Using the stress-strain diagram given in Fig. P4.1, determine: (a) the factor of safety with respect to the yield strength defined by the 0.20% offset method. (b) the factor of safety with respect to the ultimate strength. Fig. P4.1 Solution (a) From the stress-strain curve, the yield strength defined by the 0.20% offset method is 550 MPa Y = The normal stress in the bar is (145 kN)(1,000 N/kN) 362.5 MPa (25 mm)(16 mm) F A = = = Therefore, the factor of safety with respect to yield is actual 550 MPa FS 1.517 362.5 MPa Y = = = Ans. (b) From the stress-strain curve, the ultimate strength is ult 1,100 MPa = Therefore, the factor of safety with respect to the ultimate strength is ult actual 1,100 MPa FS 3.03 362.5 MPa = = = Ans.

The ultimate shear strength of the bolts is 300 MPa, and a factor of safety of 4.0 is required with respect to fracture. Determine the minimum allowable bolt diameter D required to support an applied load of P = 350 kN. Fig. P4.2 Solution The allowable shear stress for the bolts is ult allow 300 MPa 75 MPa FS 4 = = = To support a load of P = 350 kN, the total area subjected to shear stress must equal or exceed: 2 2 allow 350,000 N 4,666.67 mm 75 N/mm V P A = = There are six bolts, and each bolt acts in double shear; therefore, the total area subjected to shear stress is 2 bolt (6 bolts)(2 surfaces per bolt) 4 V A D = The minimum bolt diameter can be found be equating the two expressions for A V : 2 2 bolt bolt (12 surfaces) 4,666.67 mm 4 22.252 mm 22.3 mm D D = Ans.
