a)

Derive expressions for extreme fibre stresses in curved beam subjected to pure

bending.
b)

The horizontal section of crane hook is symmetrical trapezium 90 mm deep,

inner widths being 60mm and outer width being 30 mm. The hook carries a
vertical load of 25 KN. Inner radius of the hook is 100 mm, the load line is
nearer to the radius of the hook by 25 mm than the center of curvature at the
critical section. Calculate the maximum tensile and compressive stresses.

a)

Design a spring for an elevator shaft at the bottom of which 8 identical springs
are

set in parallel to absorb the shock of the elevator in case of failure. The

weight of elevator is 60 KN and the counter weight of elevator is 20 KN. The

elevator has a free fall of 1.5 meters from rest. The spring is made of 25 mm
diameter rod. Determine the maximum stress in each spring, if the spring index
is 6. Each spring has 15 active turns. Take G = 84Gpa.

ii)Axial force required
iii)Actual maximum pressure
b)

A simple band brake of drum diameter 600mm has a band passing over it with 10
an angle of contact of 225 , while one end is connected to the fulcrum, the
other end is connected to the brake lever at a distance of 400mm from the
fulcrum. The brake lever is 1m long. The brake is to absorb a power of 15Kw at
720rpm. Design the brake lever of rectangular cross section, assuming depth to
be thrice the width. Take allowable stress 80Mpa. Take J-1.=0.3

a)

Derive an expression for bca..'Il strength of a spur gear tooth with standard
notations.

b)

A compressor receives power of 30Kw through a pair of spur gears. The speed
of motor is 1450rpm and that of compressor shaft is 350 rpm. The power
transmission is with moderate shocks and operates continuously. Pinion is made
of C 45 Steel (cr0=210Mpa) and gear of C 40 Steel (cr0=160Mpa). Select the
number of teeth in such a way that the drive is compact and velocity ratio should
not deviate. The hardness for pinion and gear are 300BHN and 250BHN
respectively. Check for dynamic and wear loads.

a)

Explain formative number ofteeth of Bevel gear.

b)

Two steel Bevel gears connect shafts at 90, the pinion has a surface hardness of
300BHN and the gear has a surface hardness of200BHN. The tooth profile is to
be of the 14.5 full depth involute and the module is 4mm. The number of teeth
on the pinion is 30 and the gear has 48 teeth. The face width is 40mm.

air conditioner unit to be run at 500 rpm. Take the center distance between shafts
as 500 mm. Neglect the effect of slip and assume light duty & continuous
service of the air conditioner.
