312 Deformation of Flexible Shaft Made From Steel Wire Encased in Stationary Tube

Problem 312
A flexible shaft consists of a 0.20-in-diameter steel wire encased in a stationary tube that fits closely enough to impose a frictional torque of 0.50 lb·in/in. Determine the maximum length of the shaft if the shearing stress is not to exceed 20 ksi. What will be the angular deformation of one end relative to the other end? G = 12 × 106 psi.

311 Aluminum Shaft Loaded by Multiple Torques Applied at Gears

Problem 311
An aluminum shaft with a constant diameter of 50 mm is loaded by torques applied to gears attached to it as shown in Fig. P-311. Using G = 28 GPa, determine the relative angle of twist of gear D relative to gear A.

305 Minimum Diameter of Steel Shaft With Allowable Angle of Twist

Problem 305
What is the minimum diameter of a solid steel shaft that will not twist through more than 3° in a 6-m length when subjected to a torque of 12 kN·m? What maximum shearing stress is developed? Use G = 83 GPa.

304 Maximum Shearing Stress and Angle of Twist of a Steel Shaft

Problem 304
A steel shaft 3 ft long that has a diameter of 4 in is subjected to a torque of 15 kip·ft. Determine the maximum shearing stress and the angle of twist. Use G = 12 × 106 psi.

Solution to Problem 208 Axial Deformation

Problem 208
A steel tire, 10 mm thick, 80 mm wide, and 1500.0 mm inside diameter, is heated and shrunk onto a steel wheel 1500.5 mm in diameter. If the coefficient of static friction is 0.30, what torque is required to twist the tire relative to the wheel? Neglect the deformation of the wheel. Use E = 200 GPa.

Solution to Problem 118 Shear Stress

Problem 118
A 200-mm-diameter pulley is prevented from rotating relative to 60-mm-diameter shaft by a 70-mm-long key, as shown in Fig. P-118. If a torque T = 2.2 kN·m is applied to the shaft, determine the width b if the allowable shearing stress in the key is 60 MPa.
