QUESTION: 1

### What is beam?

Solution:

Beam is a structural member subjected to transverse loads that is loads perpendicular to its longitudinal axis. The mode of deflection of beam is primarily by bending.

QUESTION: 2

### Structural members subjected to bending and large axial compressive loads are known as

Solution:

Structural members subjected to bending accompanied by large axial compressive loads at the same time are known as beam-column. A beam-column differs from column only by presence of eccentricity of load application, end moment, transverse load.

QUESTION: 3

### What is girt?

Solution:

Girt is horizontal member fastened to and spanning between peripheral column of industrial buildings. It is used to support wall cladding such as corrugated metal sheet.

QUESTION: 4

Members used to carry wall loads over wall openings are called

Solution:

Lintels are beam members used to carry wall loads over wall openings for doors, windows, etc.

QUESTION: 5

Load transfer by a beam is primarily by

Solution:

The load transfer by beam is primarily by bending and shear. The mode of deflection of beam is primarily by bending.

QUESTION: 6

What are spandrels?

Solution:

Spandrels are exterior beams at floor level of buildings, which carry part of floor load and exterior wall.

QUESTION: 7

Members used in bridges parallel to traffic are called

Solution:

Stringers are members used in bridges parallel to traffic to carry the deck slab. They will be connected by transverse floor beams.

QUESTION: 8

Match the Pair

Solution:

Joist is a member supporting roof in a building. Girder is a major floor beam in building. Tie is tension member in roof truss and rafter is a member supporting purlin.

QUESTION: 9

Which of the following statement is correct?

Solution:

Beams may be termed as simply supported beams when end condition do not carry any end moments from any continuity developed by connection. A beam is called continuous beam when it extends continuously across more than two supports. A fixed beam has its ends rigidly connected to other members, so that moments can be carried across the connection.

QUESTION: 10

Complex stresses may occur when

Solution:

Complex stresses may arise when loads are inclined to principal axes, when unsymmetrical sections are used or when large values of shear and bending moment occur at section.
