Given: Shaft diameter = 50 mm, bending moment = 300 kN.mm, torque = 200 kN.mm

Formula: 1) Polar sectional modulus (Zp )= (J / R)

2) Maximum shear stress = (√ M2 + T2 ) / (Zp )

Solution:

1) Polar sectional modulus (Zp )= (J / R)

J = (π 504) / (25) = 613592.31 mm3

R = d / 2 = 50 / 2 = 25 mm

(Zp )= 24543.69 mm3

2) Maximum shear stress = (√ M2 + T2 ) / (Zp)

= [√ (300 x 103)2 + (200 x 103)2 ] / ( 24543.69)

= 14.69 N/mm2

Maximum shear stress induced in a solid shaft is 14.69 N/mm2
