QUESTION: 1

Solution:

QUESTION: 2

### Two plates are fixed together by means of rivets. Both rivets and plates are made of plain carbon steel 10C4 with yield strength of 250 MPa. The load of 5 kN is applied on both ends of the plates and the factor of safety is 2.5. Determine shear stress according to the principle of shear stress theory

Solution:

According to shear stress theory

QUESTION: 3

### The normal stresses and shear stresses are applied on the body are σx= 250 MPa, σ y= 180 MPa, and τxy= 80 MPa, respectively. Determine the normal stress at an oblique plane-making angle 60° with the horizontal axis.

Solution:

QUESTION: 4

A flat plate 30mm wide and “t”mm wide is subjected to a tensile force of 5kN. The plate has a circular hole of diameter 15mm with the centre coinciding with the diagonal intersection point of the rectangle. If stress concentration factor=2.16, find the thickness of the plate if maximum allowable tensile stress is 80N/mm².

Solution:

σ=P/ (w-d) x t

σ=5000/(30-15)xt ;

σ(max)=K x σ

σ(max)=2.16 x σ

σ(max)=720/t;

Also, σ(max)=80.

so 80 = 720/t

t = 9 mm

QUESTION: 5

A 35 mm diameter beam is subjected to a reversed bending whose ultimate strength of the material is 450 MPa. Determine the endurance strength, take K a = 0.82, Kb = 0.85

Solution:

QUESTION: 6

Two circular plates are clamped together by means of a bolt and nut with washer and the diameter of the bolt is 50 mm. The young’s modulus of the bolt and plates are 207 GPa and 71 GPa respectively. The initial preload in the bolt is 5 kN and the total length of the bolt is 80 mm. Determine the wrench torque required to create the preload

Solution:

(Mt) t =Torque required to overcome thread friction & reduce the preload

(Mt)1 =t orque required to overcome collar fiction between the nut and the washer.

Mt = 0.098P i d + 0.105P 1 d = 0.203P 1 d = 0.203×5000× 0.05

Mt = 5.075N-m

QUESTION: 7

For the diagram shown below, determine the thickness of weld whose permissible shear stress is 100 MPa.

Solution:

Centre of gravity ‘a’ is located at ‘e’ = 25 + 100 = 125mm

Moment couple (M) = p × e = 10000× 125 = 1250000Nmm

QUESTION: 8

Two plates subjected to a tensile force of 50 kN are fixed together by means of two rivets perpendicular to the direction of the applied load. The tensile yield strength of the plates is 250 MPa. Factor of safety is 2.5. Neglect the stress concentration. The diameter of the rivet using the shear stress theory is ________ mm.

Solution:

QUESTION: 14

Match List-I with List-II and select the correct answer using the codes given below the lists

List – I

(a) Activating force on the brake is zero

(b) Design of new friction lining

(c) Friction force helps to reduce the magnitude of activating force

List – II

2. Self-Energizing brake

3. Uniform pressure theory

4. Partially self-energizing brake

5. Uniform Wear theory

6. One module

Solution:

Activating force on the brake is zero is called Self-Energizing brake.

For a new friction lining, uniform pressure theory is used.

The friction force helps to reduce the magnitude of the actuating force P and a brake is called a partially self-energizing brake.

Addendum of gear is generally taken equal to 1 module.
