SECTION-A
Q.1 Two parallel walls, 8 m apart, are to be stayed together by steel rod
of 30 mm diameter with the help of washers and nuts at the ends.
The steel rod is passed through the metal plates and is heated. When
its temperature is raised to 900c, the nuts are tightened. Determine
the pull in the bar when it is cooled to 240C if
i) the ends do not yield
ii) the total yielding at the ends is 2 mm. E=205 Gpa and
coefficient of thermal expansion of steel, αs = 11 X 10-6 / 0c

Q.5 A vertical flag staff is 10 m long and is of square section
throughout. Section at the bottom is 160 mm x160 mm and tapers
uniformly to 80 mm X 80 mm at the top. Determine the maximum
stress due to bending if a horizontal pool of 1kN is applied at the

Q.5 A rectangular column 150 mm wide and 100 mm thick carries a
load of 150 kN at an eccentricity of 50mm in the plane bi-secting
the thickness. Find max and min intensities of stress in the section.

Q.6 Two shafts are made of the same materials. Each shaft transmits the
same power. The 1st shaft rotates at 50 r.p.m while the 2nd at 5000
r.p.m. Determine the ratio of diameters of two shafts for the same
maximum shear stress in each shaft.

OR
Q.6 A short column of 30 m internal diameter and 60 mm external
diameter carries an eccentric load of 120 kN. Determine the
maximum eccentricity which the load can have without producing
tension on the cross section of the column.
