b) A suspension bridge 120m span has three hinged stiffening girder supported by two cables having a central dip of 12m. The roadway has a width of 6m. The dead load on the bridge is 5KN/m2 while a live load is 10 KN/m~hich acts on left half of the span. Determine shear force and bending moment in girder at 30 m from the left end. Also fmd maximum and minimum tension in cable for the position of live load. (10M)

Q. 4 (a) Draw ILD for members HG, BG of the truss as shown in the figure. Assume that load is moving along the bottom chord. (10M)

b) A beam ofT-section; (flange 60mm x IOmm, web 100mm x 5mm) is 3m long and is simply supported at the ends. It carries a load of 4K.N inclined at 20 degrees to the vertical and passing through the centroid of the section. E = 200 GN/m2; Locate Neutral axis and find maximum and minimum compressive and tensile stress produced at critical section. (10M)

g - Grad Plus

b) A column 4m long of circular section made of cast iron with 200mm external diameter and 20mm thick is used as a column. Both ends are fixed. The column carries a load of 150KN at an eccentricity of 25mm from the axis of the column. Find extreme stress on the column section. Take E = 9.4 x 104 MPa (10M)

Q. 6) a) Explain the concept of shear centre and Unsymmetrical Beading. (4M)

b) Determine the absolute Bending Moment in a simply supported beam (girder). The loads are moving from left to right on the girder. Support A is roller and support B is a hinge. (8M)
