The test paper is divided into two sections: Total Marks - 50

Section 1: Numerical – 20 Marks
Section 2: Theoretical – 30 Marks

Section 1- Numerical
1. We have a uniform bar, which is half a meter long. The area of cross section of the bar is
5 × 10-4 m2. Also, the Young s Modulus is 200 GPa. The density of bar is 7260 kg/m3. We
know that the bar is fixed from one end. See the figure given below:

We apply a 1kN load (consider the load to be static) axially at joint 2, along u2. Under
this condition, the stress induced in the bar is found out to be x MPa.

Also, the natural frequency of vibration is of the form:


Where, p and q are natural numbers and the fraction is in reduced form.

The value of (p+q) – (x+r) is?

2. There is a V – Belt drive that facilitates us to connect a motor to a compressor. Consider

the data that we have with us:

Motor – Pulley Compressor – Pulley

Pitch diameter (mm) 300 900
Speed (rpm) 1440 480
Coefficient of friction 0.2 0.2
The pulleys are a meter apart from each other (this is the center to center distance). The
belt can handle a maximum of 850N of tension. The density of composite material of
belt is 0.97g/cc. Refer to the below figure for cross – section of belt:

Based on the above data, if the number of belts required for this application are k ,
then the value of k2 is?

Section 2- Theoretical
