Q3 A continuous beam ABCD consists of three spans AB= 6m, BC= 5m CD= 5m. Span AB is loaded with an udl of 2kN/m ,BC with a point load of 5 kN at a distance of 3m from B, and CD with a point load of 8 KN at a distance of 2.5 m from C. Ends A and D are fixed. Determine the bending moments at the supports and plot the bending moment diagram.( Slope deflection method) (15) Q4 Analyse the frame by moment distribution method. (15) Q5 A two hinged parabolic arch of span 40m and rise 6m carries an uniformly distributed load of 30 kN/m for the left half of the span and a unit load of 100 kN at 5m from right support. Determine the horizontal thrust maximum positive and negative moment shear force and normal thrust at 10m from the left support. (15) Q6 A suspension cable of 75 m horizontal span and central dip 6 m has a stiffening girder hinged at both ends. The dead load transmitted to the cable including its own weight is 1500 kN. The girder carries a live load of 30 kN/m uniformly distributed over the left half of the span. Assuming the girder to be rigid, calculate the shear force and bending moment in the girder at 20 m from left support. Also calculate the maximum tension in the cable. (15) Q7 A continuous beam ABCD hinged at ends has 3 spans AB, BC and CD each of 10m length. Span AB carries a uniformly distributed load of 40 kN/m, BC carries a unit load of 100 KN at 4m from end B and span CD carries a uniformly distributed load of 20 KN/m. Analyse the beam by flexibility matrix method. (15) Find the shape factor for the unsymmetrical I beam shown in figure. (10) Q8 a)
