Exercise : Strength of Materials - Section 1
For a beam, as shown in the below figure, the maximum deflection is .
If the slenderness ratio for a column is 100, then it is said to be a __________ column.
A masonry dam may fail due to
In order to prevent crushing of masonry at the base of the dam, the maximum stress should be __________ the permissible stress of the soil.
When a body is subjected to two equal and opposite pushes, as a result of which the body tends to reduce its length, the stress and strain induced is compressive.
