analysis and Open channel flow.
Hydrology carries a weightage of 2 to 4 marks. It consists of 6 Chapters which includes: Hydrologic cycle, Precipitation, Losses in precipitation, Runoff, Flood estimation and Ground water hydrology.
We can expect questions for 1 to 2 marks from Irrigation engineering. This subject is divided into 8 Chapters. They are: Irrigation – types and methods, Crops – types & water requirements, Diversion head works, Canal types, Cross drainage works, Quality of irrigation water, Dams and Spillways, canal falls.
The second most important subject for GATE exam after Geotechnical engineering is Environmental engineering. In this subject you can get questions counting to 10 to 12 marks. The whole subject has been sorted into 14 Chapters namely Water demands, Population forecasting, Sources and conveyance of water, Quality parameters of water, Treatment of water, Water distribution system, Miscellaneous water treatment, Characteristics of sewage, Design of sewage system and sewer appurtenances, Sewage treatment, Disposal of sewage effluent, Sludge treatment and disposal, Solid waste management and Air pollution and control.
- TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING
Questions from Transportation engineering are usually asked for 7 to 10 marks. The subject is mostly theoretical and is among the second set of important subjects for GATE like fluid mechanics. This subject in this book is divided into 14 Chapters. They are Highway alignment and surveys, Highway geometric design, Gradient, Horizontal curves, Set back distance and curve resistance, Transition curve, Vertical curves – Summit curve, Vertical curves – Sag curves, Highway materials & testing, Pavement design, Traffic engineering, Railway engineering and Airport engineering.
Here you can expect questions for 4 to 6 marks. The subject itself is very vast and doesn’t carry much weightage when comparing with the volume of the topics. Hence, it’s better to adopt a selective study approach for the subjects. In this book, Geomatics engineering has been divided into 12 Chapters namely Fundamentals of survey, Linear measurements and chain surveying, Compass survey, Plane table survey, Theodolite, Traversing, Tacheometry, Levelling, Contouring, Areas and volumes, Curves and Advanced surveying.
Apart from Civil engineering subjects, one of the very important subjects for GATE is Engineering Mathematics. It carries a fixed and sure shot weightage of 13 marks every year for GATE exam. The subject has been sorted into 5 Chapters. It includes: Linear algebra, Calculus, Ordinary differential equation, Partial differential equation and Probability and statistics.
Quantitative aptitude is a part of General Aptitude (GA) and in this book it has been divided into 4 Chapters namely Applied probability, Data interpretation, Percentage exercise and Ratio, proportion and partnership.
Reasoning is also a part of General Aptitude (GA) and this subject is sorted into 2 Chapters. They are: Analytical aptitude and Spatial aptitude
English or Verbal Aptitude is also a part of General Aptitude. This has been divided into 13 Chapters. They are: Tense, Articles, Adjectives, Conjunctions, Idioms and phrases, proverbs, Words, Adverbs, Prepositions, Concord, Nouns, Pronouns, Verbs and Reading and comprehension / critical reasoning.
The General Aptitude which comprises of Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning and Verbal Ability has a fixed weightage of 15 marks every year for GATE exams.
WHY THIS BOOK?
