Shear Loading - Direct Shear
- Torsional Shear
- Thread Shear
Contact Stresses - Surface Contact - Flat to Flat
- Point Contact - Ball to Flat
- Rolling Contact - Flat to Flat
It does not seem to be prudent to take the allowable stresses as per ASME for non-pressure containing members where only a pure mechanical load can be expected.
The allowable stresses recommended by the other texts seem to be too conservative/unrealistic. Hence a rational approach is desired. Will be thankful if some one could throw more light on this subject in detail.
