Draw S-N curve. Explain the concept of endurance limit and its need in design of machine elements



Endurance Limit: It is defined as maximum value of the completely reversed bending stress which a polished standard specimen can withstand without failure, for infinite number of cycles (usually 107 cycles).It is known as endurance or fatigue limit (ϭe). Need of Endurance Limit in Machine Design: Endurance limit is used to describe a property of materials: the amplitude (or range) of cyclic stress that can be applied to the material without causing fatigue failure.

State four disadvantages of screwed joints.

Four Disadvantages of screwed joints: 1) Screwed joints are weaker than welded joint 2) Screwed joints weakens( due to holes) the parts that are to be joined. 3) Stress concentration in the threaded portion of screw makes them weak. 4) Locking arrangement is required in case of vibrations
