BCE-032 : THEORY OF STRUCTURES-I

Time : 2 hours Maximum Marks : 70

Note : Question number 1 is compulsory. Attempt any four

questions from the remaining. In all solve five questions.

Assume suitable data wherever necessary and mention

it. Use of calculator and steel tables is permitted.

1. Choose the most appropriate answer from the

following alternatives in each case. 7x2=14

(a) The nominal diameter of a rivet is 25mm.

The gross diameter will be :

(i) 25mm. (ii) 23mm.

(iii) 27mm. (iv) 26.5mm

(b) The efficiency of a riveted joint is equal to

the ratio of :

(i) Least strength of joint to the strength

of solid plate

(ii) Greatest strength of the joint to the

strength of solid plate

(iii) Least strength of the riveted plate to

the greatest strength of the joint

(iv) All the above

(c) The cross section of standard fillet weld is a

triangle with base angles of :

(i) 30° and 60° (ii) 40° and 50°

(iii) 35° and 55° (iv) 45° and 45°

BCE-032 1 P.T.O.

(d) If 't' is the thickness of the plates to be

welded, the maximum size of the fillet weld

is :

(i) t (ii) t — 1.5mm

(iii) t — 2mm (iv) t — 1mm

(e) The slenderness ratio of compression

member carrying compressive loads

resulting from dead and superimposed

loads only shall not exceed :

(i) 400

(ii) 350

(iii) 250

(iv) 180

(f)

If one end of a prismatic beam AB of length

'1' which is fixed at A and B is given a

transverse displacement without any

rotation at the fixed ends, then the

transverse reactions at A and B due to this

displacement 0 is :

(i) 6 ELV12 (ii) 6 EIA/13

(iii) 12 EIA/ /2 (iv) 12 EIA/ 13

(g)

The ordinate of the influence line diagram

for bending moment always have the

dimensions of :

(i) Force (ii) Length

Force

(iii) Force x Length (iv) Length

2. A fixed beam AB of span 10m carries a uniformly 14

distributed load of 10kN/m upto 3m from the left

hand support A and a point load of 10kN at 3m

from the right hand support B. Analyse the beam

and draw the bending moment and shear force

diagrams.

BCE-032 2

4- 6 kN/m

0,0111111111100111.••••••••

15 kN

3. Analyse the continuous beam shown below and 14

draw the bending moment and shear force

diagrams. The beam has constant EI throughout.

J r

6m

4. A simply supported beam of span'!' is loaded with 14

a uniformly distributed load of W/m. EI for the

beam is constant throughout. Using Moment Area

Theorems calculate the slopes at the supports and

the deflection at the centre.

5. An ISA 100 x 100 x 6 (fy = 250MPa) is used as a

strut in a roof truss. The length of the strut

between intersection is 3.0m. Calculate the

strength of the strut if :

(a) It is connected by one rivet at each end. 5

(b) It is connected by two rivets at each end. 5

(c) It is welded at each end.

4

6. (a) Explain the various types of rivets used in 6

steel structures with the help of sketches.

(b) A 6mm thick angle section is joined to a

8

10mm thick gusset plate by means 16mm

diameter hand driven field rivets. The

angle is subjected to a tensile force of 55kN.

Find the number of rivets required for the

joint. The permissible stresses in hand driven

field rivets are 72N/ mm2 and 225N/mm2

in shearing and bearing respectively. Draw

the neat sketch of the joint.

BCE-032 3 P.T.O.

7. A masonry dam 8m high is 1.5m wide at the top 14

and 5m wide at the base. It retains water upto a

depth of 7.5m. The water face of the dam is

vertical. The weight of masonry is

22.4kN/m3. Find the maximum and minimum

stresses at the base and also calculate the factor

of safety against sliding if the coefficient of friction

between the soil and the dam base is 0.6.

8. Write short notes on any four of the following :

4x31/2=14

(a) Assumptions for the design of riveted joints.

(b) Stiffness of a beam and distribution factor

in moment distribution method.

(c) Various types of roof trusses.

(d) Web buckling of I - Section.

(e) Minimum depth of foundation.

(f) Loads acting on roof trusses.

(g) Carry over moments in moment distribution.
