Section-B

2.     Prove that the bending stresses in any fibre are proportional to the distance of that fibre form neutral layer in a beam.
3.     A steel rod of 20mm diameter passes centrally through a copper tube of 50mm external diameter and 40mm internal diameter. The tube is closed at each end by rigid plates of negligible thickness. The nuts are tightened lightly home on the projecting parts of the rod. If the temperature of the assembly of the assembly is raised by 50 °C , calculate the stresses.
Developed in copper and steel. Take E for steel and copper as 200GN/m2 and 100 GN/m2 and a-for steel and copper as 12x 10-6 per °C 18x 10-6 per °C
4.     Derive an expression for the slope and deflection of a cantilever of length L, carrying a point load W at the free end by double integration method.
5.     What is equivalent length of a column? What are the important end conditions for a column? Explain them
6.     Derive the bending equation? Also state assumptions made of derivation of bending equation?

Section –C

7.     Derive the relation for a circular shaft when subjected to torsion.
8.     Calculate the safe compressive load on  a hollow cast iron column (one end rigidly fixed and other hinged) of 15 cm external diameter, 10 cm internal diameter and 10 cm in length. Use Euler’s formula with a factor of safety of 5 and E=95KN/mm2.
9.     A beam of square section is used as a beam with one diagonal horizontal. The beam is subjected to a shear force F, at a section. Find the maximum shear in the cross-section of the beam and draw the shear distributions diagram for the section.
