ME 466 - Machine Design NAME ___________________________________ Summer Term, 2001 Final Exam, 200 Points, Open Book 1. (20 Points) The pinion in a gear set is a spur gear with 20 ° full depth teeth and a diametral pitch of 14. It has 28 teeth and rotates at a speed of 8,000 rpm. The mating gear has 42 teeth. They both have a face width of 1.00 inch and are made of alloy steel with a core hardness of 340 Bhn. The tooth profiles are done with a precision that justifies the use of curve C of Fig 15.24 and the assumption that the teeth share the load. The loading involves mild shock, justifying the use of K o = 1.25. Estimate the horsepower that can be transmitted with 99% reliability, based on tooth bending fatigue and a factor of safety of 1.80. HP: _____________ 2. (10 Points) The gears in the previous problem have been case hardened to 500 Bhn giving a high surface hardness. Estimate the horse power that can be transmitted for 2000 hours with 99% reliability and a 1.8 factor of safety, based on surface strength. HP: _____________ 3. (25 Points) A full journal bearing has a diameter of 50 mm, is 50 mm long, and supports a load of 2000 newtons at an operating speed of 800 rpm.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
