Section –B
Note : Attempt any three questions.
2.
a.     For an I section with flanges =60 x 10 mm and web = 20 x 200mm determine 1xx, 1yy

b.     A beam ABC = 10 m , is hinged at A and supported at B at a distance of 8m from A and supports 4KN at C and u.d.i. of  0.5 KN/m from A to B. draw B.N.D and S.F.D and locate point of centraflecuse if any.

c.     A cast iron water main 1.0 m long of 550 mm outer dia and 25 mm wall thickness runs full water and is supported at its ends. Calculate the max. stress in metal if density of cast iron is 70.6 KMm3 and that of water is 9.81 KN/m3

d.     A beam 4 m long is simple supported at its ends and carries point loads of 10 KN each at both the quarter points calculate the maximum slope and deflection of the beam. Take EL= 4 x 1012 N –mm2 use moment area methods.
