# Hollow Shaft

## Solution to Problem 321 Torsion

## 313 Maximum Torque That Can be Applied to a Hollow Steel Shaft

**Problem 313**

Determine the maximum torque that can be applied to a hollow circular steel shaft of 100-mm outside diameter and an 80-mm inside diameter without exceeding a shearing stress of 60 MPa or a twist of 0.5 deg/m. Use G = 83 GPa.

## 310 Strength Comparison of Hollow and Solid Steel Shafts of Equal Outside Diameters

**Problem 310**

Show that the hollow circular shaft whose inner diameter is half the outer diameter has a torsional strength equal to 15/16 of that of a solid shaft of the same outside diameter.
