I Mc = =8510 MPa This means the shaft will permanently bend due to the moment applied on it The way to avoid this catastrophic failure is to ensure the chassis protects these open gears by extending past its edges or enclosing it completely. While this may not completely ensure the modules safety, it will fix nearly every probable scenario. Shaft Stress Calculations Shaft 1 (Diameter=3/8) Material: 1045 Steel, Yield Strength (S y )= 530 MPa, Ultimate Strength= 625MPa Max Stress o The shaft is keyed for a 3/32 key, thus a close approximation for the actual yield strength is the materials yield strength (Keyed Yield Strength=398 MPa) o Loading is comprised of three components Moment-Based on cantilevered distance from bearing and radial load exerted on shaft from the miter gear (2.1 N-m) Force- Based on axial load exerted on shaft from miter gear (156.12 N) Torque- Exerted by the stall torque of the motor, through a gear ratio of 2:1 (9.64 N-m) o Stress Calculation- 2 / 1 2 2 max ] 48 ) 8 [( 4 T Fd M d + + = =102 MPa 2 / 1 2 2 3 max ] 64 ) 8 [( 2 T Fd M d + + = = 58.4 MPa o Factors of Safety- max y S n = = 3.9 max 2 y S n = = 3.4 Fatigue Life o Infinite Life- 2000RPM (Average operating speed)=33.3 cycles/second 5 year life @ 1 hour operating time (2 hr per week)-approximately 1,908,000 seconds of use 33.3*1,908,000= 6.4E7 cycles to failure for infinite life o The endurance strength can be calculated using the stress concentration factors from the keyway (197 MPa) o F =S ut +345MPa= 970 MPa o ) 2 log( ) / ' log( e e F N S b - = =-0.109915548 o b ut F S f ) 10 2 ( ' 3 = =.673 o e ut S S f a 2 ) ( = =900 MPa o Loads are based on typical operating conditions, not max conditions Moment-Based on cantilevered distance from bearing and radial load exerted on shaft from the miter gear (2.1 N-m) Force- Based on axial load exerted on shaft from miter gear (156.12 N) Torque- Exerted by the operating torque of the motor, through a gear ratio of 2:1 (2.82 N-m) o 2 / 1 2 2 3 ] 48 ) 8 [( 4 T Fd M d a + + = = 39.4 MPa o b a a N 1 = = 2.25E12 cycles to failure= 2....
