Solution to Problem 117 Shear Stress

Problem 117
Find the smallest diameter bolt that can be used in the clevis shown in Fig. 1-11b if P = 400 kN. The shearing strength of the bolt is 300 MPa.



Solution 117



How did it became 400*1000?

the 400KN force was converted to Newton (N), ie (400 * 1000)N = 400,000N

why use 2 @ area calculation

The bolt is subjected to double shear.
