1-Dont try to cram or spend more time here just read it fast and cover syllabus then practice MCQ's cheptor of same topic to check your progress. . |

2-Wrong options are also given but dont concentrate there, Right answer is in bold format. |

Q1 ⇒ The maximum deflection of a fixed beam carrying a central point load lies at.centre of beam[other wrong options] [Discuss in forum] fixed ends l/3 from fixed ends none of these |

Q2 ⇒ When one plate overlaps the other and the two plates are riveted together with two rows of rivets, the joint is known as.double riveted lap joint[other wrong options] [Discuss in forum] single riveted lap joint double riveted single cover butt joint double riveted double cover butt joint |

Q3 ⇒ In order to avoid tearing off the plate at an edge, the distance from the centre of the rivet hole to the nearest edge of the plate (i.e. margin) should be (where d = Diameter of rivet hole in mm)1.5 d[other wrong options] [Discuss in forum] d 2 d 2.5 d |

Q4 ⇒ When a body is subjected to a direct tensile stress (σ), the maximum normal stress is equal to the direct tensile stress.Agree[other wrong options] [Discuss in forum] Disagree Yes No |

Q5 ⇒ If the section modulus of a beam is increased, the bending stress in the beam will.decrease[other wrong options] [Discuss in forum] not change increase None of these |

Q6 ⇒ When a shaft, is subjected to torsion, the shear stress induced in the shaft varies from.zero at the centre to maximum at the circumference[other wrong options] [Discuss in forum] minimum at the centre to maximum at the circumference maximum at the centre to minimum at the circumference maximum at the centre to zero at the circumference |

Q7 ⇒ The bending moment at a section tends to bend or deflect the beam and the internal stresses resist its bending. The resistance offered by the internal stresses, to the bending, is called.bending stress[other wrong options] [Discuss in forum] compressive stress shear stress elastic modulus |

Q9 ⇒ The actual neutral axis of a reinforced cement concrete beam is based on the principle that the moment of areas of compression and tension zones at the neutral axis are equal.Agree[other wrong options] [Discuss in forum] Disagree Both (a) and (b) None of these |

Q10 ⇒ A localised compressive stress at the area of contact between two members is known as.crushing stress[other wrong options] [Discuss in forum] tensile stress bending stress shear stress |

Q11 ⇒ The assumption, generally, made in the theory of simple bending is that.all of the above[other wrong options] [Discuss in forum] the beam material is perfectly homogenous and isotropic the beam material is stressed within its elastic limit the plane sections before bending remain plane after bending |
