MA2001/MP2001/AE2008 1 NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY SEMESTER 1 EXAMINATION 2012-2013 MA2001/MP2001/AE2008 - MECHANICS OF MATERIALS November/December 2012 Time Allowed: 2 ½ hours INSTRUCTIONS 1. This paper contains FIVE (5) questions and comprises 5 (FIVE) pages. 2. Answer ALL questions. 3. All questions carry equal marks. 4. This is a CLOSED-BOOK Examination. 5. A list of equations can be found on Page 5. 1. Figure 1(a) shows a beam ABC fixed at end A and free at end C. The beam has a uniform load q between A and B. A point load P acts on a rigid link connected to the beam at the free end C. Figure 1(b) shows the cross-section of the beam. Given: w = 200 mm, h = 120 mm, t = 20 mm, L = 2 m, e = 100 mm, P = 1 kN and q = 1 kN/m. (a) Draw the shear force and bending moment diagrams for the whole beam (indicating all critical values at A, B and C). State the maximum absolute shear force and bending moment on the beam. (12 marks) (b) Determine the maximum absolute normal stress and the maximum shearing stress on the beam. (8 marks) Figure 1(a) Figure 1(b) ATTENTION: The Singapore Copyright Act applies to the use of this document. Nanyang Technological University Library

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
