)
Sl.No. PROBLEM TYPE 1 CENTROID 2 MOMENT OF INERTIA Description of the problem Know how to find the centroid of compound section,( X ,Y) Know how to find first moment of inertia (which is useful to find the bending shear stress), second moment of inertia (which is useful to find the bending compressive and bending tensile stress), product of inertia (which is used to locate the principal axes, where the product inertia is zero) and polar moment of inertia (sum of second moment inertia about both axes). Also train up yourself for the direction of principal axes and the magnitude of principal moment of inertia. In the derivation between modulus of rigidity and the elastic modulus, the pure shear specimen (that is the specimen will be subjected to shear stress only) will have internally tensile stress and compressive stress diagonally, having magnitude equal to the shear stress. In the derivation of between elastic modulus and bulk modulus, you should know how to find the volumetric strain of a cube subjected to the hydrostatic pressure. Generalised hooks law equations for finding the change in dimensions, when the elastic body is subjected to uniaxial load or uniaxial stress, biaxial load or biaxial stress and triaxial load or triaxial stress. (concentrate on cylindrical specimen, where there is change in diameter or change in length) See the concept of the principal stresses AND principal strains. Also know how to find the direction of principal axes , magnitude of principal stresses or strains and the maximum shear stress or shear strain. So far principal strains or maximum shear strain problems are not given. See the problems on the axially loaded, prismatic or non prismatic members (tapered rods), composite members. Temperature effect and self weight effect on the members are also important. Know the concept in thin cylinders. Study various stresses and strains in the cylinder subjected to internal pressure. Also know how to design (i.e. finding the thickness of cylinder) the cylinder if the internal pressure and the permissible stress of the materials are given. Also know how to find the principal

directly you can say some members are having zero forces.e. i. Mostly they will not ask you direct problems.e. m. minimum three members (or) m= 2j-3. but you have to find the forces in the members due to temperature change in the members or shortage of length in the members or due to settlement of the supports.e. but with continuous beams with internal hinge. they may give different loading i. assumptions in deriving the various critical load formulas for various boundary conditions of columns. it is TWO DISPLACEMENTS i. Know core or kernel of a section (area where the axial load can be placed without any tensile stresses in the section).stresses and the principal strains.e. Some TRUSS problems will be given without any loads at the joints. radius of gyration and its relationship.e. So count the joints and multiply the TWO displacements.(2j3)) and external ( i. from that you have to identify the loading and the type of beam. Also find the rules for TRUSS analysis. In some beam problems. Cantilever beams with multiple curves (example sine boards) 7 COLUMNS 8 TORSION 9 TRUSS STABILITY. Know the difference in words of crippling load and buckling load Know what is torsional rigidity (i.e. So practice and know how the BENDING MOMENT AND SHEAR FORCE DIAGRAM with internal hinges.

Relationship between Horse power and Torsion Study the Truss stability i.e. Also know the method of SECTIONS and method of joints in truss analysis. at each joint of 2D Truss frame. Practice a Cantilever TRUSS problems. For kinematic indeterminacy it is Number of unrestrained displacements i. For static indeterminacy it is sum of internal (i. Euler’s formula.e.of reactions -3). If time permits also see the thin spherical shells. horizontal and vertical displacement. In some problems they will give either bending moment or shear force diagram. No. Also know the corresponding effective length of the column.GJ= modulus of rigidity x polar moment of inertia). load will be eccentric to the beam or the support may be spring type instead of roller or hinge or fixed type.
