2 Question 1 - Multiple choice (Total 30 Marks) Write your choices on the solution booklet. For example write “Question 2.7-Answer (e)”. 1.1 - Referring to the figure below, at which point or points is the bending moment zero? (6 Marks) (a) A, C and D (b) A and B (c) A and D (d) B and C 1.2 – Which of the following is a true statement? (6 Marks) (a) For a beam under bending moment, the normal strain distribution is linear across the section of the beam only when the material is elastic. (b) For a beam under bending moment, the normal strain distribution is linear across the section of the beam only when the cross-section is uniform (not composite). (c) For a beam under pure bending moment, shear stress distribution on a rectangular section of the beam is linear across the section. (d) For a beam under bending moment, the normal strain distribution is linear across the section of the beam even if the material is not elastic. 1.3 - Which of the following is not a true statement? (6 Marks) (a) The forces on the rigid-body may cause rotation of the body if net moment of forces about any arbitrary point is not zero. (b) The forces acting on the rigid-body automatically satisfy moment equilibrium
