A transmission shaft is fitted with a coupling that is secured by eight 20 mm diameter bolts pitched on a circle with a diameter of 225 mm. The bolt material has an ultimate shear stress of 280 MN/m2 and a factor of safety of 4.0 is to be used. If the power being transmitted is 1.8 MW, determine the working speed of the shaft in revolutions per minute.
