This set of Machine Design Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Riveted Joints Basics”.

1. Which of the following isn’t a main part of rivet?
b) Shank
c) Point

Explanation: There aren’t any threads in rivets.

2. A rivet is specified as a 20mm rivet. What does it mean?

d) Both head and shank dia 20mm

Explanation: Terminology is this way.

3. In hand riveting die is a part of hammer.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: Die is a part of hammer in machine riveting.

4. In hot riveting the shank portion is subjected to compressive stress.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: It is subjected to tensile stress as the head rests against the connected members to prevent reduction in length.

6. Two steel rods connected by cotter joint are subjected to 50 kN load each. What is the minimum diameter required of the rods? (Given: Yielding Stress= 400N/mm² ; Factor of Safety=6)
a) 31mm
b) 35mm
c) 36mm
d) 40mm

Explanation: d=√(4P/πσ) where σ= Yielding Stress/F.S ; d=30.90mm or 31 mm.

a) True
b) False

Explanation: Punching injures the metal in the vicinity of the hole.

9. Riveting is not recommended for aluminium alloys.
a) True
