# MACHINE DESIGN EXCEL SPREAD SHEETS

Copy write, Machine Design Spreadsheet Calculations by John R Andrew, 6 July 2006 * Machine components are designed to withstand: applied direct forces, moments and torsion. * These loads may be applied gradually, suddenly, and repeatedly. * The design load is equal to the applied load multiplied by a combined shock and fatigue factor, Ks. * The average applied design stress must be multiplied by a stress concentration factor K. * Calculated deflections are compared with required stiffness. * The material strength is compared with the maximum stress due to combinations of anticipated loads.

Two machine components, shown above, are subjected to loads P at each end. The force P is resisted by internal stress S which is not uniform. At the hole diameter D and the fillet radius R stress is 3 times the average value. This is true for tension +P and compression -P.

Shear Stress Distribution A stress element at the center of the beam reacts to the vertical load P with a vertical up shear stress vector at the right end and down at the other. This is balanced by horizontal right acting top and left acting bottom shear stress vectors. A stress element at the top or bottom surface of the beam cannot have a vertical stress vector. The shear stress distribution is parabolic. Reference: Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual (for the PE exam), by M.R. Lindeburg, Published by, Professional Publications, Inc. Belmont, CA.

COMPOUND STRESS
Stress Element The stress element right is at the point of interest in the machine part subjected to operating: forces, moments, and torques. Direct Stresses: Horizontal, +Fx = tension, -Fx = compression. Vertical, +Fy = tension, -Fy = compression. Shear stress: Shear stress, Sxy = normal to x and y planes.

Principal Stress Plane: The vector sum of the direct and shear stresses, called the principal stress F1, acts on the principal plane angle A degrees, see right. There is zero shear force on a principal plane. Angle A may be calculated from the equation: Tan 2A = 2 x Sxy / ( Fy - Fx)

Principal Stresses: Two principal stresses, F1 and F2 are required to balance the horizontal and vertical applied stresses, Fx, Fy, and Sxy. The maximum shear stress acts at 45 degrees to the principal stresses, shown right. The maximum shear stress is given by: Smax = ( F2 - F1 ) / 2 The principal stress equations are given below.

PRINCIPAL STRESSES
Principal stress, F1 = (Fx+Fy)/2 + [ ((Fx-Fy)/2)^2 + Sxy^2 )^0.5 ] Principal stress, F2 = (Fx+Fy)/2 - [ ((Fx-Fy)/2)^2 + Sxy^2 )^0.5 ] Max shear stress, Sxy = [Fn(max) - Fn(min)] / 2 Principal plane angle, A = ( ATAN(2*Sxy / (Fy - Fx) ) / 2
