A homogeneous, prismatic, linearly elastic steel bar fixed at both the ends has a slenderness ratio (l/r) of 105, where l is the bar length and r is the radius of gyration. The coefficient of thermal expansion of steel is $12 \times 10^{-6}$ $^{\circ}$C. Consider the effective length of the steel bar as $0.5l$ and neglect the self-weight of the bar.

The differential increase in temperature (rounded off to the nearest integer) at which the bar buckles is

Consider two axially loaded columns, namely. $$1$$ and $$2,$$ made of a linear elastic material with Young's modulus $$2 \times {10^5}\,\,MPa,$$ square cross-section with side $$10$$ $$mm$$, and length $$1$$ $$m.$$ For Column $$1,$$ one end is fixed and the other end is free. For column $$2,$$ one end is fixed and the other end is pinned. Based on the Euler's theory, the ratio (up to one decimal place) of the buckling load of Column $$2$$ to the buckling load of column $$1$$ is ___________

If the following equation establishes equilibrium in slightly bent position, the mid-span deflection of a member shown in the figure is

$${{{d^2}y} \over {d{x^2}}} + {P \over {EI}}y = 0$$

$${{{d^2}y} \over {d{x^2}}} + {P \over {EI}}y = 0$$

If $$'a'$$ is amplitude constant for $$y,$$ then
