(iii) 1/180 of the smaller dimension in each panel and   for webs stiffened both vertically and horizontally with a horizontal stiffener at a distance from the compression flange equal to 2/5th of the distance from the compression flange to the neutral axis.

(iv) 1/180 smaller clear panel dimension and   when there is also a horizontal stiffener at the neutral axis, where d2 is twice the clear distance from the compression flange angles, or plate or tongue plate to the neutral axis.

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 5

Design of riveted joint is based on the assumption:

Detailed Solution for Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 5

Followings are the assumptions in the design of riveted connections:

i) Load is assumed to be uniformly distributed among all the rivets.

ii) Stress in plate is assumed to be uniform.

iii) Shear stress is assumed to be uniformly distributed over the gross area of rivets.

iv) Bearing stress is assumed to be uniform between the contact surfaces of plate and rivet.

v) Bending stress in rivet is neglected.

vi) Rivet hole is assumed to be completely filled by the rivet.

vii) Friction between plates is neglected.

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 6

The best arrangement to provide unified behaviour in built up steel column is by:

Detailed Solution for Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 6

Two rolled steel sections are connected to each other by lacing, battening, tie plates etc. Lacings (and even battens) are not the load carrying members, they are basically provided so that two columns which they attach work as single entity.

i) Lacing is generally preferred in case of eccentric loads. Flat bars are generally used for lacing. Angles, channels and tubular sections are also used for lacing of very heavily columns.

ii) Battening is normally used for axially loaded columns and in sections where the components are not far apart. Plates are used for battens.

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 7

The internal pressure coefficient on walls for buildings with large permeability is taken as:

Detailed Solution for Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 7

According to IS 875: Part 3

Buildings with medium and large openings - Buildings with medium and large openings may also exhibit either positive or negative internal pressure depending upon the direction of wind.

Buildings with medium openings between about 5 to 20 percent of wall area shall be examined for an internal pressure coefficient of +0.5 and later with an internal pressure coefficient of -0.5, and the analysis which produces greater distress of the members shall be adopted.

Buildings with large openings, that is, openings larger than 20 percent of the wall area shall be examined once with an internal pressure coefficient of -0.7 and again with an internal pressure coefficient of -0.7, and the analysis which produces greater distress on the members shall be adopted.

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 8

If the loaded length of span in meters of a railway steel bridge carrying a single track is 6 m, then impact factor is taken as:

Detailed Solution for Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 8

Impact factor is given by:

Where,

L = span

i.e, Impact factor lies between 0.5 and 1.0

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 9

If “Ib” is the moment of the inertia of the rolled beam section, “Ap” is the area of the cover plates in one flange and “h” is the distance between the centroid of the top and bottom flange plates, Moment of inertia of Built-up plate girder is given by:

Detailed Solution for Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 9

Moment of inertia of Built-up plate girder is given by:

Where,

I= is the moment of the inertia of the rolled beam section

A= is the area of the cover plates in one flange

h = is the distance between the centroid of the top and bottom flange plates

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 10

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 11

The beam sections in which the extreme fibre in compression can yield stress, but cannot develop the plastic moment of resistance, due to local buckling are classified as

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 12

If fillet weld is applied to the rounded toe of a rolled steel section having thickness of "t" at toe, the specified size of weld generally not to exceed

Detailed Solution for Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 12

Fillet weld is provided to square edges, the weld size should be at least 1.5 mm less than the edge thickness (i.e Thickness of thinner member – 1.5 mm)

For the rounded toe of a rolled section, the weld size should not exceed ¾ thickness of the section at the toe (i.e = 3/4th thickness of rolled section at toe)

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 13

If a plate with small hole is kept over another plate and the entire hole is filled with weld material, the welded joint is known as

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 14

A simply supported beam of rectangular section and span L is subjected to a concentrated load at the mid span. The length of the plastic hinge is–

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 15

Consider the following with respect to lacing for steel column:

1. It is required to resist a total transverse shear of 2.5 percent of the axial and bending stress.

2. The slenderness ratio of lacing bars shall not exceed 135.

3. For single lacing, effective length is the distance between the inner rivets of the bars.

4. For double lacing, effective length is the distance between the outer most rivets of the bars.

Which one of the above statements are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 15

(i) Total transverse shear (V) = 2.5% axial load.

(ii) Slenderness ration of lacing bars ≯ 145

(iii) For both single lacing and double lacing, effective length of lacing is taken as the distance between inner rivets.

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 16

Where, A1 – Area of connected leg

A2 – Area of outstanding leg

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 17

If a rolled steel flat designated as 55 I.S.F. 12 mm is used as lacing, then minimum radius of gyration will be ________.

Detailed Solution for Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 17

The minimum radius of gyration,

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 18

When two plates are placed end to end and are joined by two cover plates, the joint is known as _____.

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 19

According to IS 800 – 2007, the permissible bending stress in column base in case of Fe415 is:

Detailed Solution for Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 19

As per IS 800:2007, clause 11.3.3 the permissible bending stress in column base is 0.66 fy.

So, permissible bending stress is 0.66 x 415= 273.9 MPa

Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 20

The critical section for web crippling in case of flexure members is at:

Detailed Solution for Test: Steel Design- 2 - Question 20

High concentrated loads create large bearing stress concentration at the junction of web and flange. The web near the portion of stress concentration tends to fold over the flange. This type of local buckling phenomenon is called as web crippling. The rot of the fillet weld is critical section for web crippling.
