Civil Engineering Quiz

Test your knowledge of Civil Engineering and get prepared for the exams.



This section consists of quiz covering topics related to introductory course in Structural Mechanics/Strength of materials/Mechanics of deformable bodies.



Select the most appropriate answer for the following questions.


1 If the outward normal on an area is in the positive x-direction, and the force acting on it is in the negative z-direction, the stress developed on the area will be

(i) tensile stress             (ii) compressive stress             (iii) shear stress





2 A force of 40 kN is acting at an angle of 60 to an area of 4 cm2. Calculate the average shear stress on that area.

(i) 5 MPa                        (ii) 50 MPa                              (iii) 0.5 MPa




3 A bolt is being used in a lap joint to connect two steel plates which are carrying a tensile force. the stress developed in the bolt will be

(i) tensile                          (ii) compressive                     (iii) shear




4 The failure stress of a material was found to be 100 MPa. find the allowable stress if the factor of safety is to be 2.0

(i) 50 MPa                        (ii) 200 MPa                        (iii) 25 MPa




5 In a tensile test experiment, the length of a solid cylindrical rod increased from 50 cm to 52 cm. find the average normal strain in the rod.

(i) 0.25                             (ii) 0.04                            (iii) 0.002
