Time: 3 hours Max Marks: 80Answer any FIVE questionsAll questions carry equal marks
1. An arch in the form of a parabola with its axis vertical has hinges at the abutments and thevertex. The abutments are at diﬀerent levels, the horizontal span being L and the heights of the vertex above the abutments being a and b. Show that the horizontal thrust due to a loadw/unit length uniformly distributed across the span is
2. A semicircular arch of radius R is subjected to a uniformly distributed load of w/unit lengthover the entire span. Assuming EI to be constant, determine the horizontal thrust.3. State the assumptions made in portal method of frame analysis and analyze the following frameby portal method of analysis. Draw the shear force diagram.4. Analyze the two span continuous beam as shown in the following diagram by the slope deﬂectionmethod and draw the shear force and bending moment diagrams. Take EI as constant.5. Analyse the continuous beam shown in ﬁgure by moment distribution method and draw bendingmoment diagram.
