1. ISA 100 × 100 × 10 mm (Cross sectional area = 1908) serves as tensile
member. This angle is welded to a gusset plate along A and B
appropriately as shown. Assuming the yield strength of the steel to be
260 N/ the tensile strength of this member can be taken to be
approximately,

(A) 500 kN (B) 300 kN

(C) 225 kN (D) 375 kN

Ans:

2. In the design of lacing system for a built-up steel column, the maximum
allowable slenderness ratio of a lacing bar is

(a) 120 (b) 145
(c) 180 (d) 250

Ans: (b)

At ends the two angles are connected. by 18 mm diameter rivets arranged in one row. The distance of the centroid of the angle from its surface (Cx =Cy) is 40. by 18 mm diameter rivets arranged in one row. At ends the two angles are connected. one each on either side of a 10mm thick gusset plate.2 mm (b) 62. A strut in a steel truss is composed of two equal angles ISA 150 mm x 150 mm of thickness 100 mm connected back-to-back to the same side of a gusset plate.5 (c) 77.6 (b) 87.0 Ans: ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 5.0 N/mm2 and fbr=250 N/mm2 Minimum number of rivets required at each end is (a) 2 (b) 3 (c) 4 (d) 5 Ans: 6. The allowable stresses in rivet are fs=90.6 mm (d) 29.SUB: RCC AND STEEL MODULE-38C 3. A truss tie consisting of 2 ISA 75 x 75 x 8 mm carries a pull of 150 KN. The minimum radius of gyration of the strut is (a) 93.0 N/mm2 and fbr=250 N/mm2. one each on either side of a 10mm thick gusset plate.8 mm.7 mm (c) 46. Which of the following elements of a pitched roof industrial steel building primarily resists lateral load parallel to the ridge? (a) Bracings (b) Purlins (c) Truss (d) Columns Ans: (b) 4.2 (d) 66. The cross sectional area of each angle is 2921 mm2 and moment of inertia (Ixx = Iyy) is 6335000 mm4. Maximum tensile stress in the tie in N/mm2 is (a) 93.

Two equal angles ISA 100 mm x 100 mm of thickness 10 mm are placed back-to-back and connected to the either side of a gusset plate through a single row of 16 mm diameter rivets in double shear. If these angles are NOT tack riveted. respectively. The effective areas of the connected and unconnected legs of each of these angles are 775 mm2 and 950 mm2.SUB: RCC AND STEEL MODULE-38C 7. the net effective area of this pair of angles is (a) 3650 mm2 (b) 3450 mm2 (c) 3076 mm2 (d) 2899 mm2 Ans: ( ) JH ACADEMY Page 3 .
