Hi there,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need to calculate bending torques on a rotating flywheel. Not sure how to do this. Anyone who can help?

I have a disc with radius r and mass m rotating with omega_z. This means that the moment of inertia is m*r^2/4 for x and y axis and m*r^2/2 for z axis. (Z-axis is the "natural" center axis of the disc).

If I rotate the spinning disc around the x-axis (or y-axis) I will feel a torque in the y-axis (or x-axis) due to gyroscopic effects. But how does it relate?
