Does anyone know the theory behind rotational stability of a (long, thin) axle? I would like to know the maximum allowable rotational speed of a 5 meter long axle. I suppose its something in line with the theory of column stability, but I can't find anything about it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have made a FEM analysis in Solidworks, but I have no idea how its computed and whether its reliable. So I would like a verify it with an analytic calculation to compare.

Can anyone guide me in the right direction I would appreciate it very much.

Thanks

Kaj
