If I am designing my axle for a worse case scenario, I need to take this possible axial load into account? My initial thought that was when the user is going around a corner, a lot of the users weights and the weight of the wheelchair frame will be transfers down the axle and this would be my...
I'm in the process of calculating my combined stress on an axle I am designing, I have calculated the bending and torsional stress, however I need to calculate the direct stress in the axle. In order to do this I need to know the axial thrust in my axle, I understand what axial force is but I am...
After looking over my calculations, I've realised I had my bending moment slightly too high, therefore my bending stress is wrong. My bending stress is actually 63MPa.
I took the rolling resistance from the below table taken from this link http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/rolling-friction-resistance-d_1303.html
Perhaps a higher one is more suited for rough terrain?
Therefore, 75/3000=0.25
I want my answer to be 1.4 (walking speed), so I need to decrease...
Ah yes, I forgot to convert to MPa.
I am familiar with deflection however not sure how to calculate it under these parameters, could you give me some pointers?
Thanks, I will do. Now that I have this bending stress for a 20mm diameter shaft, how do I decide if this is suitable for my application?
Or do we now look at torsional stress?
What kind of information would be required to take rough terrain in account?
Can you clarify why this would be at 0.25 m/s? I thought I was calculating the output power, and my initial calculation had found the output to be too high at 300N?
1. Only the load shown in the previous diagram and this axle will be manually driven at low speeds.
2. Between 10mm and 23mm.
3. Preferably a stock bar sized would be used for the axle to keep costs down, so the closest one to the needed axle.
4. I am yet to select my bearings but only plan...
I've had a re-read through of the thread and answered most of my questions, thank you.
I initially did the calculations using a gear ratio of 0.2m diameter for the driven and 0.1m diameter for the driver. I worked it out as getting an output of Fv=301.7N with the method you have shown. Looking...
Thanks for your help, I'll look into this ASAP.
Regarding axial thrust, is there a way to determine what this load is for my circumstance? I understand it may not be a formula, just what factors I need to consider.
Thanks a lot for your help, I have a few questions regarding this method.
1. Am I correct in thinking I determine my own gear ratios to begin with and carry out the equations, deciding if my end result is correct and changing the ratio accordingly if required?
2. For calculating hand velocity...
