Problem # 49
Shearing and Bearing Stress
A joint, as show to the left, is subject to a load
Thicknesses : t
=0.7 inch,   t
=0.4 inch.             Load : P = 1400 lbs
Determine the diameter of the rivets such that the shearing stress does not exceed 12000 psi and the bearing stress does not exceed 16000 psi.
