Q1. If the thickness of thinnest outside plate is 10 mm, then the maximum pitch of rivets in tension will be taken as
(a) 120 mm
(b) 160 mm
(c) 200 mm
(d) 300 mm

Q2. In a gusseted base, when the end of the column is machined for complete bearing on the base plate, then the axial load is assumed to be transferred to base plate
(a) Fully by direct bearing
(b) Fully through fastenings
(c) 50% by direct bearing and 50% through fastenings
(d) 75% by direct bearing and 25% through fastenings

Q3. When the axis of load lies in the plane of rivet group, then the most heavily loaded rivet will be the one which
(a) Is at the maximum distance from CG of the rivet group
(b) Gives the maximum angle between the two forces Fa and Fm
(c) Gives the minimum angle between the two forces Fa and Fm
(d) Gives the minimum angle between the two forces Fa and Fm

Q4. The difference between gross diameter and nominal diameter for the rivets up to 25 mm diameter is
(a) 1.0 mm
(b) 1.5 mm
(c) 2.0 mm
(d) 2.5 mm

Q5. If the thickness of plate to be connected by a rivet is 16 mm, then suitable size of rivet as per Unwin’s formula will be
(a) 16 mm
(b) 20 mm
(c) 24 mm
(d) 27 mm

Q6. Consider the following statements at a given point in case of thick cylinder subjected to fluid pressure.
2. Hoop stress is tensile
3. Hoop stress is compressive
4. Longitudinal stress is tensile and remains constant along the length of the cylinder.
Which of these statements are correct?
(a) Only 1, 2 and 4
(b) Only 3 and 4
(c) Only 1, 4
(d) Only 1, 3 and 4

SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. The maximum pitch of rivets in tension will be taken as 16t_min or 300 mm. Whichever is lesser.
Hence, t_min = 10 mm. (Given)
Maximum pitch = Min. of (16×10mm & 300mm)=Min of (160 mm & 300mm)
▭(Maximum pitch=160 mm.)
S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. In a gusseted base, when the end of the column is machined for complete bearing on the base plate, then axial load is assumed to be transferred to base plate 50% by direct bearing and 50% through fastenings.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. When the axis of load lies in the plane of rivet group, then the most heavily loaded rivet will be the one which gives minimum angle between the two forces F_a and F_m.
F_m = shearing load due to moment in any rivet.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. In case of rivets →

 Nominal diameter (ϕ) Gross diameter of rivet ϕ ≤ 25 mm (ϕ) + 1.5 mm ϕ > 25 mm (ϕ) + 2.0 mm

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given, t_min=16mm.
As per Unwin’s formula.
Diameter of rivet (d) = 6.01√(t_min )
= 6.01 √16
= 24.04 ≈ 24 mm

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Radial, Hoop and Longitudinal, all three are tensile in nature and acts as principal stresses in the analysis.
