Section - B



(4 x 5 =20) Q2) Discuss briefly the theories of failure for brittle material.

Q3) A solid round bar 3 m long and 5cm in diameter is used as a column with both ends hinged. Determine the percentage change in the Euler's crippling 'load of the column iqhe end conditions are changed to both end fixed. Take E= 200 GPa.

Q4) A stepped circular section .bar ABCD, figure shown be,low, of steel (E = 210 GPa) has the partAB (solid, dja= 50mm, length = 60mm), partBC (hollow, od = 30mm, length = 50mm) and part CD (solid, dia = 70mm,~- length = 50mm). What the inner diameter of part BC if the tensile stress in it is 200 MPa? What is the totaLelongation of the bar ABCD?. .


P:I~kN l ~P:l~kN Q5) A bronze bar 3m long with a cross-sectional area placed between

two rigid walls. At a temperature of -20°C, there is a gap of2.5mm, as shown in figure 'below. Find the temperature at which the compressive stress in the bar will be 35 MPa. . Use a = 18.0 x 10-6jOCand E = 80-GPa.
