Detailed Solution for Test: Methods of Indeterminate Analysis - 3 - Question 6

Let the horizontal sway at A is Δ. So moment at ends A and C of column AC is
and  horizontal shear at C is
horizontal shear at support D is 
From equilibrium of horizontal forces. 

Test: Methods of Indeterminate Analysis - 3 - Question 7

What is the fixed end moment for the beam shown in the figure given below?

Detailed Solution for Test: Methods of Indeterminate Analysis - 3 - Question 7

As the beam and loading are symmetrical so fixed end moments will also be same. From Mohr’s theorem (the end rotations being zero) the area of free and fixed bending moment diagrams will be equal

Detailed Solution for Test: Methods of Indeterminate Analysis - 3 - Question 8

In statically determinate structure, structure develop no reactions on settlement while in Statically in determinate structure , structure develop reactions.

Test: Methods of Indeterminate Analysis - 3 - Question 9

A fixed beam of span L is carrying a point load P at its mid-span. If the moment of inertia of the middle half length is two times that of the remaining length, then the fixed end moments will be

Test: Methods of Indeterminate Analysis - 3 - Question 10

A rigid-jointed plane frame as shown below

Detailed Solution for Test: Methods of Indeterminate Analysis - 3 - Question 10

The frame will sway towards the side which has lesser I/L (relative stiffness).

Test: Methods of Indeterminate Analysis - 3 - Question 11

If a point load acting at the mid-span of a fixed beam of uniform section produces fixed end moments of 60 kN-m, then the same load spread uniformly over the entire span will produce fixed end moments equal to 

Detailed Solution for Test: Methods of Indeterminate Analysis - 3 - Question 11

’Fixed end'moment due to central point load,
M1 = PL/8 = 60 kNm
The fixed end moment due to uniformly distributed load is PL/12. Thus it is equal to 40 kN-m.
