3. The phenomenon of slow extension of materials having constant load, i.e. increasing with the time is 
4. In a bar of large length when held vertically and subjected to a load at its lower end, its own-weight produces additional stress. The maximum stress will be
5. The law which states, "within elastic limits strain produced is proportional to the stress producing it", is known as
6. In a three hinged arch, the third hinge is generally kept at
7. Stress in a beam due to simple bending, is
8. A cantilever beam rectangular in cross-section is subjected to an isolated load at its free end. If the width of the beam is doubled, the deflection of the free end will be changed in the ratio of
9. A cantilever carrying a uniformly distributed load W over its full length is propped at its free end such that it is at the level of the fixed end. The bending moment will be zero at its free end also at
10. If a constant section beam is subjected to a uniform bending moment throughout, its length bends to

14. n and j are numbers of members and joints in a frame. It contains redundant members if
15. A cylinder is said to be thin if the ratio of its thickness and diameter, is less than
16. In a three hinged arch, the shear force is usually
