to udl over its entire span. (06 Marks)
b. A suspension cable has span of 120m and dips by 10m and carries a load of 101(N/m over its
entire span. Find:
i) The length of the cable
ii) Maximum and minimum tension in the cable with its location and direction.
iii) What could be the force transmitted to the supporting tower when the cable passes
over a smooth pulley fixed on top of the tower. Assume angle of back stay as 30? to
vertical. (10 Marks)

8 A three hinged parabolic arch of span 30m has its left and height supports at 12m and 4m
below crown point. The arch carries a load of 80kN at distance of 4m to the left of crown C
and an udl of 15kN/m between crown and right support. Find the B.M. under the point load,
maximum bending moment on the right portion of the arch. Also find normal thrust and
radial shear at the point load. (16 Marks)

which is at a distance of 'a' from left support 'A' in a simply supported beam AB of span
`I,' and traversed by a udl w/mt run which is shorter span. (06 Marks)
A beam has a span of 20m subjected to two point loads 80kN and 40kN 2m apart rolls from
