## Thickness of cotter given compressive stress in spigot Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Thickness of cotter = (Load)/(Compressive Stress In Spigot*Diameter of Spigot)
tc = (L)/(σc*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)
Compressive Stress In Spigot - Compressive Stress In Spigot is the amount of stress generated into the spigot due to the compressive force on it. (Measured in Newton per Square 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
Compressive Stress In Spigot: 40 Newton per Square Millimeter --> 40000000 Pascal (Check conversion here)
Diameter of Spigot: 45 Millimeter --> 0.045 Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
tc = (L)/(σc*d2) --> (5250)/(40000000*0.045)
Evaluating ... ...
tc = 0.00291666666666667
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.00291666666666667 Meter -->2.91666666666667 Millimeter (Check conversion here)
2.91666666666667 Millimeter <-- Thickness of cotter

### Thickness of cotter given compressive stress in spigot Formula

Thickness of cotter = (Load)/(Compressive Stress In Spigot*Diameter of Spigot)
tc = (L)/(σc*d2)

## Why is the cotter given a taper?

Generally, the value of taper on cotter is 1 in 48 to 1 in 24 and it provides mainly two benefits: First, this tapper is easy to remove and makes disassembling of joint a simple process. Second, the tapper also ensures the tightness of the joints and prevents the parts from loosening.
