2. Two rods, made of plain carbon steel 40C8 (ultimate tensile strength =380
N/mm2), are to be connected by means of a cotter joint. The diameter of
each rod is 50 mm and the cotter is made from steel plate of 15 mm
thickness. Calculate the dimensions of the socket end making the following
assumptions:
a) The yield strength in compression is twice of the tensile yield strength.
b) The yield strength in shear is 50% of the tensile yield strength.
The factor of safety is 6.
3. A crane hook having an approximate trapezoidal cross section is shown in
fig. It is made of plain carbon steel 45C8 (ultimate tensile stress = 380 MPa)
and the factor of safety is 3.5. Determine the tool carrying capacity of the
hook.

3.

Design and draw a sleeve and cotter joint to resist a tensile load of 60 KN. All
parts of the joint are made of the same material with the following allowable
stresses: Permissible tensile stress = 60 MPa; Permissible crushing stress =
125 MPa; Permissible shear stress = 70 MPa.

2. Two flat plates subjected to a tensile force P are connected together by
means of double strap butt joint as shown in fig. The force P is 250 KN and
the width of the plate is 200 mm. The rivets and plates are made of the same
steel and the permissible stresses in tension, compression and shear are 70,
100 and 60 N per sq. mm respectively. Calculate:
a) Diameter of the rivets
b) Thickness of the plates
c) The dimension of the seam, viz., p, m d) The efficiency of the joint.

3.

Two rods are to be joined in a cotter joint to carry 90 KN of axial force which
may change from tension to compression and vice-versa. The ultimate
strengths in tension, compression and shear respectively are 255 N/mm2,
510 N/mm2 and 130 N/mm2. Choose a factor of safety of 5. Design and
draw the required cotter joint.
