Q1 | IS : 800 - 1971 recommends that in a splice plate the number of rivets carrying calculated shear stress through a packing greater than 6 mm thick, is to be increased by 2.5% for every
Q2 | To the calculated area of cover plates of a built-up beam, an allowance for rivet holes to be added, is
Q3 | If the moment of inertia of a section about its axis is and its effective sectional area is, its radius of gyration r about the axis, is
Q4 | A structural member subjected to compressive stress in a direction parallel to its longitudinal axis, is generally known as
Q5 | The equivalent axial tensile load Pe, which produces an average axial tensile stress in the section equivalent to the combined stress due to axial tension P and bending M, at the extreme fibre of the section, is given by (where Z is the section modulus of the section).
Q6 | For the steel member exposed to weather and accessible for repainting, the thickness of steel should not be less than (accepting the webs of Indian Standard rolled steel joists and channels).
Q7 | The distance measured along one rivet line from the centre of a rivet to the centre of adjoining rivet on an adjacent parallel rivet line, is called
Q8 | The effective length of a simply supported beam with ends restrained against torsion, and also the ends of compression flange partially restrained against lateral bending, is given by
Q9 | Strengths of a rivet in single shearing, in bearing and in tearing are 3425 kg, 4575 kg and 5025 kg respectively. If the load in the member is 35 tonnes, the number of rivets required, is
Q10 | A simply supported beam carrying a central load, will be safe in deflection if the ratio of its span to depth, is
Q11 | When a load is transferred through one surface to another surface in contact, thestress is known as
Q12 | A 20 mm dia steel bar which is subjected to an axial tension of 2300 kg/cm2 produces a strain of cm. If Young's modulus of steel is 2.1 × 106kg/cm2, the bar is
Q13 | The maximum axial load which is just sufficient to keep a column in a smalldeflected shape, is called
Q14 | Spans of continuous fillers are considered approximately equal if the longest span does not exceed the shortest span by more than
Q15 | The ratio of the span L of the filler joists to the depth d from the underside of the joist to the top of the structural concrete, should not exceed
