EAS 209-Fall 2010 Instructors: Christine Human 9/17/2010 1 Lecture 11 Lecture 11 Design of Transmission Shafts Stress Concentrations An important use of circular shafts is to transmit power from one device or machine to another. Drive shaft of an automobile Propeller shaft of a ship Today’s Objectives: Design of transmission shafts Stress concentrations in circular shafts We will end by discussing additional statically indeterminate problem(s) Today’s Homework EAS 209-Fall 2010 Instructors: Christine Human 9/17/2010 2 Lecture 11 Design of Transmission Shafts The principal transmission shaft performance specifications are: power and speed As a designer you must select the shaft material and cross-section to meet performance specifications without exceeding the allowable shearing stress. STEP 1 : Determine torque applied to shaft at specified power and speed. From dynamics where P – power T – torque ω – angular velocity (radians/sec) Since f π ω 2 = where f is frequency of rotation in revs/sec or Hz fT P π 2 = ω T P =

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
