Q.3 Attempt any FOUR of the following. 16 Marks
a) Two 10 mm thick plates are joined together by means of double riveted lap Joint. The rivets are 20 mm diameter at a pitch of 75 mm. Find out the way in which the joint will fail. The ultimate tensile stress 450 N/mm2 and ultimate shearing & bearing stresses in rivet being 300 N / mm2 & 600 N /mm2.
b) 16mm thick plates is joint by double cover butt joint using a 10mm thick cover plate. The steel of main and cover plate having permissible tensile strength of 150 N/mm2. Determine the strength of joint per pitch of 9cm. Rivets are power design shop rivets of 20 mm
c) Two plates 10mm thick are joined together means of double riveted double cover butt joint using 20mm diameter rivets. Design pitch of rivets take bat = 150 N/mm2
Q.4 Attempt any TWO of the following. 16 Marks
a) Design a suitable fillet wielded joint between two plates of size 180mm X 8mm and 200mm and 8mm to develop the full strengthen of the smaller plate in tension. Permissible tensile strain Bat = 150 N/mm2
b) Find the strength of un equal weld as shown in fig. 1. When angle section carries axial load of 210 kn and size of weld = 7mm
c) Design a suitable fillet weld to connect a tie bar 80mm x 8mm at its ends. Use a gusset plate 8mm thick take the permissible stress in tension to be 150N/mm2
Q.5 Attempt any TWO of the following. 16 Marks
a) Calculate the strength of ISA 90X60X8mm used as a tie member with its longer leg connected at ends by 16mm diameter rivet.
b) Design an unequal angle section to act as a tie member 1.56m long in a roof truss if it is to carry an axial load of 120kn. Use hand driven rivets at joints.
c) An angle iron ISA 7070X10mm thick is used as a tension member connected to a gusset by 16mm dia rivets through both legs. The rivets are pitched at 50mm on each leg. The rivets on two legs are staggered by 25mm as shown in fig. 2. Find the allowable axial tension in the angle section if the permissible tensile stress is 150 mpa.
Q.6 Attempt any TWO of the following. 16 Marks
a) Design a slab base for 2 column section consisting of one SC 250 with two cover plates 300X25mm carrying an axial load of 2500 kn. The safe bearing capacity of soil is 250kn/m2 and the permissible bearing pressure on concrete is 4000 kn/m2 b) Write the steps to design the riveted joint.
c) Design a tension member suing two angle to carry 180kn when both angles are connected on both sides of gusset plate with 20mm diameter power driven shop rivets. Take bat = 150 N/mm2
