Question #208642

A thin rim is made by joining two halves with rivets as shown in figure 3.8. Determine the required diameter of the twelve rivets if the rim must rotate at 600 r/min and the allowable shear stress in the rivets is 63 MPa. Ignore the effect of the cover plates. The density of the material used 7800 kg/m3

Expert's answer

Rim rotation

Allowable shear stress

Density of Materials

velocity

Hoop Stress

Now Force due to above stress

According to shear stress theory,
