Problem 6/50

The double-block brake shown is applied to the fl ywheel by means of the action of the spring. To release the brake, a force P is applied to the control rod. In the operating position with P 5 0, the spring is compressed 30 mm. Select a spring with an appropriate constant (stiffness) k which will provide suffi cient force to brake the fl ywheel under the torque M 5 100 N?m if the applicable coeffi cient of friction for both brake shoes is 0.20. Neglect the dimensions of the shoes.
