α=10×10^(-6) \/°C and young modulus is 250 GPa
(a) 300
(b) 325
(c) 350
(d) 375

(a) 0.04
(b) 0.4
(c) 4
(d) 40

Q6. Maximum principal stress theory was postulated by __________.
(a) St. Venant
(b) Mohr
(c) Rankine
(d) Tresca

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Bar is composite so axial force is same throughout the bars.
DFCCIL'21 CE: Daily Practice Quiz. 31-July-2021_60.1
Total elongation is the sum of each bars elongation.
Total elongation δ=δ_1+ δ_2+δ_3+⋯
δ=(Pl_1)/(A_1 E)+(Pl_2)/(A_2 E)+(Pl_3)/(A_3 E)……
δ=P/E [l_1/A_1 +l_2/A_2 +l_3/A_3 ]

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. Thermal stress in rod
=375 MPa

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given,
L = 100 cm, d = 4 cm, P = 50 kN
σ=P/Q=P/(π/4 d^2 )
=4P/(πd^2 ) =(4×50×10^3)/(π×[0.04]^2 )
=39.789 MPa
=40 N\/mm^2
S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Distributed load
DFCCIL'21 CE: Daily Practice Quiz. 31-July-2021_70.1
f=∫_0^L▒〖W_(x-x) dx〗
=wL/2 – it is at L/3 from A then bending moment at A

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. In SFD value of shear force is decreasing from A to B. So, slope of bending moment diagram also has decreasing slope.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. maximum principal stress theory also known as Rankine’s theory because it is postulated by Rankine.
