FMCET CE6501 – STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS FMCET 3 UNIT – I TWO MARKS QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 1. Why it is necessary to compute deflections in structures? Computation of deflection of structures is necessary for the following reasons: (i) If the deflection of a structure is more than the permissible, the structure will not look aesthetic and will cause psychological upsetting of thje occupants. (ii) Excessive deflection may cause cracking in the materials attached to the structure. For example, if the deflection of a floor beam is excessive, the floor finishes and partition walls supported on the beam may get cracked and unserviceable. What is meant by ‘cambering technique, in structures? Cambering is a technique applied on site, in which a slight upward curve is made in the structure / beams during construction, so that it will straighten out and attain the straight shape during loading. This will considerably reduce the downward deflection that may occur at later stages. 2. 3. Name any four methods used for the computation of deflections in structures. (i) Virtual work method – Dummy unit load method (ii) Strain energy method (iii) Willot Mohr diagram method (iv) Method of elastic weights 4. State the difference between strain energy method and unit load method in the determination of deflection of structures. In strain energy method, an imaginary load P is applied at the point where the deflection is desired to be determined. P is equated to Zero in the final step and the deflection is obtained. In unit load method, an unit load (instead of P) is applied at the point where the deflection is desired. 5. What are the assumptions made in the unit load method? Assumptions made in unit load method are 1. The external and internal forces are in equilibrium 2. Supports are rigid and no movement is possible. 3. The material is strained well within elastic limit. 6. Give the equation that is used for the determination of deflection at a given point i in beams and frames. Deflection at a point i is given by, l M x m x dx i EI 0 DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING/ FMCET

FMCET CE6501 – STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS FMCET 4 Where Mx = moment at a section X due to the applied loads Mx = moment at a section X due to unit load applied at the point i and in the direction of the desired dicplacement EI = flexural rigidity 11. State the Principle of Virtual work. It states that the work done on a structure by external loads is equal to the internal energy stored in a structure (Ue = Ui) Work of external loads = work of internal loads 12. What is the strain energy stored in a rod of length l and axial rigidity AE to an axial force P? Strain energy stored P2 L U= -------2AE 13. Define Virtual work. The term virtual work means the work done by a real force acting through a virtual displacement or a virtual force acting through a real displacement. The virtual work is not a real quantity but an imaginary one. 14. Explain the procedure involved in the deflection of pin jointed plane frames. 1. Virtual forces k: Remove all the real loads from the truss. Place a unit load on the truss at the joint and in the direction of the desired displacement. Use the method of joints or the method of sections and calculate the internal forces k in each member of the truss. 2. Real forces F: These forces arre caused only by the real loads acting on the truss. Use the method of sections or the method of joints to determine the forces F in each member. 3. Virtual work equation: Apply the equation of virtual work, to determine the desired displacement. 15. In the truss shown in fig. no load acts. The member AB gets 4mm too short. The cross sectional area of each member is A = 300 mm2 and E = 200 GPa. Determine the vertical displacement of joint C. DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING/ FMCET

FMCET CE6501 – STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS FMCET 5 Solution: Virtual forces, k: Since the vertical displacement of joint C is required, a vertical force of 1 kN is applied at C. The force k in each member is determined as below: By symmetry, RA = RB = ½ Joint A: ∑V = 0 gives KAC cos 36º 52’ + ½ = 0 KAC = 0.625 kN (comp) ∑H = 0 gives kAB + kAC cos 53º 08’ = 0 kAB = 0.375 kN (tensile) Joint B: ∑V = 0 gives KBC cos 36º 52’ + ½ = 0 KBC = 0.625 kN (comp) Member AB undergoes a deformation, ∆L = 0.004 m ∆ = ∑(k.∆L) (∆C)V = (0.375) (-0.004) + 0 +0 = -0.0015m = -1.5 mm The negative sign indicates that joint C displaced upward, i.e. opposite to the 1 kN vertical load. 16. Using the method of virtual work, determine the vertical displacement of point B of the beam shown in fig. Take E = 2x 105 MPa and I = 825x 107 mm4. Solution: l mMdx EI 0 Virtual moment, m. Remove the external load. Apply a unit vertical load at B. Consider a section XX at a distance x from B. m = -1 * x (Hogging moment) Real moment, M. Using the same x co-ordinate, the internal moment (due to the given loading) M is formulated as, M = -25. *.x/2 M = -12.5x2 ∆= DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING/ FMCET
