QUESTION: 1

Solution:
QUESTION: 2

Solution:
QUESTION: 3

### When the effect of wind or earthquake load is considered in the design of rivets and bolts for steel structures, by what percentage the permissible stresses may be exceeded?

Solution:
QUESTION: 4

What is the safe load Pthat can be transmitted by the fillet-welded joint shown in figure below if the safe allowable shear stress in the fillet weld is 108 MPa?

Solution:

The safe load that can be transmitted by the fillet welded joint is given by,

QUESTION: 5

A 6 mm thick mild steel plate is connected to an 8 mm thick plate by 16 mm diameter shop rivets. What is-the number of rivets required to carry an 80 kN load?

Solution:

For shop rivets permissible stresses are, In shearing, τs = 100 MPa
In bearing, σb = 300 MPa
The gross diameter of hole (D)
.= 16 + 1.5 = 17.5 mm

∴ Rivet value = 24.05 kN
Hence, number of rivets required

QUESTION: 6

For field rivets, the permissible stresses are reduced by what percentage?

Solution:
QUESTION: 7

What is the permissible tensile stress in bolts used for column bases (fy is the yield stress of the steel)?

Solution:

Permissible tensile stresses in bolts used for column bases is 120 N/mm2.

QUESTION: 8

Which one of the following is correct?
The permissible stresses in a weld are usually taken as

Solution:
QUESTION: 9

What is the ratio of the yield stress in power driven shop rivets relative to the permissible bearing stress of mild steel?

Solution:

The yield stress in power drive rivets is 200MPa and bearing stress of mild steel is 250MPa.
Thus, ratio
= 200/250
=0.8

QUESTION: 10

What is the maximum permissible longitudinal pitch in staggered riveted compression joints?

Solution:
