MECHANICS OF SOLIDS

Assignment
1

Unit 1:

1.

A tensile test was conducted on a mild steel bar. The following data was

obtained from the test:

(i) Diameter of the steel bar

= 3 cm

(ii) Gauge length of the bar

= 20cm

= 250 kN

(iv) Extension at a load of 150 kN = 0.21 mm

= 380 kN

(vi) Total extension

= 60 mm

(vii) Diameter of rod at failure = 2.25 cm

Determine:

(1) The Young’s modulus

(2) The stress at elastic limit

(3) The percentage of elong
ation

(4) The percentage decrease in area.

2.

A)
Derive relation between three elastic moduli
?

B)
Define Factor of safety, Poisson's ratio and strain energy
?

Unit 2

1.

Explain the procedure to draw a SFD & BMD for a point load,
UDL,UVL.

2.

Explain the procedure

to draw a SFD & BMD on a cantilever beam
,simply supported beam and over hanging beam.

Unit 3

1.
