Answer ALL Questions
PART A (10 X 2 = 20 Marks)

1. Draw the free body diagram of box shaped volume element and indicate all components of
stresses at a point in a loaded body.
2. The state of stress at a point is given by:
x = x2y+20;
xy = 3 x2y;
y = x3z+ y2; yz = yz;
z = yz2+ 10; xz=xz
Determine the body forces distribution at the point (1,2,3) so that the stresses are in equilibrium.
3. Compute Lames constant and G for steel having E= 210 X 106 kPa. And = 0.285
4. Distinguish stress distribution between curved and straight beams.
5. Write the assumptions made in evaluating stress in rotating members.
6. Define neutral axis of a cross section subjected to unsymmetrical bending

12.b) A cantilever of I-section, 2.4 meter long is subjected to a load of 200N at the free end as shown
in Fig. 12.b. Determine the resulting bending stresses at corners A and B, on the fixed sectin of the

13.a)A central horizontal section of hooks is a symmetrical trapezium 60mm deep. The inner width
being 60mm and the outer being 30mm. Estimate the extreme intensities if stress when the hook
carries a load being 30kN, the load line passing 40mm form the inside edge of the section and the
centre of curvature being in the load line. Also plot the stress distribution across the section.
13.b) A chain link as shown in Fig.13b is made of round steel rod of 15mm diameter. If R=45mm l
= 75mm and load
applied is 1.5kN. Determine the maximum
compressive stress in
the link and tensile stress at the same

14. a) An aluminium box section has been designed as shown in Fig. 14a for the maximum shear
stress of 33MN/m2. Neglecting stress concentration find (i) the twisting moment which can be taken
by the section and (ii)The twist per meter length. Take C = 27GN/m2.

14. b) A thin walled bar section shown in Fig 14.b has a constant wall thickness t, one compartment
is slit open it is subjected to a twisting moment T. If C is the shear modulus of the section. find
i) Torque shared by each cell, ii) Max. Shear stress in the both the cells and iii) Angular twist per unit
15. a) A disc of uniform thickness having inner and outer diameters 100mm and 400mm respectively
is rotating at 5000r.p.m about its axis. The density of the materials of the disk is 7800kg/cubic meter
and Poissons ratio is 0.28. Determine the stress variations along the radius of the disc.
15. b) Let the two semicircular disks in Fig 15.b be made of steel (E1 = E2 = 200GPa and 1 = 2 =
0.28). The radii of curvature of the two surfaces at the point of contact are R1 = 80mm R1 =
170mm, R2 = 100mm, R2 = 260mm. The angle
between the planes of minimum curvature is /3
rad. If the load P = 7.5 kN, determine the
maximum principal stress, maximum shear stress,
and maximum octahedral shear stress in the disks
and state the location of the point where each of
these stress occur. Determine the approach for
the two disks because of Load P.
