Strength of Materials Internship Test


Intern has to take Strength of Materials 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 Strength of Materials topic.

1. Some structural members subjected to a long time sustained loads deform progressively with time especially at elevated temperatures. What is such a phenomenon called?
(A) Fatigue
(B) Creep
(C) Creep relaxation
(D) Fracture
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: Creep is the deformation progressively with time. It comes when the body is subjected to long time load. After the instant deflection due to load, the deformation occurs slowly with time.

2. What the number that measures an object’s resistance to being deformed elastically when stress is applied to it?
(A) Elastic modulus
(B) Plastic modulus
(C) Poisson’s ratio
(D) Stress modulus
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: The elastic modulus is the ratio of stress to strain.

3. Highest value of stress for which Hooke’s law is applicable for a given material is called ____________
(A) Stress limit
(B) Strain limit
(C) Proportional limit
(D) Significant limit
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: The hooke’s law is valid only when the stress is proportional to the strain, that is only in the proportionality limit.

4. Where is the necking region?
(A) The area between lower yield point and upper yield point
(B) The area between the plastic limit and elastic limit
(C) The area between the ultimate point and initial point
(D) The area between the ultimate point and rupture
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Necking is a tensile strain deformation which is cased in after the ultimate amount of stress occurs in the material.

5. Which one of the following pairs is NOT correctly matched?
(A) Visco-elastic – small plastic zone
(B) Orthotropic material – different properties in three perpendicular directions
(C) Strain hardening material – stiffening effect felt at some stage
(D) Isotropic material – same physical property in all directions at a point
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Visco-elastic material exhibit a mixture of creep and elastic after effects at room temperature. Thus their behaviour is time dependent. Materials with different properties in different directions are called anisotropic. Orthotropic material is a special case of an anisotropic material in three mutually perpendicular directions. However, these are symmetric about any axis.
