Steel Construction Part B – Quiz and Interview Questions

Structural design is a process by which a structure required to perform a given function is proportioned to satisfy certain performance criteria (size, shape, etc.) in a safe and economic way. To a large extent design is a pencil and paper exercise (electronic computation must also be included in the list of design tools), by which a mathematical model of the real structure is tested for adequate
performance.

1. The basic premise of the elastic design method is that the attainment of the yield stress at any point in a structure marks the end of acceptable behavior, any further increase in stress will lead to permanent strain in the material.
2.

Which of the following is not an Ultimate Limit State in design?

3. When a column buckles under an axial load, Stress in column cross-section =
4.

If material has infinite strength, characteristic Euler Stress at zero slenderness ratio =

5. When the buckling stress is greater than the yield stress the maximum load that the strut can carry =
6. Slenderness of a member depends on
7. Which of the following is not a Serviceability Limit State in design?
8. Where steel beams support concrete slabs a reduction in steel beam weight is possible by interconnecting beam and slab. The resulting two-material beam is known as a _____________.
9. Where a beam is provided with inadequate lateral restraint or has inadequate lateral stiffness it will fail, this is called
10. Which of the following section will have highest moment capacity?

Structural design is a process by which a structure required to perform a given function is proportioned to satisfy certain performance criteria (size, shape, etc.) in a safe and economic way. To a large extent design is a pencil and paper exercise (electronic computation must also be included in the list of design tools), by which a mathematical model of the real structure is tested for adequate
performance. It is only for very large or novel structures that testing on physical models or full-size prototypes is carried out. Thus, the designer is very much more circumscribed than for example his counterpart in aeronautical or marine engineering, where prototype testing is commonplace.

There are in practice two aspects of a structure which are not easily quantified: the strength of the materials from which it is constructed and the magnitude of the loads which it must resist. Take Quiz on steel Above.
