Hey guys, I have a problem. I need to calculate the stress on on a shaft thats driving a fan. The shaft setup is pretty simple. It's a basic circular shaft, then one side is milled to a flat, slightly resembling the letter D.

So, of course I have the dimensions, and the input torque. How can I calculate a stress out of it? I have tried running a numerical analysis, but ANSYS does not like it for some reason. Anyways, I was asked to do a hand calculation and with a background in CFD, I'm kind of at a loss. Any tips?

Thanks a lot,
