1. Define stress and its types
When a body is acted upon by some load (or) external force, it undergoes
deformation (i.e. change in shape or dimensions)

material, when the material is stressed within the elastic limit. This ratio is

9. What type of stress will be induced in a bar when the ends are restrained and
subjected to i) rise in temperature and ii) a fall in temperature? (April / May 04)
Thermal stresses: These are the stresses induced in a body due to
change in temperature. Thermal stresses are set up in a body, when the
temperature of the body is not allowed to expand or contract freely. i) Rise in
temperature compressive stress ii) a fall in temperature -tensile stress.

10. Define principal plane and principal stress.
The plane, which have no shear stress, are known as principal planes. Hence
principal planes are the planes of zero shear stress. These planes carry only
normal stresses.
The normal stresses, acting on a principal plane, are known as principal
stresses.

and that between modulus of elasticity and bulk modulus. (Nov/Dec 02)

13. What do you understand by the assumption, plane section remain plane even
When some external load acts on the beam, the shear force and bending
moments are set up at aii sections of the beam. Due to the shear force and bending
moment, the beam undergoes certain deformation. After removal of the load the beam
will come to its original position based on that assumption.
