Both youngs Modulus and shear Modulus are required as linear strain will be calculated by young modulus. Change in diameter can be calculated from Poissons ratio which depends on youngs modulus and shear modulus. All rights reserved by GATE Forum Educational Services Pvt. Ltd.

f =y

lnf = xlny differentiating with respect to x 1 f = lny f = flny f x x lny = y x y y 1 = yx + lnyxyx 1 yx 1 ( xlny + 1) y Now x = 2, y = 1 So
2 f =1 xy

( flny ) =

29.

y + 2y + y = 0 D + 2D + 1 = 0 i.e. (D + 1) = 0, D = 1, 1

So solution will be y= ( C1 + C2 ) e x Now given, y=0 at x=0 and y=0 at x=1 So we get C1 = C2 = 0 y = constant y ( 0.5) = 0 32. Let FS be the shear stress T = f 16 d = 51MPa, f = Tensile stress = 50MPa f

At node P TPQ cos 45 + TPR cos 60 +F = 0........ (1) TPQ sin 45 = TPR sin 60 .................. (2 ) from these two equations we can find out TPQ and TPR in terms of F. Now, At node Q. TQR = TPQ cos 45

F P TPQ 45 60 TPR

On solving we get, TQR = 0.63F 35. Given spring system forms a parallel combination

Direction of heat flow is always normal to surface of constant temperature. So, for surface P ,

From energy conservation, heat rate at P = Heat rate at Q 0.1 1 = 0.1 2 dx Q dT dy P dT = 20 K / m dy

Riser takes care of solidification/contraction in liquid state and phase transition. So volume of metal compensated from the riser = 3% + 4% = 7% Heat supplied by power source = Heat required melting efficiency transfer efficiency welding power = cross sectional area welding speed 10 .5.7210 = 5 10 V V = 14 mm / s

V = 180m / min, F = 0.20mm / rev r = 0.5, = rake angle = 7 = shear angle r cos tan = = 28 1 r sin Now shear force wt 1 s Fs = sin Fs = 320KN 83. From Merchants theory 2 + = 90 = Friction Angle = 90 +7 2 28 = 41 = tan = .87 Form Merchant circle FC = R cos ( ) ....... (1) and R = cos ( + ) Fs ........
