1. (a) How are arches classi\ufb01ed based on shape and end conditions?
(b) State and prove Eddy\u2019s theorem.

2. A two - hinged parabolic arch of horizontal span L and central riseyc, carries a point load W at the crown. If I =Io sec\u03b8, \ufb01nd the horizontal thrust in the arch and B.M. at crown. Sketch the B.M.D.


3. The cables of a suspension bridge of span 200 m are suspended from the top of piers which are not at the same level. The tops of piers are 18m and 12m vertically above the lowest point of the cable. The u.d.l. carried per cable = 10 kN/m. Find.

(a) Length of the cable between the piers
(b) Horizontal pull in the cable
(c) Tension in the cable at the piers

(d) Pressure on the piers assuming that the cable passes over smooth pulleys \ufb01xed at the top of the piers and the backstay at the lowest point makes an angle of 600 with the vertical and that of the higher pier makes an angle of 450 with the vertical.


4. Using Kani\u2019s method determine the support moments for the three-span continuous beam with \ufb01xed end supports shown in Figure 4 (EI = constant). Sketch the B.M. and S.F. D.

Figure 4
5. Using slope de\ufb02ection-method analyse the continuous beam loaded as shown in
Figure 5. Sketch the B.M.D.
