# Strength of Materials MCQs Thin Cylinder due to Hoop Stress

1 - Question

Which of the following stress can also be known as hoop stress?
a) Axial stress
b) Longitudinal stress
c) Fluid stress
d) Circumferential stress
Explanation: Circumferential stress in the shell = f = Total pressure / resisting section f = pdl/2tl f = pd/2t. Circumstantial stress can also be known as hoop stress.

2 - Question

A water main of 1.5 m diameter and 20 mm thick is subjected to an pressure of 1.5N/mm2. Calculate the circumferential stress induced in the pipe.
a) 78.65 N/mm2
b) 68.45 N/mm2
c) 56.25 N/mm2
d) 60.85 N/mm2
Explanation: Diameter of water main = 1500 mm and internal pressure = 1.5 N/mm2 Thickness = 20 mm Hoop stress = pd/2t = 1500 × 1.5/ 2× 20. = 56.25 N/mm2.

3 - Question

Which of the following method is also known as overhead irrigation method?
a) Drip Irrigation
b) Sprinkler
c) Contour
d) Check flooding
Explanation: Sprinkler irrigation method is used where the soil is erodable type and high permeable. It is also known as overhead irrigation. The sprinkler method requires a large investment in installing.

4 - Question

a) 0.08mm
b) 0.002 mm
c) 1.2 mm
d) 0.011

Explanation: The average diameter of particles of silt is 0.002 mm.

 Group Average diameter in mm Sand 2 to 0.06 mm Silt 0.06 to 0.002 mm Clay < 0.002 mm

5 - Question

pH is measured in ____
a) gram / litre
b) gram/cm
c) cusecs
d) cumecs
Explanation: pH value in a chemical term which shows acidity or alkalinity of the matter. The pH value is a logarithm of the reciprocal of the hydrogen in concentration measured in gram per litre.

6 - Question

Soil moisture stress is defined as the sum of soil moisture tension and ______ pressure of soil solution.
a) Weed
b) Perforated
c) Osmatic
d) Uplift
Explanation: The increase in the force caused by salts is called osmatic pressure. The soil moisture stress is defined as the sum of soil moisture tension and osmotic pressure of soil solution.

7 - Question

In coarse textured sandy soils, the field capacity can be achieved in _________
a) 1 to 3 days
b) 2 to 5 days
c) 3 to 7 days
d) 5 to 8 days
Explanation: The moisture content held by soil after gravitational water has drained off from a saturated soil is called field capacity. In coarse textured soils, the field capacity can be achieved in 1 to 3 days.

8 - Question

Acid in the rain was first detected by ___________
a) Lacy Film
b) Angus smith
c) Graeme Robert
d) Mesh swann
Explanation: The amount of acid which falls as towards earth with the rain water and snow is called acid rain. The acid in the rain water was detected for the first time by Robert Angus Smith in 1872.

9 - Question

_________ causes deterioration of buildings and monuments.
a) Acid rain
b) Green house effect
c) Global warning
d) Ozone layer depletion
Explanation: Acid rain causes a number of harmful effects below pH 5.1. The effects are visible in the aquatic system even at pH less than 5.5. It causes deterioration of buildings especially made of marble. It damages stone statues, metals and car finishes.

10 - Question

Expand CFC _________
a) Chlorofluorochloride
b) Carbonfluorochlorine
c) Chlorofluorocarbon
Explanation: CFC stands for Chlorofluorocarbon. It is one of the major gases of the greenhouse. It is released from refrigerators, air conditioners etc.

11 - Question

______ is mainly responsible for ozone depletion in the stratosphere.
a) CFC
b) MNC
c) ESC
d) FSC
Explanation: Over last 450 million years, the earth had a natural sunscreen in the stratosphere called the ozone layer. This layer filters out harmful ultraviolet rays from the sunlight and the protects various life forms on the earth. CFC is mainly responsible for ozone depletion in the stratosphere.

12 - Question

Fossil fuels are example for ________
a) Exhaustible resources
b) Renewable resources
c) Non renewable resources
d) Inexhaustible resources
Explanation: Non renewable resources lack the ability of recycling and replacement. The substances with a very long recycling time are also regarded to be non renewable resources. Ex: biological species, minerals &fossil fuels.
