3. Explain the method of construction of B.M. and S.F. diagrams by use of
cantilever moments.
4. Show the application of bending formula to a composite beam made up
of two different materials.
5. Explain the concept of complimentary shearing stresses in shafts under
pure tension.
6. Apply following theories of failure to thin cylinders :
Principle stress theory, Principle strain theory, maximum shear stress
theory, strain energy theory and distortion energy theory.
SECTION-C
7. Following figure shows the stress condition at a point. Find the normal,
shear and resultant stresses and the direction of resultant stress for the
plane inclined at 30° as shown in figure.

8. A hollow steel shaft 8 cm outside diameter is coupled to a solid phosphor bronze shaft of 8 cm diameter. Neglecting the effect of coupling, find the suitable internal diameter of the steel shaft, if a torque is to be applied to the compound shaft to develop a maximum shear stress of 40 MaPa in the bronze shaft and a maximum shear stress of 72 MPa in the steel shaft. Angle of twist in the steel shaft is not to exceed 1°. Length of steel shaft is 1 m and of bronze shaft is 1.2 m. Also find the total angle of twist for whole of the shaft. Take Gsteel = 80 GPa and Gbronze = 40 GPa.
9. Find the critical load for a standard rolled steel angle 50 × 50 × 6
(ISA 5050) column 2m long having area of angle as 5.68 cm 2 , minimum
radius of gyration as 0.96 cm, E = 210 GPa and proportional limit stress
in simple compression = 210 MPa for following conditions :
(i) the column has rounded ends
(ii) both ends are fixed
(iii) one end is fixed and the other hinged
(iv) one end is fixed and the other is free
