QUESTION: 1

### In case of single angles in tension connected by one leg only, the net effective area as per IS : 800 is Where a is net sectional area of connected leg and b is area of the outstanding leg.

Solution: QUESTION: 2

Solution:
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?
