Question 1 Explanation:
Given,
$\sigma _x=3P$
$\sigma _y=-2P$

\begin{aligned} &\text { Hence, }\left(\frac{1+\mu}{6 E}\right)\left[\left(\sigma_{1}-\sigma_{2}\right)^{2}+\left(\sigma_{2}-\sigma_{3}\right)^{2}+\left(\sigma_{1}-\sigma_{3}\right)^{2}\right]>\left(\frac{1+\mu}{3 E}\right)\left(S_{y t}\right)^{2}\\ &\left(\sigma_{1}-\sigma_{2}\right)^{2}+\left(\sigma_{2}-\sigma_{3}\right)^{2}+\left(\sigma_{1}-\sigma_{3}\right)^{2}>2\left(S_{y t}\right)^{2}\\ &\sqrt{\sigma_{1}^{2}+\sigma_{2}^{2}+\sigma_{3}^{2}+\sigma_{1} \sigma_{2}-\sigma_{2} \sigma_{3}-\sigma_{1} \sigma_{3}}>\left(S_{y t}\right) \text { (Von Mises effective stress) } \end{aligned}
$S_{y t} =$ Von Mises effective stress is defined as the uni-axial yield stress that would create same distortion energy created by the tri-axial state of stress.

 Question 5
A bar is subjected to a combination of a steady load of 60 kN and a load fluctuating between -10 kN and 90 kN. The corrected endurance limit of the bar is 150 MPa, the yield strength of the material is 480 MPa and the ultimate strength of the material is 600 MPa. The bar cross-section is square with side a. If the factor of safety is 2, the value of a (in mm), according to the modified Goodman's criterion, is ________ (correct to two decimal places).

GATE ME 2018 SET-2   Machine Design
Question 5 Explanation: $\begin{array}{l} P_{m}=\frac{P_{\max }+P_{\min }}{2} \\ P_{a}=\frac{P_{\max }-P_{\min }}{2} \\ P_{m}=100 \mathrm{kN} \\ \mathrm{Pa}=50 \mathrm{kN} \\ \sigma_{\mathrm{m}}=\frac{100 \times 10^{3}}{a^{2}} \mathrm{MPa} \\ \sigma_{a}=\frac{50 \times 10^{3}}{a^{2}} \mathrm{MPa} \end{array}$
Solution by Goodman Equation,
\begin{aligned} \frac{\sigma_{m}}{S_{u t}}+\frac{\sigma_{a}}{\sigma_{e}} &=\frac{1}{N} \\ 100\left[\frac{100}{a^{2} \times 600}+\frac{50}{150 a^{2}}\right] &=\frac{1}{2} \\ a^{2} &=1000 \\ a &=31.62 \mathrm{mm} \end{aligned}
Solution by Langar equation,
\begin{aligned} \frac{\sigma_{m}}{S_{y t}}+\frac{\sigma_{a}}{S_{y t}}&=\frac{1}{N}\\ 100\left[\frac{100}{480 a^{2}}+\frac{50}{480 a^{2}}\right] &=\frac{1}{2} \\ a^{2} &=625 \\ a &=25 \mathrm{mm} \end{aligned}
Hence final answer by modified Goodman's Griterion is 31.62 mm.
