Q4. A cantilever spring having 10 mm wire diameter is made of stainless steel 4Cr18Ni10
(S
ut
= 860 N/mm
2
and S
yt
= 690 N/mm
2
). The force P acting at the free end varies from 75 N
to 150 N. The surface finish of the wire is equivalent to the machined surface. There is no
stress concentration and the expected reliability is 50%. Calculate the number of stress
cycles likely to cause fatigue failure. (20)
Q5. a) What is probabilistic approach to design? Explain the procedure to predict reliability of
a bearing. (10)
b) Explain creep behavior. How it affects the design of machine element? What is the
effect of temperature and stress on creep? (10)
Q6. a) Describe the theory of fracture mechanics under static loading. Also explain various
mode of fracture. (10)
b) A steel support strap designed to hold a 60000-N static load in axial tension was
accidently sawcut during production and now has an edge crack in it. Determine the
safety factor of the original, uncracked strap based on yielding and its new ?cracked?
safety factor based on fracture mechanics. How large could the crack get before it fails?
The material is steel with S
y
= 540 MPa and K
c
= 66 MPa-m0.5. The length l = 6 m,
width b = 80 mm, and thickness t = 3 mm. The crack width a = 10 mm. The crack is
completely through the thickness at one edge of the 80-mm width, Assume the ratio a/b
is < 0.13. (10)/
Q7. a) Explain the philosophy of Computer Aided Machine Design. What are the advantages
and disadvantages of using analysis software to design machine elements? (10)
b) Describe the design process of springs and how CAD helps in accelerating this design
process? (10)
Q8. Write short notes on :
(a) Fatigue strength and endurance limit (5)
(b) Stages of fatigue failure (5)
(c) Finite element method (5)
(d) Limit Design (5)
