Problem 1.6-13 A specially designed wrench is used to twist a circular shaft by means of a square key that fits into slots (or keyways ) in the shaft and wrench, as shown in the figure. The shaft has diameter d , the key has a square cross section of dimensions b 3 b , and the length of the key is c . The key fits half into the wrench and half into the shaft (i.e., the keyways have a depth equal to b /2). Derive a formula for the average shear stress t aver in the key when a load P is applied at distance L from the center of the shaft. Hints: Disregard the effects of friction, assume that the bearing pressure between the key and the wrench is uniformly distributed, and be sure to draw free-body diagrams of the
