We wish to alter the figure for Prob. 8–22 by decreasing the inside diameter of the seal to the diameter A = 100 mm. This makes an effective sealing diameter of 120 mm. Then, by using cap screws instead of bolts, the bolt circle diameter B can be reduced as well as the outside diameter C. If the same bolt spacing and the same edge distance are used, then eight 12-mm cap screws can be used on a bolt circle with B = 160 mm and an outside diameter of 260 mm, a substantial savings. With these dimensions and all other data the same as in Prob. 8–22, find the load factor.
