Q1. The strain energy stored in a cantilever beam loaded as shown, will be:
(a) (P^2 l^3)/4E
(b) (P^2 l^3)/3EI
(c) (P^2 l^3)/2EI
(d) (P^2 l^3)/6EI
Q2. In case of cantilever, irrespective of the type of loading, the maximum bending moment and maximum shear force occur at–
(a) fixed end
(b) free end
(d) any point
Q3. A beam is fixed at one end and free at the other end. A load Acts in the center. The maximum bending moment will occur at–
(a) between center and fixed end
(b) under the load
(c) fixed end
(d) free end
Q4. A simply supported beam is subjected to a point load P at the middle of the beam. The correct normal stress distribution across its cross-section is given by which figure?
Q5. The strength of the beam mainly depends on-
(a) section modulus
(b) its weight
(c) bending moment
(d) centre of gravity of the section
Q6. The shear stress distribution over a rectangular cross-section of a beam follows____________.
(a) A straight line path
(b) A circular path
(c) A parabolic path
(d) An elliptical path
Sol. In case of cantilever, irrespective of type of loading, the maximum bending moment and shear force occur at fixed end because there is only one support at the fixed end which gives the reactive force or moment for equilibrium.
From the figure we can see that, the maximum bending moment at the fixed end.
Or we can directly say for cantilever beam maximum bending moment or shear force at the fixed end Irrespective of loading.
Sol. for a simply supported beam subjected to a point load P at the middle of the beam, the normal stress distribution in given by
Sol. the strength of the beam mainly depends upon section modulus because the strength is mainly depends upon moment of resistance.
σ_b is depend on material, so it is depend on section modulus.
Sol. the shear distribution over a rectangular cross – section of a beam follows a parabolic path.
