Answer any FIVE Questions
All Questions carry equal marks

1. (a) Briefly explain the max. principal stress theory.

(b) A certain type of steel has proportionality limit of 270N/mm2 (tensile), 60N/mm2 (tensile) and
30N/mm2 (compressive). Find the factor of safety according to max. principal stress theory.
2. (a) What are springs and where they are used?
(b) How many types of springs are there? Explain the behaviour of each type.
(c) Give examples of the use of various types of springs? [6+6+4]
3. An R.S.Tee-section, 150mm wide × 75mm deep, thickness of flange 9mm, thickness of web 8.4mm, is
used as a strut, 3 metre 4 long, ends hinged.Calculate the safe axial load by Rankines formula, using
a factor of safety of 3. Rankines constants, f c = 315N/mm2 ; a = 1/ 7500. [16]
4. A short vertical pillar has a section of uniform thickness in the form of a hollow square of side 120 mm
externally and 80 mm internally. A vertical load of 210 KN is applied at a distance of 60 mm from
the central axis of the pillar and on one of the diagonals of the square. What is the maximum stress
on the cross-section? [16]
5. A cylindrical chimney shaft of a hollow circular section, 2.50 metres external diameter, 1 metre internal
diameter, is 30 metres high. If the horizontal intensity of wind pressure varies as X 2/3 where X is the
vertical height above the ground, calculate the overturning moment at the base due to the force of
wind pressure, taking the coefficient of wind-resistance as 0.6. Given that the horizontal intensity of
wind pressure at a height of 20 metres is 1KN/m2 . If the weight of masonry is 22.5KN/m3 , calculate
the extreme intensities of stress at the base. [16]
6. A simply-supported beam of T-section (100 × 150 × 20mm) carries a load P at center of 2.5m span.
The load line is inclined at 30’ to the vertical and passes through c.g If the max. Compressive stress
is not to exceed 75N/mm2 , and the max tensile stress is not to exceed 35N/mm2 , find the max load
P which the bean can carry. [16]
7. (a) Where do you use beams curved in plan?
(b) A circular beam is loaded uniformly and supported an symmetrically placed Columns. If W is
the load per unit length, R, the radius, derive expressions for S.F B.M and tossional moment at
a point P, at an angle φ from one support.
8. A uniformly loaded circular beam is supported on equally placed columns. Derive expressions for
max.values of S.F, B.M. and torsional moment. Obtain salient values in the case of 6 supports. [16]
