Mechanical Metallurgy Internship Test

Intern has to take Mechanical Metallurgy internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Mechanical Metallurgy topic.

1. True stress-strain curve always lies above the engineering stress-strain curve.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: True stress calculation considers the instantaneous area of the specimen in the calculation, whereas engineering stress considers the initial area of the specimen in the calculation. So, as the area is continuously reducing at constant load, the value of true stress keeps on increasing with respect to engineering stress.

2. Is it possible to determine the principal strains by Mohr’s circle?
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Strain on a body along different direction can be represented in the form of a second-degree polynomial equation. This equation on rearrangement converts into the equation of circle. And any stress in form of circle can be represented in form of Mohr’s circle.

3. Experimentally, strain in the material with high precision is measured by _________ method.
(A) calorimetry
(B) hardness testing
(C) bonded wire resistance gauge
(D) microscopy
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: Bonded wire resistance gauge or the SR-4 strain gauge is used for strain measurement. It measures the change in electrical resistivity of wire attached to the material with a change in the dimension of material.

4. In the case of pure normal forces, shear stresses develop in all planes except the planes where normal stresses are maximum.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: In this case, all planes feel equal to normal stresses. There is no shear stress on any of the plane. Because shear stress always cancels out.

5. For most isotropic metal the value of Poisson’s ratio is equal to ___________
(A) 0.5
(B) 1
(C) 0.33
(D) 0
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: Metals are crystalline and therefore, atomic arrangement is well defined. If this ordered structure of the atom is pulled in one direction, the atomic shift causes the contraction in the other two directions in well-defined pattern and contraction in a transverse direction. Generally, the calculated result comes around 1/3=0.33.
