## Marks 1

For a loaded cantilever beam of uniform cross-section, the bending moment (in N-mm) along the length is M(x) = 5x2+10x, where x is the distance (in mm...
A simply supported beam $$PQ$$ is loaded by a moment of $$1$$ $$kN-m$$ at the mid-span of the beam as shown in the figure. The reaction forces $${R_P}... A cantilever beam carries the anti-symmetric load shown, where wo is the peak intensity of the distributed load. Qualitatively, the correct bending mo... A concentrated load$$P$$acts on a simply supported beam of span$$L$$at a distance$${L \over 3}$$from the left support. The bending moment at the... A block of steel is loaded by a tangential force on its top surface while the bottom surface is held rigidly. The deformation of the block is due to ... For a simply supporting beam on two end supports the Bending Moment is maximum: ## Marks 2 For the overhanging beam shown in figure, the magnitude of maximum bending moment (in kN-m) is ________ ... A cantilever beam OP is connected to another beam PQ with a pin joint as shown in figure. A load of$$10$$kN is applied at the mid-point of PQ. The m... A simply supported beam of length$$L$$is subjected to a varying distributed load$$\sin \left( {3\pi x/L} \right)N{m^{ - 1}}, where the distance ...
In a simply-supported beam loaded as shown below, the maximum bending moment in N-m is ...
A beam is made up of two identical bars AB and BC, by hinging them together at B. The end A is built-in (cantilevered) and the end C is simply support...
A mass of 35 kg is suspended from a weightless bar AC, which is supported by a cable CB and a pin at A as shown in Fig. below. The pin reactions at A ...
Two bars AB and BC are connected by a frictionless hinge at B. The assembly is supported and loaded as shown in Fig. Draw the shear force and bending ...
