- To keep the intensity of bearing pressure between the column base and concrete compressive and to vary from zero to 2P/BL, the ratio of the moment M to the axial load P should be
- To keep the intensity of bearing pressure between the column base and concrete, compressive throughout the length of the column base, the ratio of the moment M to axial load P should be
- An axial loaded column is supported on a slab base whose projection is 8 cm. If the intensity of pressure from concrete is 40 kg/cm2 and allowable bending stress in slab base is 1890 kg/cm2 , the thickness (t) of the slab base, is
- When the ratio of the moment M to axial load P is greater than L/6, the resultant of the compressive bearing pressure which acts at a distance Y from one side, is given by
- When the ratio of the moment M to axial load P is greater than L/6, the resultant of the compressive bearing pressure which acts at a distance Y from one side, is given by
- In a gusseted base, when the end of the column is machined for complete bearing on the base plate, then the axial load is assumed to be transferred to base plate
- In a gusseted base, when the end of the column is machined for complete bearing on the base plate, then the axial load is assumed to be transferred to base plate
- As per IS: 800, in the plastic design, which of the following pairs are correctly matched? Working Loads Load factor (i) Dead load 1.7 (ii) Dead Load + imposed load 1.7 (iii) Dead load + load due to wind or 1.3 seismic forces (iv) Dead load + imposed load + load 1.7 due to wind or seismic forces Of these statements
- The equivalent axial tensile load Pe, which produces an average axial tensile stress in the section equivalent to the combined stress due to axial tension P and bending M, at the extreme fibre of the section, is given by (where Z is the section modulus of the section).
- Battening is preferable when the (i) Column carries axial load only (ii) Space between the two main components is not very large (iii) Column is eccentrically loaded The correct answer is
