Problem 115 page 16

Given:
Required diameter of hole = 20 mm
Thickness of plate = 25 mm
Shear strength of plate = 350 MN/m2
Required: Force required to punch a 20-mm-
diameter hole
Required:
Solution 115
a. Maximum thickness of plate to punch a
2.5 inches diameter hole
b. Diameter of smallest hole if the plate is
0.25 inch thick

Solution 116

## a. Maximum thickness of plate:

Based on puncher strength:

Equivalent
shear force of the plate

The resisting area is the shaded area along the Based on shear strength of plate:
perimeter and the shear force is equal to the
punching force .

## b. Diameter of smallest hole:
