What is the shape of the interaction curve for bolts subjected to both tension and shear?
Bolts A, B, C, D, E, F form a regular hexagon. Which sets of bolts will be equally stressed?
For an eccentric connection, what is the likely location of the Neutral Axis.?
Statement I: In an out of plane eccentrically loaded connection as shown in the figure, criticality test for axial stress in the lower bolt can be skipped.
Statement II: The lower bolt is unstressed since all compressive load is transferred through bearing.
For the given bracket column assembly, the force carried by the central bolt will be:
Diurnal declination is
Which of these statements is wrong?
A 3m thick clay layer over an impervious stratum is underlain by a 2m thick layer of sand. The region is initially dry. Find out the change in the value of effective stress in the short term at the middle of the clay layer if the region is suddenly flooded.
