I've got a 35mm diameter pin holding a roller between two plates. I want to figure out the max force the pin can withstand in shear. I've been working on a formula but I'm getting answers of the order of 130,000+ N. The pin will be made from mild steel. Does anyone know the formula and information I should be using? Thanks for helping me out with this.
