FLAT AND SQUARE KEYS DESIGN PROBLEMS
521. A 2in. shaft, of colddrawn AISI 1137, has a pulley keyed to it. (a) Compute the length of square key and the length of flat key such that a key made of colddrawn C1020 has the same yield strength as the shaft does in pure torsion. (b) The same as (a), except that the key material is AISI 2317, OQT 1000 F. (c) Would you discard either of these keys? Explain.
Solution:

538. The rear axle of an automobile has one end splined. For this fitting there are ten splines, and D =
1.31 in., d = 1.122 in., and L = 1 15/16 in. The minimum shaft diameter is 1 3/16 in. (a) Determine the safe torque capacity of the splined connection, sliding under load. (b) Determine the torque that would have the splines on the point of yielding if the shaft is AISI 8640, OQT 1000 F, if one fourth of the splines are in contact. (c) Determine the torsional stress in the shaft corresponding to each of these torques. Solution:
