1 (a) Write in brief use of standards in design on machine element. What are three basic types of standards used in a design office?(6 marks) 1 (b) Determine the diameter below which the angle of twist of a shaft, and not the maximum stress, is the controlling factor in design of a solid shaft in torsion. The allowable shear stress is 55MN/m2 and the maximum allowable twist is 0.3deg/m. (Consider a shaft with no key). G = 80 GN/m2.(4 marks) 10 (a) Explain the following methods.

3 (a) Explain ASME code of shaft design.(2 marks) 3 (b) Determine the diameter of a circular rod made of ductile material with a fatigue strength(complete stress reversal), σe=265 MPa and tensile yield strength of 350 MPa. The member is subjected to a varying axial load from Wmin= -300 kN to Wmax=700kN and has a stress concentration on factor=1.8. Use factor of safety as 2.0.(8 marks) 4 (a) Explain theories of failures used in Shaft Design.(2 marks) 4 (b) A centrifugal blower rotates at 600rpm. A belt drive is used to connect the blower to a 15kW and 1750 RPM electric motor. The belt forces a torque of 250N-m and a force of 2500N on the shaft. Figure 2 shows the location of bearings, the steps in the shaft and the plane in which the resultant belt force and torque act. The ratio of the journal diameter to the overhung shaft diameter is 1.2 and the radius of the fillet is 1/10th of overhung shaft diameter. Find the shaft diameter, journal diameter and radius of fillet to have a factor of safety 3. The blower shaft is to be machined from hot rolled steel having the following values of stresses:
Endurance limit = 180MPa, yield point stress = 300MPa, ultimate tensile stress = 450MPa. Theoretical stress concentration factor at fillet is 1.62, at keyway is 1.6.
