A flat bar 32 mm wide and 12 mm thick is loaded by a steady tensile load of 85 kN. The material is mild steel with yield point stress of 315 Nzmm-. Find the factor of safety based on the yield point. (8) A flat plate of width 60 mm has a central hole of 10 mm diameter. If the plate is subjected to an axial tensile load of 10 kN, determine the thickness of plate. Assume yield point stress 300 MPa and factor of safety as 2.5. (8) Or



A hot rolled steel shaft of 40 mm diameter is subjected to a torsional moment that varies from 330 Nm to - 110 Nm and an applied bending moment which rises from 440 Nm to - 220 Nm. The material of the shaft has an ultimate strength of 550 MN/m2 and yield strength of 410 MN/m2. Find the approximate factor of safety using Soderberg equation allowing endurance limit to be half the ultimate strength and size factor and surface finish factor to be 0.85 and 0.62 respectively. Design a hollow shaft to transmit 25 hp at 300 rpm. The loading is such that the maximum bending moment is 1000 Nm the maximum torsional moment is 500 Nm and axial thrust is 15 kN. The shaft is supported on rigid bearings 1500 mm apart. The inside diameter of the shaft is 0.8 times the outside diameter. The load is cyclic in nature and applied with shocks. The values of shock factors are Ci = 1.5 and Cm = 1.6. Or




Design a protective type of cast iron flange coupling for a steel shaft transmitting 15 kW at 200 rpm and having an allowable shear stress of 40 Nzmm-. The working stress in the bolt should not exceed 30 Nzmm-. Assume that the same material is used for shaft and key that the crushing stress is twice the value of its shear stress. The maximum torque is 25% greater than the full load torque. The shear stress for cast iron is 14 Nzrnm-.
