Solid Shaft

Solution to Problem 322 Torsion

Problem 322
A solid steel shaft is loaded as shown in Fig. P-322. Using G = 83 GPa, determine the required diameter of the shaft if the shearing stress is limited to 60 MPa and the angle of rotation at the free end is not to exceed 4 deg.

Solution to Problem 321 Torsion

Problem 321
A torque T is applied, as shown in Fig. P-321, to a solid shaft with built-in ends. Prove that the resisting torques at the walls are T1 = Tb/L and T2 = Ta/L. How would these values be changed if the shaft were hollow?
