      Saw tooth serrations

    • B.

      Two or more tabs

    • C.

      Thin metal places

    Correct Answer
    A. Saw tooth serrations
    Explanation
    A sake proof washer is a type of washer that is designed to prevent loosening or rotation of a fastener. The saw tooth serrations on the washer create a locking effect when it is tightened against a surface, providing resistance to vibration and preventing the fastener from coming loose. The saw tooth serrations act like tiny teeth that dig into the surface, increasing the friction and ensuring a secure connection. This feature makes the washer effective in applications where maintaining tightness is crucial, such as in machinery or automotive assemblies.

    Identification of corrosion for aluminum alloy is present in ______ colour

    • A.

      White

    • B.

      Greenish film

    • C.

      Red

    Correct Answer
    A. White
    Explanation
    Corrosion on aluminum alloy is typically identified by the presence of a white color. This white film is a result of oxidation and the formation of aluminum oxide on the surface of the alloy. As aluminum reacts with oxygen in the air, it forms a protective layer of aluminum oxide, which appears as a white powdery substance. This white corrosion is a common indication of deterioration and can be used to identify the presence of corrosion on aluminum alloys.

    A pulley system has an efficiency of 80% with a velocity ratio of 15, the force required to lift a load of 290kg is

    • A.

      24.2kg

    • B.

      34.80kg

    • C.

      23.2k

    Correct Answer
    A. 24.2kg
    Explanation
    The efficiency of a pulley system is defined as the ratio of output work to input work. In this case, the efficiency is given as 80%. The velocity ratio is the ratio of the distance moved by the effort to the distance moved by the load. Given that the velocity ratio is 15, it means that for every 15 units of distance moved by the effort, the load moves 1 unit of distance.

    To calculate the force required to lift the load, we can use the formula:

    Force = (Load / Velocity Ratio) / Efficiency

    Plugging in the values, we get:

    Force = (290 kg / 15) / 0.8 ≈ 24.2 kg

    Therefore, the force required to lift the load of 290 kg is approximately 24.2 kg.

    • B.

      Turnbuckles

    • C.

      Locking wires

    Correct Answer
    B. Turnbuckles
    Explanation
    Turnbuckles are commonly used to tension cables. They consist of a metal body with right-hand and left-hand threaded ends, allowing for easy adjustment of the tension in the cable. By rotating the body, the distance between the ends can be increased or decreased, effectively tightening or loosening the cable. This makes turnbuckles a versatile and convenient tool for tensioning cables in various applications, such as in construction, marine, and suspension systems. Bolts and nuts can also be used to tension cables, but turnbuckles offer a more adjustable and precise method. Locking wires, on the other hand, are typically used for safety purposes to prevent bolts and nuts from loosening due to vibration or other factors.

    • A.

      Ball and Roller Bearings

    • B.

      Plain Bearing

    • C.

      Ball bearing only

    Correct Answer
    A. Ball and Roller Bearings
    Explanation
    Inner and outer bearing races are found in ball and roller bearings. Bearing races are the surfaces on which the balls or rollers of the bearing rotate. The inner race is the ring that is mounted on the rotating shaft, while the outer race is the ring that is mounted in the bearing housing. Both races are essential components of ball and roller bearings as they provide support and guidance for the rolling elements, allowing for smooth and efficient rotation. Plain bearings do not have separate inner and outer races, making ball and roller bearings the correct answer.

    What is the main purpose of a matrix in a composite?

    • A.

      To withstand load from the fibre

    • B.

      To accommodate fibre in a better pattern

    • C.

      To transfer stresses to the fibre

    Correct Answer
    C. To transfer stresses to the fibre
    Explanation
    The main purpose of a matrix in a composite is to transfer stresses to the fiber. In a composite material, the matrix acts as a medium that holds the fibers together and distributes external loads or stresses to the fibers. The matrix material is typically weaker and more ductile than the fibers, allowing it to absorb and transfer stresses to the stronger fibers, thereby enhancing the overall strength and performance of the composite material.

    What type of corrosion is caused by two mating surfaces having slight relative motion?

    • A.

      Electrochemical

    • B.

      Fretting

    • C.

      Pitting

    Correct Answer
    B. Fretting
    Explanation
    Fretting corrosion is caused by the slight relative motion between two mating surfaces. It occurs when there is repetitive contact and rubbing between the surfaces, leading to the formation of wear particles and the degradation of the material. This type of corrosion is often observed in mechanical systems such as joints, connectors, and fasteners, where the movement between the surfaces is minimal but continuous. Fretting corrosion can result in material loss, surface damage, and the formation of pits or cracks, which can compromise the integrity and functionality of the components.

    • A.

      Remove any internal stresses caused by cold working

    • B.

      Prevent the rivets from age hardening

    • C.

      Allow the rivets to age harden

    Correct Answer
    B. Prevent the rivets from age hardening
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to prevent the rivets from age hardening. Age hardening is a process in which a metal alloy becomes harder and stronger over time due to the precipitation of solute atoms. By keeping the 2024 DD alloy rivets in refrigeration, the temperature is lowered, which slows down the aging process and prevents the rivets from becoming overly hardened. This helps to maintain the desired properties and performance of the rivets.
