Maximum load P
Please see the attached file.
Three plates are joined with a 12 mm diameter pin as shown. Determine the maximum load P that can be transmitted by the joint if:
a) The maximum normal stress on a cross-section of the plates at the pin must not exceed 400 MPa.
b) The maximum bearing stress between a plate and the pin must not exceed 600 MPa.
c) The maximum shear stress on a cross-section of the pin must not exceed 250 MPa.
d) The punching shear resistance of the material in the top and bottom plates is 350 MPa.
