(b) 5.65 √(A_0 )
(c) 6d
(d) 8d

(b) 1600 kg/cm²
(c) 1890 kg/cm²
(d) 1450 kg/cm²

Q9. The efficiency of the riveted joints is equal to:
(a) (Length of soild plate)/(diameter of rivet)×100%
(b) (strength of soild plate)/(Strength of rivet joint)×100%
(c) (Strength of rivet joint)/(Strength of soild plate)×100%
(d) (Strength of plate)/(Length of rivet)×100%

Q10. As per structural properties of structural steel, the unit mass of steel is __________.
(a) 250×10³ g/m³
(b) 7835×10³ g/m³
(c) 5000×10³ g/m³
(d) 7850×10³ g/m³


S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. in case of rivet
→ if rivet diameter is less than 25 mm then diameter of hole equal to diameter of rivet plus 1.5 mm.
→ if rivet diameter is more than 25 mm then diameter of hole equal to diameter of rivet plus 2 mm.
S2. Ans.(c)
→ Permissible longitudinal pitch in tension is (16 t, 200 mm) whichever is less
→ Permissible longitudinal pitch in compression is (12 t, 200 mm) whichever is less
Where, t = thickness of thinner outside plate
S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. Bearing strength of rivet joint
(d×t×σ_bp )
σ_bp→ permissible bearing stress in rivet.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. shear strength in double shear rivetted joint
=2×π/4 d^2×σ_Sp
d → gross diameter
σ_sp → permissible shear stress.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Nominal diameter of rivet.
According to Unwin’s formula
d=6.05 √t (Where t- mm)
d=6.05 √10
▭(d=19.13 mm)
→ in question two thickness of plate given but in Unwin’s formula minimum thickness used

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Rivet value is equal to minimum of shearing strength & bearing strength of rivet.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. As per IS code gauge length of steel specimen = 5.65 √(A_O )
A_O → cross sectional area of the specimen

S8. Ans.(C)
Sol. According to Is-code permissible bending stress in steel slab plate is
⇒ 1890 kg/cm²

S9. Ans.(c)
▭(Efficiency (η)=(Strength of riveted joint)/(Strength of plate without hole))

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. density of structure steel = 7850 kg/m³
