Strength of Materials MCQs – Thin Cylinder Internal Pressure

1 - Question

The stress acts tangential to circumference is called ______ stress. a) Hoop b) Fluid c) Longitudinal d) Yield
View Answer Answer: a Explanation: The stress which is developed in the walls of the cylinder due to internal fluid pressure and which acts tangential to circumference is called hoop stress or circumferential stress.



2 - Question

The hoop stress is _____________ along the x axis. a) Tensile b) Parabolic c) Compressed d) Transverse
View Answer Answer: a Explanation: Hoop stress is also known as circumferential stress and it is tensile along x-axis. The total pressure along the diameter of the shell P = intensity of stress × Area.



3 - Question

The cylinder has a tendency to split up along _____________ due to circumferential stress. a) Area b) Radius c) Diameter d) Length
View Answer Answer: c Explanation: As a result of circumferential stress a cylinder has a tendency to split up along its diameter. Because of hoop stress, the failure is a longitudinal failure.



4 - Question

____________ is half the circumferential stress. a) Hoop stress b) Longitudinal stress c) Fluid stress d) Transverse stress
View Answer Answer: b Explanation: Longitudinal stress is developed along the walls of the cylinder in the shell due to internal fluid pressure on the ends. The longitudinal stress is half the circumferential stress.



5 - Question

Which of the following is also known as axial stress? a) Shear stress b) Longitudinal stress c) Bending stress d) Hoop stress
View Answer Answer: b Explanation: The stress which is developed due to internal fluid pressure on the ends is known as longitudinal stress. As a result of longitudinal stress, the cylinder has a tendency to be turn away longitudinally. It is also known as axial stress.



6 - Question

The layers of wood wearing thickness from ____________ to __________ is called veneers. a) 0.4 to 0.6 mm b) 0.5 to 0.8 mm c) 0.4 to 0.6 mm d) 0.5 to 0.7 mm
View Answer Answer: a Explanation: The layers or slices of wood varying thickness from 0.4 to 0.6 mm or more are called veneers. They are obtained by rotating a log of wood against a sharp knife.



7 - Question

_____________ is used as decorative facings. a) Plywood b) Veneers c) Ply ware d) Battens
View Answer Answer: b Explanation: Veneers are used in construction where light weight, moderate strength, non shrinkage and non splitting properties are required. Veneers are used for decorative facings.



8 - Question

Which of the following is known as block board? a) Batten board b) Plywood c) Fiber board d) Veneer
View Answer Answer: a Explanation: The strips which are glued together between two veneers one on either side are known as batten boards. The board is made with 25 mm with strips. It is also known as block board.



9 - Question

Which of the following is also known as pressed woods? a) Ply wood b) Ply ware c) Batten board d) Fiber wood
View Answer Answer: d Explanation: The boards which are made by pressing the mixture of saw dust, fibres of wood and glue are known as fibre boards or pressed woods or reconstructed wood.



10 - Question

Which of the following boards are used in making partitions covering? a) Lamin boards b) Particle boards c) Straw boards d) Eco board
View Answer Answer: a Explanation: The laminated boards having a core of strips not exceeding 7 mm thickness are glued together between two or more veneers are called laminated boards. Laminated boards are used in making partitions covering, packing cases and for floor coverings.



11 - Question

____________ boards are manufactured from sugarcane waste obtained from bagasse. a) Eco board b) Straw board c) Lamin board d) Particle board
View Answer Answer: a Explanation: Eco board is manufactured from sugarcane waste obtained from sugar factory known as “Bagasse”. These bagasse balls are broken into required small size particles. These boards possess the following advantages: i. These are durable ii. They possess good strength and workability.



12 - Question

Plastic is a ____________ substance. a) Eco friendly b) Inorganic c) Organic d) Natural
View Answer Answer: c Explanation: The plastic is one of the recent engineering materials which are widely used. The plastic is an organic substance made up of natural or synthetic resins.



13 - Question

Plastic possess tensile strength of _______________ a) 4.2 tonnes/cm2 b) 5.6 tonnes/cm2 c) 3.4 tonnes/cm2 d) 4.8 tonnes/cm2
View Answer Answer: b Explanation: Plastic can withstand wear and tear due to abrasion. The plastics are highly resistant to corrosion. They possess tensile strength about 5.6 tonnes per centimetre square (5.6 tonnes/cm2).



14 - Question

________ is an example of thermoplastic. a) Shellac b) Bakelite c) Phenol formaldehyde d) Urea formaldehyde
View Answer Answer: a Explanation: Thermoplastic softens by heating and hardens when cooled. This variety of plastic can be used by remoulding many numbers of times as required. The commercial forms of thermoplastic are shellac, vinyl plastics, and acrylic.



15 - Question

What is the minimum percentage of reinforcement provided in mild steel? a) 0.12 % of gross area b) 0.15 % of gross area c) 0.18 % of gross area d) 0.2 % of gross area
View Answer Answer: b Explanation: As per IS 456 – 2000, 0.12 % of gross area is required for HYSD bars [Tor steel] 0.15 % of gross area is required for mild steel.
