If I know the torque and rpm that the shaft need to operate at, can I calculate the diameter of the shaft?
A motor operating at 60 rpm applying 1,000 Nm of force on a shaft that has a modulus of rigidity of 50 GPa and is 10 cm in length.
Can I calculate the diameter of the shaft so that it would not fail?
The tensile strength is:
Tensile Strength, Ultimate 686 MPa Tensile Strength, Yield 490 MPa
This will be a horizontal shaft, the length isn't final yet but I am estimating that it will be 2,000 mm long and supported at 200 mm from each end.
There shouldn't be any unforseen shocks being applied to the shaft. It will be transmitting the power from a 15 HP motor that's connected via a coupling on one end.
