Torque carried by the hollow shaft, Mechanical Engineering

Torque carried by the hollow shaft:

A hollow and a solid shaft of similar material have the same weight when the inner diameter of the hollow shaft is half its outer diameter. What shall be the torque carried by the hollow shaft if the solid shaft may carry a torque T for alike maximum shearing stress in both of the shafts.

Solution

For hollow shaft, di  =  do /2

∴  921_Torque carried by the hollow shaft.png

 

∴ Shearing stress on surface

If on solid shaft torque T induces maximum stress τh on surface, then

τhm = 16T / π d3

Utilizing d from Eq. (ii)

Th  = (0.9375/0.625 )T

 = 1.442 T

Hollow shaft shall carry 44.2% more torque if two shafts weigh equal and are subjected to similar surface stress.
