I'm in the process of calculating an axle diameter by using the bending moments which are created with the applied force on the end.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In order to design my axle to be efficient, I believe I need to use the following equation.

Sx = M/Fy

Sx being Plastic Modulus

Fy being Tensile strength of my chosen material

M being the worst case bending moment calculated

I have been told that once I've calculated my Sx, I need to look in the "steel tables" to find the correct diameter of steel tube to use for my axle, however I'm struggling to find access to these tables.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
