Solutions

S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. When torsion is dominant then Box-type section used & second most probable section for torsion dominant is I. Section because the shear center of these section not lies outside.

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. If the load at the free end of a cantilever beam is increased the failure will occur at the fixed end because due to increase of load moment resisted by fixed support is increased and when support moment reaction increased beyond its limit then failure occur.

S3. Ans.(C)
Sol.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Flat faced follower is also known as mushroom follower
Types of followers –
1.Knife edge follower
2.Roller follower
3.Flat faced or mushroom follower
4.Spherical follower

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. if each speed of governor possesses a particular radius of governor, then it is called stable governor.

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. The instantaneous center changes every moment, its locus is called centrode and the surface generated by the instantaneous axis is called the axode.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Rickshaws takes sharp turn by using the concept of slip. When one of the wheels will slip against the road, rickshaw turns. We cannot use a differential mechanism in it because wheels and axis are rigidly connected to each other.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. for critical damping:(ς=1)
It is used to predicts the nature of vibration.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. There are following ways to increase shock absorbing capacity of a bolt.
Shock absorbing capacity or strain energy (U)
U ∝ L(length of bolt)
U ∝ 1/A
Or
U ∝ 1/d^2
Hence, L↑→U↑
d↑→U↓

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. Main parts of cotter joint
1.Socket
2.Spigot
3.Cotter
4.Socket collar
5.Spigot collar
