QUESTION: 1

A rectangular bar of cross sectional area 10000 mm^{2} is subjected to an axial load of 40 kN. Determine the normal stress on the section which is inclined at an angle of 30° with normal cross-section of the bar.

Solution:

\(\sigma = \frac{P}{A} = \frac{{40 \times 1000}}{{1000}} = 4\;MPa\)

Normal stress on inclined plane:

σ_{n} = BM' = R + R cos 60° = R(1 + cos 60)

σ_{n} = 2(1 + 0.5) = 3 MPa

**Some more important calculations which may be asked in exams:**

Shear stress on inclined plane:

\({\tau _s} = R\sin 60^\circ = \frac{{2 \times \sqrt 3 }}{2} = 1.732\;MPa\)

Maximum principal stress, σ_{1} = 4 MPa (θ = 0°)

Minimum principal stress, σ_{2} = 0 MPa (θ = 90°)

Radius of the Mohr circle R = σ_{1}/2 = 2 MPa

Maximum shear stress, τ_{max} = R = 2 MPa (θ = 45°)

QUESTION: 9

Use of strain rosette is to:

Solution:

Strain rosette can be defined as the arrangement strain gauge oriented at different angles. It only measures strain in one direction, to get principal strains, it is necessary to use a strain rosette.

Depending on the arrangement of strain gauges, strain rosettes are classified in to:-

1. Rectangular strain gauge rosette

2. Delta strain gauge rosette

3. Star strain gauge rosette

QUESTION: 10

A closed coil helical spring has 25 coils. If five coils of this springs are removed by cutting, the stiffness of the modified spring will

Solution:

K_{1}N_{1} = K_{2}N_{2}

QUESTION: 11

A tensile test is performed on a round bar. After fracture it has been found that the diameter remains approximately same at fracture. The material under test was

Solution:

In Brittle materials under tension test undergoes brittle fracture i.e there failure plane is 90° to the axis of load and there is no elongation in the rod that’s why the diameter remains same before and after the load. Example: Cast Iron, concrete etc

But in case of ductile materials, material first elongate and then fail, their failure plane is 45° to the axis of the load. After failure cup-cone failure is seen. Example Mild steel, high tensile steel etc.

QUESTION: 12

A rod of dimension 20 mm x 20 mm is carrying an axial tensile load of 10 kN. The tensile stress developed is ________.

Solution:

Stress= =25N/mm2=25MPa$

QUESTION: 13

A circular log of timber has diameter D. What will be the dimensions of the strongest rectangular section one can cut form this?

Solution:

For rectangular section:

The beam is strongest if section modulus is maximum

Dimensions of strongest beam

QUESTION: 14

QUESTION: 16

Effective length of a column effectively held in position and restrained in direction at one end but neither held in position nor restrained in direction at the other end is

Solution:

Given condition is “Effective length of a column effectively held in position and restrained in direction at one but neither held in position nor restrained in direction at the other end”

This implies one end fixed, other end free

l_{eFF} = 2L

QUESTION: 17

QUESTION: 18

A spherical vessel with an inside diameter of 2 m is made of material having an allowable stress in tension of 500 kg/cm^{2}. The thickness of a shell to with stand a pressure of 25 kg/cm^{2} should be:

Solution:

Allowable stress in spherical pressure vessel:

QUESTION: 19

The bending moment diagram of a simply supported beam with a point load at centre is:

Solution:

QUESTION: 20

At a point in beam, the principle stresses are 100 N/mm^{2} and 50 N/mm^{2}. The stress in x-direction is 65 N/mm^{2}. The stress in y-direction will be

Solution:

In beam there is only stress in x and y direction, there is no stress in z direction.

σ_{1} + σ_{2} = σ_{x} + σ_{y}

100 + 50 = 65 + σ_{y}

σ_{y} = 150 – 65 = 85 N/mm^{2}
