## Tensile stress in socket of cotter joint given outer and inner diameter of socket Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Tensile Stress In Socket = Load/((pi/4)*(Outside Diameter of Socket^2-Diameter of Spigot^2)-Thickness of cotter*(Outside Diameter of Socket-Diameter of Spigot))
σt = L/((pi/4)*(d1^2-d2^2)-tc*(d1-d2))
This formula uses 1 Constants, 4 Variables
Constants Used
pi - Archimedes' constant Value Taken As 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288
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)
Outside Diameter of Socket - Outside Diameter of Socket is the diameter (twice the radius) of the outer surface of the socket. (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)
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)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Load: 5250 Newton --> 5250 Newton No Conversion Required
Outside Diameter of Socket: 60 Millimeter --> 0.06 Meter (Check conversion here)
Diameter of Spigot: 45 Millimeter --> 0.045 Meter (Check conversion here)
Thickness of cotter: 10 Millimeter --> 0.01 Meter (Check conversion here)

## What is a cotter and when is it used?

Cotter is a flat wedge-shaped metal piece that is used to connect two rods that transmit the force but without rotation. The force may be axial and of tensile or compressive nature. Cotter is fitted in the tapered slot and remains in its position because of wedge action.
