Hi all, I am having problem doing this analysis now and I am new here. :D hi~(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ok, so the problem is:

I have a smaller diameter shaft and a bigger diameter shaft, I drew a hole on the bigger diameter one, and put the smaller one in, and use a set screw to hold them in place, one of the shaft will have a torque of 50 in-lb, and I need to know what size of set screw I can use. Is this a direct shear problem?
