## Shear stress in cotter given cotter thickness and width Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Shear Stress in Cotter = (Load)/(2*(Thickness of cotter)*Mean Width of Cotter)
τ = (L)/(2*(tc)*b)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Load - Load is basically the amount of load/force any material, product, joint, can bear or is acted upon or exerts. (Measured in Newton)
Thickness of cotter - Thickness of cotter is the measure of how much broad is the cotter in direction perpendicular to axial force. (Measured in Millimeter)
Mean Width of Cotter - The mean Width of Cotter is defined as the average width of the cotter of a cotter joint. (Measured in Millimeter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Load: 5250 Newton --> 5250 Newton No Conversion Required
Thickness of cotter: 10 Millimeter --> 0.01 Meter (Check conversion here)
Mean Width of Cotter: 30 Millimeter --> 0.03 Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
τ = (L)/(2*(tc)*b) --> (5250)/(2*(0.01)*0.03)
Evaluating ... ...
τ = 8750000
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
8750000 Pascal -->8.75 Newton per Square Millimeter (Check conversion here)
8.75 Newton per Square Millimeter <-- Shear Stress in Cotter
(Calculation completed in 00.016 seconds)

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

### Shear stress in cotter given cotter thickness and width Formula

Shear Stress in Cotter = (Load)/(2*(Thickness of cotter)*Mean Width of Cotter)
τ = (L)/(2*(tc)*b)

## What is a spigot?

Spigot is the male part of the cotter joint, it has a rectangular slot for passing the cotter through it. The spigot has a collar that rests against the socket end.
