11. A helical compression
spring absorbs 500 N-m energy. The initial compression
the spring is 45 mm and compressed
by additional 60 mm while absorbing the
shock. The spring index is 6, and the maximum permissible
stress is 400 mpa.
Take G = 0.8 X 105 mpa. Design the spring. Neglect the effect of stress concentration.
12. It is required to transmit 10 kw power from an electric motor running at 1440 rpm
to a low speed shaft, with a velocity ratio 3. The teeth are 14V2° involute, with 25
teeth on the pinion. The starting torque may be considered to be equal to 30%
higher than the running
Both pinion and gear are made of steel
(ad = 210mpa). The shaft on which the gear is mounted is made of mild steel, with
45 mpa as permissible shear stress. Design suitable spur gear drive.
