I am a little rusty at the moment but let's say I have an axle with two loads being applied to it. Both 500 lb. I am trying to figure out the various stresses on it so i can determine a suitable diameter for the axle connecting the tires. The two tires and axle are all one piece. The bearing locations are indicated by teh boxes and 500 lb forces.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I made a FBD and calculated reaction forces, moment, shear, and bending. However, I am stuck with the torsion or torque. I don't know which one it is. I believe it is torque since the whole axle is one piece. How do i determine the torque given

diameter of wheel = 20in

axle is driven at a constant speed of 3 ft/s

friction coeff = 0.3

I will be using von-mises afterwards to determine the proper diameter of the axle.

Please see attached picture.

Thank you.

Can't seem to get picture to work, but here is an imjur link. http://imgur.com/a/HHmgn
