    Construction Making a gong stand - will aluminium tubing be strong enough?

    Hello everybody, I am planning to make a gong stand using tube clamps and aluminium tubing, but I am unsure whether the tubing will be strong enough. I like the idea of using aluminium, to aid with portability of the stand. As the stand will be used to play the gong itself, which will move back...

    Strength of materials -- Normal stresses and Shear stresses

    1. Homework Statement hey i need to calculate max normal stress at BC and max shear stress at b and c is my torque equation right? 2. Homework Equations 3. The Attempt at a Solution so i thought Σma=0 Cx*6+80*6+80*2=0 i ll find cx and then ΣFx=0 and ΣFy=0

    Dynamic Shear Force on a Brake Pad

    I'm looking for a way to calculate the shear force applied to a brake pad from stopping ( a small engine brake pad stopping a fly wheel). I know shear stress is shear stress/ area , would this apply for a dynamic application as well? Would I need to calculate the force to stop the flywheel at a...

    Strength of materials vs Theory of Elasticity

    In mechanical engineering we have various courses in strenght of materials, and I've noticed that graduate students learn the Theory of Elasticity. I've researched a little bit about it, and I know that the Theory of Elasticity is more general than strenght of materials. But I have some doubts...

    Shaft in torsion?

    I have some conceptual doubts about shafts subjected to torsion. When studying Strenght of Materials, to find stress and strain in power transmission shafts, we consider that one of the ends of the shaft is fixed, with all degrees of freedom restricted, and the other one is receiving torque. I'm...
