Design Engineering (Working Stress; Length:Diameter Ratio)

2) Find the diameter and length of a mild steel end journal on which there is a load of 35 KN (shock loading). Assume a safe working stress of 40 MPa and a lengh:diameter ratio of 1.5


Solution Summary

This solution is provided in an attached .doc file. An equation for maximum stress of the steel is used to find diameter and length.
