Given a 1.5” output shaft, a 80-90 ksi yield strength.
Neglecting limitations of keys or gear reducer what is the maximum HP that could be transmitted by the 1.5” shaft
Torque = (63025*H)/n H is HorsePower and n is RPM
Force = Torque/radius
The Attempt at a Solution
If I can find the maximum force then the maximum torque/HP can be calculated using the above equations. I m not sure how to calc the max shear force using the given data.
