Determine the maximum torque that can be applied on a 2-in. diameter solid aluminum shaft (G = 4000 ksi) if the allowable torsional shear stress is 18 ksi and the relative rotation over 4 ft of the shaft is to be limited to 0.2 rad. 5.42 A hollow steel shaft (G = 80 GPa) with an outside radius of 30 mm is to transmit a torque of 2700 N·m. The allowable torsional

Determine the maximum permissible inner radius to the nearest millimeter. 5.43 5.44 A 5-ft-long hollow shaft is to transmit a torque of 200 in.·kips. The outer diameter of the shaft must be 6 in. to fit existing attachments. The relative rotation of the two ends of the shaft is limited to 0.05 rad. The shaft can be made of steel or aluminum. The shear modulus of elasticity G, the allowable shear stress τallow, and the specific weight γ are given in Table P5.44. Determine the maximum inner

Power P is the rate at which work dW ⁄ dt is done; and work W done by a constant torque is equal to the product of torque T and angle of rotation φ. Noting that ω = d φ ⁄ dt , we obtain
P = Tω = 2πf T (5.16) where T is the torque transmitted, ω is the rotational speed in radians per second, and f is the frequency of rotation in hertz (Hz). Power is reported
in units of horsepower in U.S. customary units or in watts. 1 horsepower (hp) is equal to 550 ft·lb/s = 6600 in·lb/s and 1 watt (W) is equal to 1
