Max torque on serrated plate

  1. Nov 25, 2015 #1
    If I had 2 serrated plates like the ones in the attached picture locked in place like seen below. How would I go about calculating the maximum amount of torque needed for failure of the part. Assuming it has 48 teeth and is made from stainless steel?

    Can you determine the force needed to shear a tooth?
