Attempting to use the formula:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

D = 1.72 (Tmax/σmax)^1/3

In my case I do not knowσmaxor at least how to calculate it from material properties.

Material is 1045

UTS 84800

YTS 74300

Tmax = 591.55 in-lbs

D = 1.72 (Tmax/σmax)^1/3

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards
