SECTION 3.3 Circular Bars and Tubes 255 Problem 3.3-5 A high-strength steel drill rod used for boring a hole in the earth has a diameter of 0.5 in. (see figure). The allowable shear stress in the steel is 40 ksi and the shear modulus of elasticity is 11,600 ksi. What is the minimum required length of the rod so that one end of the rod can be twisted 30° with respect to the other end without exceeding the allowable stress? d = 0.5 in.

If the allowable stress in shear is 60 MPa, what is the maximum permissible torque T max that may be exerted with the wrench? Through what angle (in degrees) will the shaft twist under the action of the maximum torque? (Assume G 78 GPa and disregard any bending of the shaft.)
