Q.1. The degree of static indeterminacy of the plane frame as shown in the figure is______    
[2019: 1 Mark, Set-II]
Determinacy and Indeterminacy Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
Solution. 
Dse = 7-3 = 4
Dsi = (3 x 4)-(2--1)= 11
Ds = 15

Q.2.  Consider the frame shown in the figure
Determinacy and Indeterminacy Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
If the axial and shear deformations in different members of the frame are assumed to be negligible, the reduction in the degree of kinematic indeterminacy would be equal to    [2017: 1 Mark, Set-II]
(a) 5
(b) 6
(c) 7
(d) 8
Ans.
(b)
Solution. 
DOF of Joints:
Determinacy and Indeterminacy Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
When all members are extensible,
Determinacy and Indeterminacy Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
Dk (when extensible) = 14
Dk(when inextensible) = Dk (when extensible) - No. of axially rigid member
= 14 - 6 = 8
So, reduction in Determinacy and Indeterminacy Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev

Note : Shear deformation is not considered in calculation of DK.


Q.3. A planar truss tower structure is shown in the figure.
Determinacy and Indeterminacy Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
Consider the following statements about the external and internal determinacies of the truss.
P. Externally Determinate
Q. External Static indeterminacy = 1
R. External Static Indeterminacy = 2
S. Internally Determinate
T. Internal Static Indeterminacy = 1
U. Internal Static Indeterminacy = 2
Which one of the following options is correct?    [2017: 2 Marks, Set-I]
(a) P-False; Q-True; R-False; S-False; T-False; U-True
(b) P-False; Q-True; R-False; S-False; T-True; U-False
(c) P-False; Q-False; R-True; S-False; T-False; U-True
(d) P-True; Q-True; R-False; S-True; T-False; U-True
Ans.
(a)
Solution. Dse= re - 3 - s = 4 - 3 = 1
Dsi = m -(2j - 3) = 15 - (2 x 8 - 3)
= 2
Trick : For a truss formed due to combination of simple triangles.
Dsi = No. of double diagonal panels = 2
Dse = R - 3 = 4 - 3 = 1

Question 1:The kinematic indeterminacy of the plane truss shown in the figure is    
[2016: 1 Mark, Set-II]
Determinacy and Indeterminacy

Question 2:A guided support, as shown in the figure below, is represented by three springs (horizontal, vertical and rotational) with stiffness kx, ky and ke respectively. The limiting values of kx, ky and ke are   [2015: 1 Mark, Set-II]
Determinacy and Indeterminacy

Question 3:The static in determinacy of the two-span continuous beam with an internal hinge, shown below, is ____________.    [2014: 1 Mark, Set-II]
Determinacy and Indeterminacy

Question 4:The degree of static indeterminacy of a rigid jointed frame PQR supported as shown in figure is    [2014: 1 Mark, Set-I]
Determinacy and Indeterminacy
