Question details

QUESTION2 a) A steel plate subjected to a force of 5 kN and fixed to a channel by means of three identical bolts is shown in Figure below. The bolts are made from plain carbon steel 5C8 (Syt 380 N/mm2) and the factor of safety is 3. Specify the sizes of the bolts 5 KN 1 2 3 901 7515 30200 b) Next, there is a design changes proposed by the other engineer to re-arrange the bolts in the vertical line as shown in the Figure below. Based on this new proposal, specify the new sizes of the bolts 5 kN 75 2 75 3 105 200 c) Justify whether the new solution is feasible or not in terms of the bolts size and plate strength.
