Static failure analysis of a pin

  1. Jun 6, 2013 #1

    So i am confused on how to do the analysis on the pin where the hook attaches to the arm.

    would their be a shear and a torque at that point?

    Based on this photo, it appears that the hook is allowed to rotate, with the pin serving as an axis. IMO, torque = 0.
