A vertical column has two moments of inertia (i.e. I_{xx} and I_{yy} ). The column will tend to buckle in the direction of the

The neutral axis of the crosssection a beam is that axis at which the bending stress is

Euler's formula holds good only for

The object of caulking in a riveted joint is to make the joint

A steel bar of 5 mm is heated from 15° C to 40° C and it is free to expand. The bar Will induce

A body is subjected to a tensile stress of 1200 MPa on one plane and another tensile stress of 600 MPa on a plane at right angles to the former. It is also subjected to a shear stress of 400 MPa on the same planes. The maximum normal stress will be

Two shafts 'A' and 'B' transmit the same power. The speed of shaft 'A' is 250 r.p.m. and that of shaft 'B' is 300 r.p.m. The shaft 'B' has the greater diameter.

A thick cylindrical shell having r_{o} and r_{i} as outer and inner radii, is subjected to an internal pressure (p). The maximum tangential stress at the inner surface of the shell is

The stress induced in a body, when suddenly loaded, is __________ the stress induced when the same load is applied gradually.
