Unformatted text preview: underwater experiment is anchored in shallow water by a chain [see part (a) of the figure]. Because the buoy is posi-tioned just below the surface of the water, it is not expected to collapse from the water pressure. The chain is attached to the buoy by a shackle and pin [see part (b) of the figure]. The diameter of the pin is 0.5 in. and the thickness of the shackle is 0.25 in. The buoy has a diameter of 60 in. and weighs 1800 lb on land (not including the weight of the chain). (a) Determine the average shear stress t aver in the pin. (b) Determine the average bearing stress s b between the pin and the shackle. (a) (b) d Pin Shackle A-PDF Split DEMO : Purchase from www.A-PDF.com to remove the watermark...
