Consider the structural system shown in the figure under the action of weight $$W.$$ All the joints are hinged. The properties of the members in terms of length $$(L),$$ area $$(A)$$ and the modulus of elasticity $$(E)$$ are also given in the figure. Let $$L,A$$ and $$E$$ be $$1$$ $$m,$$ $$0.05$$ $${m^2}$$ and $$30 \times {10^6}\,\,N/{m^2},\,\,$$ respectively, and $$W$$ be $$100$$ $$kN.$$

Which one of the following sets gives the correct values of the force, stress and change in length of the horizontal member $$QR$$?

A
Compressive force $$=25$$ $$kN;$$
Stress $$= 250\,kN/{m^2},$$
Shortening $$=0.0118$$ $$m$$
B
Compressive force $$=14.14$$ $$kN;$$
Stress $$= 141.4\,kN/{m^2},$$
Shortening $$=0.0118$$ $$m$$
C
Compressive force $$=100$$ $$kN;$$
Stress $$= 1000\,kN/{m^2},$$
Shortening $$=0.0417$$ $$m$$
D
Compressive force $$=100$$ $$kN;$$
Stress $$= 1000\,kN/{m^2},$$
Shortening $$=0.0417$$ $$m$$

A uniform beam ($$EI=$$ constant) $$PQ$$ in the form of a quarter-circle of radius $$R$$ is fixed at end $$P$$ and free at the end $$Q,$$ where a load $$W$$ is applied as shown. The vertical downward displacement, $${\delta _q},$$ at the loaded point $$Q$$ is given by : $${\delta _q} = \beta \left( {{{W{R^3}} \over {EI}}} \right).$$

Find the value of $$\beta$$(correct to $$4-$$decimal places). _____________________
