1 Why do we have to make the assumption that plane sections plane?

In order to make calculation of stresses due to torsion easy, we need to make certain simplifying assumptions on the deformation pattern which is realistic. It is has been found from the rigorous solution procedure (elasticity solution) and from the experiments that the circular cross section members subjected to pure torsion in the elastic range satisfy very closely this condition of plane sections remain plane and rigid. By making this assumption, the solution procedure becomes simple as shown in the �basic concepts� section in the derivation for torsional stresses.

2 How about bars with non-axis symmetric cross section?
For bars with non-ax symmetric cross section, the assumption of plane section remain plane is not satisfied. Regions of the cross-section undergo deformations in the axial direction leading to �warping� of the section. There are again certain simplifying assumptions which are relaxation of the ax symmetric bar assumption that can be used to find stresses in a non-ax symmetric bar.

3 The formulae derived look very similar to beam and axial deformation formulae?
The formulae derived look very similar to beam and axial deformation formulae?
Yes, that�s true. In all the three derivations pertaining to axial, beam and torsional deformations, the assumption of plane section remains plane is used and it leads to very similar formulae for these three types of structural members.

4Is the derivation for composite axis symmetric bar subjected to torsion similar to the composite beam derivation?
Yes. Since plane sections remain plane assumption holds good for composite bar subjected to torsion, similar principle as derivation for composite beam can be used to solve for stresses in a composite bar subjected to torsion.

5 What if material is non-isotropic?
If the material is non-isotropic (i.e. anisotropic), then the elastic modulii will vary and thus the problem will be completely different with additional stresses appearing since there is a coupling between shear stresses and normal stresses for an anisotropic material.

6 What if material goes to plastic range?
Even, if the material goes to plastic range, plane sections remain plane assumption is assumed to hold. Therefore, the strains can be found out from which distribution of stresses can be derived from equilibrium principles.

7 What about non-linear elastic materials?
8 Why is the variation of shear strain with radius linear?
For non-linear elastic materials again, the elastic modulii are different and are functions of the strains. Therefore, while solving for stresses, appropriate constitutive law should be used before applying the equilibrium conditions.

9 What do we do for stepped shafts?

10 Why do they have a tapering change in c.s. for stepped shafts?
For stepped shafts, away from the abrupt change in the cross-section, the stresses can be computed using the same formulae derived taking appropriate diameter of the shaft portion in to consideration. (See: Worked out Examples: Stepped Shafts). At the region of change in geometry, stress concentrations can occur due to abrupt change radius. (refer to ,stress concentration, section of "Advanced Topics")

11 Why deal with torsion of an axis symmetric bar?

12 How do I solve for stresses in the case of impact torque on an axis symmetric bar?

13 Why is the variation of shear strain with radius linear?

14 This emanates from the fact that the cross-section rotates as a rigid body because of axis symmetry condition of the cross-sectional geometry and the anti-axis symmetry of the torque. Since the cross-section rotates as a rigid body, the amount of rotation is linear with respect to the variation in radius.

16 How do I solve for stresses in the case of impact torque on an axis symmetric bar?

GE Technical Interview Questions & Answers | Technical Interview Questions & Tips | Strength Of Materials Interview Questions

GE Stress of Material Questions

1Which type of shaft is preferred for power transmission, solid or hollow one?
Hollow shaft utilize material strength more efficiently, so hollow shaft used if you concerned about weight. But, when weight is not a concern, solid shaft is better (stronger, of course), easy to fabricate.

2.What is structurally stronger, solid steel or hollow steel?
If a solid and hollow shape have the same outside dimensions, the solid one is clearly stronger. The reason you see so many hollow sections is that they have an incredibly higher strength/weight ratio and can resist the same load with much less material used.

3.What will be the difference in torsional strength of hollow shaft & solid shaft of same outer diameter at equal load.
Compare the polar moment of inertia of the solid cross section to the hollow cross section. You�ll find that the difference between the two is equal to the polar moment of inertia of the portion removed from the hollow section.
The deflection of the shaft under a torsional load would be the product of the torsional load and the length of the shaft divided by the product of Polar Moment of inertia and modulus of rigidity of the shaft: theta=TL/JG.

4.What are the units for Poisson�s ratio?
It is a unit less quantity. Because it is one quantity divided by another quantity of the same units. In fact, even the parent quantities that define Poisson�s ratio are unit less. Strain has no units.

5.What is the difference between Stress and Pressure?
Stress=Resistive force/Area.
Pressure=Force/Area.
Stress is pull force and Pressure is push force.
.Heat Treatment Process HRC Stands for
2.Material OHNS Stands for HRC Stands for �Rockwell Hardness C scale
3.OHNS Stands for � Oil Hardenable Non Shrinkage steel

6.Function of Fly wheel
Flywheel stores the Kinetic Energy during the idle portion of the work cycle,and delivers this Kinetic Energy during peak-load.

7.Bullet Proof Glass is made up of which material?
Bulletproof glass is usually constructed using a strong but transparent material such as polycarbonate thermoplastic or by using layers of laminated glass. The desired result is a material with an appearance and light-transmitting behavior of standard glass but offers varying degrees of protection from small arms fire. The polycarbonate layer, usually consisting of products such as Cyrolon, Lexan and Tuffak, is often sandwiched between layers of regular glass. The use of plastic in the laminate provides impact-resistance, such as physical assault with a hammer, an axe, etc. The plastic provides little in the way of bullet-resistance. The glass, which is much harder than plastic, flattens the bullet and thereby prevents penetration. This type of bullet-resistant glass is usually 70-75 mm thick.

8.Difference between Performance and Efficiency?
Performance is the measure of quality of the work done by any machine. better the quality better will be the performance of that machine. while efficiency is the ratio of desired output to the required input for any machine.
Performance is about the quality that a machine or plant is producing suppose there are two machines, first produces the job of accuracy .002mm and the second one produce product of the accuracy .001mm. then the second one will have higher performance. while efficiency is the ratio of the o/p to the i/p. if same machines are producing 200 and 100 product per day respectively for the same i/p,then the eff. of the first machine will be high.

9 What are the causes of main engine black smoke?
There is many cause of black smoke.
1. It�s improper mixture of fuel supply by carburetor like very rich mixture so the fuel improper burn.
2. It�s when piston or piston ring is fail so back side cooling oil release in combustion chamber it cause black smoke.
3. Improper ignition system like not sufficient time of pressure rise delay period

GE Placement Paper : GE Placement Paper IIT Guwahati 02 December 2010

Dear Friends,

This is Sreedhar rao M.Tech (Structural Engg), IIT Guwahati. Here I am giving you brief discussion about GE.

Question Paper

Part 1: Aptitude, 10 questions (10 marks) this is common for all branches.

Part 2: Stress, 10 Technical questions (10 marks) this is common for Civil/Mechanical. Don,t expect much about written test. It is very simple without preparation, you can clear written.

In apptitude simple questions on flow chart based question, one question on numbers (just solving two equations, you can get answer), one question on cost and price, questions on time and work, one question on train (the length of train is 1.5 km and the time taken to cross 1km bridge is 10sec. If the bridge is 2km. How much time the same train to cross the bridge?). Finaly all were numericals. One more question:

Some of the reciprocals of two numbers is 1/12 and difference is 1/24 then find the smaller number of them? Better look at R.S. Aggarwal once. No questions on English.

In tecnical paper, as name suggests that it was completely on stress calculations. Simple numericals on hoop stress, formula for equavalent bending moment, principle stress diagram was given that sigma1=200Mpa, sigma2=-100Mpa and find pricipal strain?(E=250Mpa,nu=0.25). One diagram was given which was having steel and copper and options were given to choose which material will be subjected to tension and compression. Simple question on springs, spring has stiffness ok, if the spring was cut into 2 pieces what about the stiffness.

One question on ratios of solid and hollow shafts. See the text book once. One simple question on natural frequency, A cantilever beam is having weight 10N at free end. Find the natural frequecy?

I got 6/10 in aptitude, 8/10 in tech. I went for the interview. He asked me about my thesis work. Some simple questions on thesis work. I answered all expect one. I was thinking for that question. He asked me to leave that question. Then he moved to ask questions on mechanics. I answered 50% of mechanics questions. I was eliminated in techincal interview. Only two were placed in GE. One from mechanical and one fron structure. Some of my friends were also eliminated in HR round also.

The persons, who are working in complete finite element anlaysis have better chances to get placed in GE. My experience my help you in future. GE pay package was 6.35 lacs in hand.
