Assume starting torque is 30 percent higher than the nominal torque. Design the coupling assuming the bolts are fitted in reamed holes(12 marks) 6 (b) Design the assembly of a knuckle joint to connect two mild steel rods subjected to an axial pull of 100 kN.The allowable stress for rods and pin are 100 MPa, 130 Mpa and 60 MPa in Tension, crushing and shear respectively.
