I was just wondering for this question if you can see anything wrong with it. The answer in the textbook is 220MPa but i get 193MPa

The correct answer is 193 MPa as you have written. I have used SkyCiv Beam software to confirm this. It's highly unlikely you are both wrong. The shaft is essentially a beam so it's fine to use beam software for this.

SkyCiv Beam used to determine bending stress of shaft

  • $\begingroup$ Well i use sky civ for sfd and bmds. I never saw shear stress calculations $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You have to add a beam section to get stress and deflection results $\endgroup$
