 Calculating torque for a pusher arm
Hello All,
I am designing a pusher arm for a project (Please refer attached picture), I need to calculate required torque to select a rotary cylinder.
The arm is mounted on a rotary cylinder and it has a dead plate underneath.
I understand we can calculate torque= Mass moment of Inertia x Angular acceleration, But How should we take the dead plate friction into account.?
Should i take any other parameter to calculate required torque other than this?
Thanks in Advance.
