Which of the following load does not act on the considerable length of the beam?
Point load is that load which acts over a small distance. Because of concentration over small distance this load can may be considered as acting on a point. Point load is denoted by P and symbol of point load is arrow heading downward (↓).
Uniformly distributed load is that whose magnitude remains uniform throughout the length.
Uniformly Varying Load (Non – Uniformly Distributed Load): It is that load whose magnitude varies along the loading length with a constant rate.
Uniformly varying load is further divided into two types:

The total area under the stress-strain curve of a mild steel specimen tested up to failure under tension is a measure of its:
Strength is defined as the ability of the material to resist, without rupture, external forces causing various types of stresses. Breaking strength is the ability of a material to withstand a pulling or tensile force.
Toughness is defined as the ability of the material to absorb energy before fracture takes place. In other words, toughness is the energy for failure by fracture. Toughness is measured by a quantity called modulus of toughness. Modulus of toughness is the total area under a stress-strain curve in tension test, which also represents the work done to fracture the specimen.
Hardness is defined as the resistance of a material to penetration or permanent deformation. It usually indicates resistance to abrasion, scratching, cutting or shaping.
Stiffness or rigidity is defined as the ability of the material to resist deformation under the action of external load. Modulus of elasticity is the measure of stiffness.
What is the limit to Poisson's ratio?

Slenderness ratio ( λ ) of long column is defined as the ratio of Effective length of column to its least radius of gyration.
The neutral axis of a beam is subjected to _________ stress.
The neutral axis is an axis in the cross-section of a beam (a member resisting bending) or shaft along which there are no longitudinal stresses or strains. If the section is symmetric, isotropic and is not curved before a bend occurs, then the neutral axis is at the geometric centroid. All fibers on one side of the neutral axis are in a state of tension, while those on the opposite side are in compression.
