1. The electric motor exerts a 500 N m


torque the aluminum shaft ABCD when is
rotating at a constant speed. Knowing
that G = 27 GPa and that the torques
exerted on pulleys B and C are as shown,
determine the angle of twist between (a)
B and C, (b) B and D.

specifications
require
that
the
displacement of D should not exceed 15
mm from the time the punch first touches
the plastic sheet to the time it actually
penetrates it. Determine the required
diameter of shaft BC if the shaft is made
of a steel with G=77 GPa and =80
MPa.

2. The long bolt passes through the 30mm-thick plate. If the force in the bolt
shank is 8 kN, determine the average
normal stress in the shank, the average
shear stress along the cylindrical area of
the plate defined by the section lines a-a,
and the average shear stress in the bolt
head along the cylindrical area defined
by the section lines b-b.

4. Two vertical forces are applied to a


beam of the cross section shown.
Determine the maximum tensile and
compressive stresses in portion BC of the
beam.

3. A hole is punched at A in a plastic


sheet by applying a 600-N force P to end
D of lever CD, which is rigidly attached
to the solid cylindrical shaft BC. Design

5. If the shaft shown in Figure 5 has a
diameter of 40 mm, determine the
absolute maximum bending stress in the
shaft.
