QUESTION 1
A solid shaft which has a radius of 30 mm and length 2m is made of an elastic perfectly plastic
material. It is loaded by a slowly increasing torque Tp until a plastic zone has occurred partially
in the shaft. Derive an expression for the torque Tp.
(c) the residual shearing stress at the outer surface after the torque of 1.2 Ty is removed.

QUESTION 2
A rigid horizontal bar pivoted at the lefthand end is loaded by a point load Pat the righthand
end as shown in Figure 2a. It is supported by a column, which is pinned at both ends and is
restrained at midheight from inplane (xy plane) displacement, but free to deflect outofplane
(yz plane). The column has a height of 300 mm and a rectangular crosssection of 5 x 15 mm
as shown in Figure 2b. Assuming a factor of safety of 1.5, determine the maximum allowable
load P that the column can support. Assume a Young' s modulus of200 GPa and a compressive
yield stress of 300 MPa.
State if buckling will occur in the xy plane (inplane) or yz plane (outofplane).
