## Shear stress in spigot of cotter joint given diameter of spigot and load Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Shear Stress in Spigot = (Load)/(2*(Gap between End of Slot to End of Spigot)*Diameter of Spigot)
τ = (L)/(2*(a)*d2)
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)
Gap between End of Slot to End of Spigot - Gap between End of Slot to End of Spigot is the distance between the end of slot for cotter to the end of spigot opposite from its collar. (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)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Load: 5250 Newton --> 5250 Newton No Conversion Required
Gap between End of Slot to End of Spigot: 8 Millimeter --> 0.008 Meter (Check conversion here)
Diameter of Spigot: 45 Millimeter --> 0.045 Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
τ = (L)/(2*(a)*d2) --> (5250)/(2*(0.008)*0.045)
Evaluating ... ...
τ = 7291666.66666667
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
7291666.66666667 Pascal -->7.29166666666667 Newton per Square Millimeter (Check conversion here)
7.29166666666667 Newton per Square Millimeter <-- Shear Stress in Spigot

## < 10+ Design of Cotter Joint Calculators

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
