Mechanics of Solids (Assignment on Chapter 6)

Q1. A solid circular shaft transmits 75kW power at 200 rpm. Calculate the shaft diameter, if twist is not to exceed

1° in 2 meters length of shaft, and shear stress is limited to 50 MN/m 2 .Take G=100 GN/m 2 .

Q2. A hollow steel shaft is made to replace a solid wrought iron shaft of the same external diameter, the material

being 35% stronger than the iron. Find what fraction of outside diameter the internal maybe. Also, neglecting the

coupling, find the percentage saving in weight by substitution, assuming that steel is 2% heavier than wrought

iron.

Q3. A solid shaft of mild steel 200mm in diameter is to be replaced by hollow shaft of alloy of steel for which the

allowable shear stress is 22% greater. If the power to be transmitted is to be increased by 20% and the speed of

rotation is increased by 6%, determine the maximum internal diameter of the hollow shaft. The external diameter

of the hollow shaft is to be 200 mm.

Q4. Fig. Q4 shows a composite shaft .If 2kN-m torque is applied at the junction, determine the maximum shear

stress developed in steel and copper shaft. Assume G steel =2G copper .

A circular shaft of length 2 m is subjected to a torque of 90 kN-m subjected to a maximum shear of 90 MN/m 2 .Find a) the diameter of the shaft. b) As a part of design modification to reduce the weight of the shaft, the above shaft to be replaced by the one hollow shaft of the same material. There is restriction for outer diameter of the shaft cannot be increased more that 20%.Find he inner radii and the outer radii.
