Hello Gurus,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am new to mechanical design calculations.

Since I have came across one interesting fact there are two methods using for finding the shear capacity of the components. Yield Strength and Ultimate strength.

Shear yeild strength=1/√3* Yield strength

Ultimate shear strength= .75 of of Ultimate strength

Up on these shear capcacity calculations are made.

What is the signficance of the using two methods for the design calculations? Either one is enough?
