Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 1

### A single angle is connected by one leg only. If the area of outstanding leg is x, net area of connecting leg is y, and k is reduction factor whose value is less than 1, then the net effective area of angle in tension will be:

Detailed Solution for Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 1

Correct answer is C.

Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 2

### What is the effective net width of plate shown in figure for carrying tension?

Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 3

### Consider the following statements: Lug angles are used to 1. increase the lengths of the end connections of angle section. 2. decrease the lengths of the end connections of angle section. 3. increase the lengths of the end connections of channel section. 4. decrease the lengths of the end connections of channel section. Which of these statements are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 3

Lug angles are sometimes used to reduce the length of the connections. However their main purpose is to accommodate more number of rivets so that size of the gusset plate may be reduced.

Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 4

Failure of tension member is considered when either of following statement is true
1. Excessive elongation in member.
2. Rupture of critical section.
3. Buckling of member.
4. Shear block failure of end connection.

Detailed Solution for Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 4

The three criterion for failure has been considered in new code. Buckling takes place in compression members and not in tension members.

Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 5

In a tension member if one or more than one rivet hole are off the line, the failure of the member depends upon

Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 7

For double angles carrying tension placed back to back and connected to either side of the gusset plate, the sectional area of the section, is equal to gross sectional area of

Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 8

Match List-I (Type of stress) with List-ll (Allowable value of stress) and select the correct answer using the codes given below the lists:
(fy = minimum yield stress of steel)

Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 9

For a single section used as a tension member, the given area is assumed

Test: Tension Members - 2 - Question 10

A tension member, if subjected to possible reversal of stress due to wind or earthquake the slenderness ratio of the member should not exceed
