How to Calculate Shear stress on flat key?
Shear stress on flat key calculator uses shear_stress = (2*Transmitted torque)/(Width of Key*Diameter of shaft*Length of Key) to calculate the Shear Stress, Shear stress on flat key is the force tending to cause deformation of a material by slippage along a plane or planes parallel to the imposed stress. As for the key, it is one of the criteria for testing for failure. Shear Stress is denoted by 𝜏 symbol.
How to calculate Shear stress on flat key using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Shear stress on flat key, enter Transmitted torque (M_{t}), Width of Key (b), Diameter of shaft (d) & Length of Key (l) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Shear stress on flat key calculation can be explained with given input values -> 8000 = (2*2)/(0.05*0.1*0.1).
