Question 2 Explanation:

In triangle CEF

\begin{array}{l} \mathrm{CF}^{2}=\mathrm{CE}^{2}+\mathrm{EF}^{2} \\ 100^{2}=60^{2}=\mathrm{EF}^{2}\\ \mathrm{EF}^{2}=100^{2}-60^{2}=6400 \\ \mathrm{EF}=80 \mathrm{MPa} \end{array}

\mathrm{EF} \rightarrow Represents shear stress at the same point =\mathrm{EF}=\tau=80 \mathrm{MPa}

Question 3 |

The state of stress at a point, for a body in plane stress, is shown in the figure below. If the minimum principal stress is 10 kPa, then the normal stress \sigma_{y} (in kPa) is

9.45 | |

18.88 | |

37.78 | |

75.5 |

Question 3 Explanation:

\begin{aligned} \sigma_{x} &=100 \mathrm{kPa}, \tau_{x y}=50 \mathrm{kPa} \\ \text { Minimum principal stress } &=\frac{\sigma_{x}+\sigma_{y}}{2}-\sqrt{\left(\frac{\sigma_{x}-\sigma_{y}}{2}\right)^{2}+\tau_{x y}^{2}} \\ 10 &=\frac{100+\sigma_{y}}{2}-\sqrt{\left(\frac{100-\sigma_{y}}{2}\right)^{2}+50^{2}} \\ \therefore \quad \sqrt{\left(50-\frac{\sigma_{y}}{2}\right)^{2}+50^{2}} &=50+\frac{\sigma_{y}}{2}-10=40+\frac{\sigma_{y}}{2} \end{aligned}

By squaring

2500+\frac{\sigma_{y}^{2}}{4}-50 \sigma_{y}+2500=1600+\frac{\sigma_{y}^{2}}{4}+40 \sigma_{y}

\begin{aligned} \therefore \quad 90 \sigma_{y} &=3400 \\ \sigma_{y} &=37.78 \mathrm{MPa} \end{aligned}

By squaring

2500+\frac{\sigma_{y}^{2}}{4}-50 \sigma_{y}+2500=1600+\frac{\sigma_{y}^{2}}{4}+40 \sigma_{y}

\begin{aligned} \therefore \quad 90 \sigma_{y} &=3400 \\ \sigma_{y} &=37.78 \mathrm{MPa} \end{aligned}

Question 4 |

\sqrt{\frac{\sigma _{1} + \sigma _{3}}{2}} | |

\sqrt{\frac{\sigma _{1} - \sigma _{3}}{2}} |

Question 4 Explanation:

Maximum shear stress =\frac{\sigma_{1}-\sigma_{3}}{2}

Question 5 Explanation:

Given state of stress condition indicates pure shear state of stress.

For pure shear state of stress,

Max. tensile stress = Max. comp. stress = Max. Shear stress

=\tau_{X Y}=50 \mathrm{MPa} Hence, Max. normal stress =50 \mathrm{MPa}

For pure shear state of stress,

Max. tensile stress = Max. comp. stress = Max. Shear stress

=\tau_{X Y}=50 \mathrm{MPa} Hence, Max. normal stress =50 \mathrm{MPa}

R=\sqrt{(40)^{2}+(30)^{2}}=50 \mathrm{MPa}

Question 8 |

A two dimensional fluid element rotates like a rigid body. At a point within the element, the
pressure is 1 unit. Radius of the Mohr's circle, characterizing the state of stress at the point, is

0.5 unit | |

0 unit | |

1 unit | |

2 unit |

Question 8 Explanation:

since the fluid element will be subjected to hydrostatic loading therefore Mohr circle will

reduce into a point on \sigma\text{-axis}.

\therefore Radius of mohr circle =0 unit

reduce into a point on \sigma\text{-axis}.

\therefore Radius of mohr circle =0 unit
