## Instructions to the Candidates:

Answer one full question from each unit
UNIT - I
1. Derive the expression for deflection surface of a simply supported (20)
rectangular plate subjected to uniformly distributed load. Use Navier's
approach. Obtain the solution if a point load is acting at (1;, rl) on the plate.
Indicate the limitation of the above approach.

## 2. A simply supported rectangular plate is subjected to uniformly distributed (20)

load of intensity qo per unit area . Obtain the equation for deflection surface
and calculate the maximum deflection of a square plate Adopt Levi's
approach.
UNIT - II
3. Derive the simple solution of an elliptical plate with clamped edges . The (20)
plate is subjected to uniform transverse load. Deduce the bending moment

## of a beam with fixed ends in a plane strain condition.

4. Derive the expression for deflection of a simply supported circular plate (20)
without a central hole subjected to a uniform loading 'q' per unit area and
compute the maximum deflection of a simply supported circular plate of one

UNIT - III

## 5. a) Explain the Whitney method of analysis of folded plates. (10)

b) Explain the structural t=.^.--v:-1r o^ folded plates as characterized by plate and (10)
slab action.
6. a) Explain the following (i) edge shear (ii) stress distribution and (iii) effect of (10)
