KNOWN: A shaft between self-aligning bearing A and B is loaded through belt forces applied to a central sheave.
FIND: a) Determine and make a sketch showing the stresses acting on the top and side elements, T and S.
b) Represent the states of stress at T and S with three-dimensional Mohr circles.
c) At location S, show the orientation and stresses acting on a principle element,
and on maximum shear element.
ASSUMPTIONS: 1. The weights of the shaft and sheave are negligible.
2. The shaft is straight.
3. The effect of stress concentrations is negligible.
4. The shaft material is homogeneous and perfectly elastic.
