Q.9. A column of mild steel is 3.50M long with both its ends are fixed. If the shape of
column is as per figure find the safe axial load on the column.

## Q.10.(a) A T. section 150mm x 120 mm x 20 mm is used as a strut of 4 M long with

hinged at both its ends. Calculate the crippling load, if youg modulus for the material be
200 GPa.
(b) An I- section joist 400 x 200 x 20 mm and 6 M long is used as a strut with both ends
fixed. What is Eulers' crippling load for the column? Take young modulus for joist as 200
GPa.
Q.11. A built up column consisting of 150 mm x 100 mm RSI with 120 m x 12 m plate
riveted to each flange. Calculate the safe load, the column can carry if it is 4 M long
having one end fixed and other end hinged with a factor of safety 3.5. Take the properties
of joist as Area = 2167 mm2.
Ixx = 8.391 x 106 mm4, Iyy = 0.948 x 106 mm4.
Assume the yield stress 3.15 MPa and Rankine constant(a) = 1/7500
