1. (a) Discuss the factors to be considered in the selection of engineering

(b) The crank pin of an engine sustains a maximum load of 35kN due to
steam pressure. If the allowable bearing pressure is 7MPa, and the
dimensions of the pin. Assume length of pin is 1.2 times diameter of pin.
2. (a) List out and discuss the general considerations in the design of
machine members.
(b) A square tie bar of 20mm side section is attached to a bracket by 6
pins and carries a load. Calculate the diameter of pin, is the maximum
stress in tie bar is 150MPa and in pins 75MPa.
3. (a) Enlist the manufacturing considerations in design of machine
(b) The diameter of a piston of steam engine is 300mm and the maximum
permissible steam pressure is 0.7MPa. If the maximum permissible
compressive stress for the piston rod material is 40MPa, and the size of
the piston rod.
4. (a) What are the factors to be considered in determination of factor of
