Q. 11.1

An aluminium shaft \left(\sigma_{y p}=330  MPa \right) of circular cross-section with 20 mm diameter is subjected to an axial load, P = 50.0 kN. Using the octahedral shear stress criterion of failure by yielding, determine
(a) the torque T that can be applied to initiate yielding;
(b) the torque T that can be applied to the shaft, if it is designed with a factor of safety of 1.75 for both P and T against the initiation of yielding.

Step-by-Step

Verified Solution

We first calculate the stresses produced due to P and T as follows:

\sigma_{x x}=\frac{P}{A}=\frac{50\left(10^3\right)}{\pi(20)^2 / 4}  N / mm ^2=159.15  MPa

and            \tau_{x y}=\frac{16 T}{\pi d^3}=\frac{16 T}{\pi(20)^3}=6.366\left(10^{-4}\right) T  MPa

where T is in Nmm.

(a) Failure theory to be followed is octahedral shear stress, using which we can write by considering \sigma_{y y}=\sigma_{z z}=\tau_{y z}=\tau_{z x}=0 from Eq. (11.44) and using the values of I_1 \text { and } I_2 :

\sqrt{I_1^2-3 I_2}=\sigma_{ yp }                (11.44)

\sigma_{x x}^2+3 \tau_{x y}^2=\sigma_{ yp }^2            (1)

Therefore,

159.15^2+3 \tau_{x y}^2=330^2

or                \tau_{x y}=166.9  MPa =6.366\left(10^{-4}\right) T

Thus,

T = 262.17 Nm

The torque that can be applied to the shaft without causing yielding is: 262.17 Nm

(b) If same factor of safety is used, then Eq. (1) becomes

\sigma_{x x}^2+3 \tau_{x y}^2=\left\lgroup \frac{\sigma_{ yp }}{\text { factor of safety }} \right\rgroup^2

\Rightarrow 159.15^2+3 \tau_{x y}^2=\left\lgroup \frac{330}{1.75} \right\rgroup^2

\Rightarrow \tau_{x y}=58.4  MPa =6.366\left(10^{-4}\right) T

⇒ T = 91737.4 Nmm = 91.74 Nm

Hence, the applied torque is 91.74 Nm
