Structural Mechanics Quiz # STM 01This section consists of quiz covering topics related to an introductory course in Structural Mechanics/Strength of Materials.

Select the most appropriate answer for the following questions. 

1 
If the outward normal on an area is in the positive
xdirection, and the force acting on it is in the negative
zdirection, 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 cm^{2}. 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
