**Given:**

For M.S link, P = 80 kN = $80 \times 10^{3}$ , b = 3t , $\sigma = 70 N/mm^{2}$

**Solution:**

$\sigma = \frac{P}{A}$ $\therefore A = \frac{P}{\sigma} = \frac{80 \times 10^{3}}{70}$

$\therefore A = 1142.86 mm^{2}$

$\therefore A = 1142.86$

$\therefore 3t \times t = 1142.86$

$\therefore t = 19.52 mm$

& b = 3t = $3 \times 19.52 = 58.56 mm$
