1. An angle section is of 100mm wide and 120mm deep overall. Both the flanges of the angle are 10mm thick. Determine the moment of inertia about the centroidal axes X – X and Y – Y.
2. A spherical shell of 1m internal diameter and 5mm thick is filled with a liquid under pressure until its volume increase by 0.2×10^6 mm^3. Determine the pressure exerted by the liquid on the shell. Take E=2×10^5 N/mm^2 and 1/m = 0.3.
3. Find Ixx, Iyy, Kxx and Kyy of a ‘T’ section with flange 150mm x 20mm and web 100mm x 20mm.
4. Calculate the increase in volume of a boiler shell 3m long and 1.5m in diameter when subjected to an internal pressure of 2N/mm^2. The thickness is such that the maximum tensile stress is not to exceed 30N/mm^2. Take E=2.1×10^5 N/mm^2 and 1/m=0.28. also calculate the changes in diameter and length.
