## Cross section area of socket end resisting shear failure Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Cross Sectional Area = (Diameter of Socket Collar-Diameter of Spigot)*Axial Distance From Slot to End of Socket Collar
A = (d4-d2)*c
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Diameter of Socket Collar - Diameter of socket collar is the external diameter of collar of the socket of a cotter joint. (Measured in Millimeter)
Diameter of Spigot - The diameter of Spigot is defined as the diameter of the external surface of the spigot or the inner diameter of the socket. (Measured in Millimeter)
Axial Distance From Slot to End of Socket Collar - Axial Distance From Slot to End of Socket Collar is the distance between the slot for cotter to the end of socket collar measured along the socket axis. (Measured in Millimeter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Diameter of Socket Collar: 100 Millimeter --> 0.1 Meter (Check conversion here)
Diameter of Spigot: 45 Millimeter --> 0.045 Meter (Check conversion here)
Axial Distance From Slot to End of Socket Collar: 12 Millimeter --> 0.012 Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
A = (d4-d2)*c --> (0.1-0.045)*0.012
Evaluating ... ...
A = 0.00066
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.00066 Square Meter -->660 Square Millimeter (Check conversion here)
660 Square Millimeter <-- Cross Sectional Area

Width of cotter by bending consideration
Mean Width of Cotter = (((3*Load/(Thickness of cotter*Bending Stress in Cotter))*((Diameter of Spigot/4)+((Diameter of Socket Collar-Diameter of Spigot)/6))))^0.5 Go
Maximum load taken by cotter joint given spigot diameter, thickness and stress
Load = (((pi/4)*(Diameter of Spigot)^2)-(Diameter of Spigot*Thickness of cotter))*Permissible tensile stress Go
Minimum Rod diameter in cotter joint given axial tensile force and stress
Diameter of rod = sqrt((4*Axial tensile or compressive force)/(Permissible tensile stress*pi)) Go
Minimum Diameter of spigot in cotter joint subjected to crushing stress
Diameter of Spigot = Axial tensile or compressive force/(Crushing stress induced in cotter*Thickness of cotter) Go
Width of cotter by shear consideration
Mean Width of Cotter = Shear Force on Section/(2*Allowable shear stress*Thickness of cotter) Go
Load taken by cotter joint rod given tensile stress in rod
Load = (pi*(Diameter of rod^2)*Tensile Stress In Rod)/4 Go
Tensile stress in rod of cotter joint
Tensile Stress In Rod = (4*Load)/(pi*Diameter of rod^2) Go
Thickness of spigot collar when rod diameter is available
Thickness of Spigot Collar = 0.45*Diameter of rod Go
Diameter of spigot collar given rod diameter
Diameter of Spigot Collar = 1.5*Diameter of rod Go
Diameter of socket collar given rod diameter
Diameter of Socket Collar = 2.4*Diameter of rod Go

### Cross section area of socket end resisting shear failure Formula

Cross Sectional Area = (Diameter of Socket Collar-Diameter of Spigot)*Axial Distance From Slot to End of Socket Collar
A = (d4-d2)*c

## Loads supported by a cotter joint

Cotter joints are used to support axial loads between the two rods, tensile or compressive. Although a cotter joint will resist the rotation of one rod relative to the other, it should not be used to join rotating shafts. This is because the cotter will not be balanced and may work loose under the combination of vibration and centrifugal force.
