B. SHAFTS - LECTURE

1. Definition A shaft is a rotating machine element which is used to transmit power from one place to another. The power is delivered to the shaft by some tangential force and the resultant torque (or twisting moment) setup within the shaft permits the power to be transferred to various machines linked up to the shaft.

2. Types of shafts

2.1 Axle – is a stationary member carrying rotating wheels, pulleys, etc.

2.2 Transmission shafts – transmit power between the source and the absorbing power.

2.3 Machine shafts – a shaft which is an integral part of the machine itself. The crank shaft is an example of machine shaft.

2.4 LIneshaft, or mainshaft is one driven by a primemover.

2.5 Countershafts, jackshafts, or headshafts – are shafts intermediate between a line shaft and a driven machine.

2.6 Spindles – are short shafts on machines.

3. Stresses in Shafts

3.1 Shear stresses due to the transmission of torque (i.e. due to torsional load).

3.2 Bending stresses (tensile or compressive) due to the forces acting upon machine elements like gears, pulleys etc. as well as due to the weight of the shaft itself.

3.3 Stresses due to combined torsional and bending loads.

4. Design of shafts

 4.1 Strength 4.1.1 Shafts subjected to twisting moment only. 4.1.2 Shafts subjected to bending moment only. 4.1.3 Shafts subjected to combined twisting and bending moments. 4.1.4 Shafts subjected to axial loads in addition to combined torsional and bending loads. 4.2 Rigidity 4.2.1 Torsional rigidity 4.2.2 Lateral rigidity 5.

12. Shaft Design by Machinery’s Handbook

 12.1 Torsional deflection According to some authorities, the allowable twist in steel transmission shafting should not exceed 0.08 degree per foot length of the shaft. The diameter D(in.) of a shaft that will permit a maximum angular deflection of 0.08 degree per foot of length for a given torque T (in-lb) or for a given horsepower P can be determined from the formulas: D = 0.29 . 6 4 T P 4 N D = 4 Using metric SI units and assuming an allowable twist in steel transmission shafting of 0.26 degree per meter length, D = 2.26 4 T P . 4 N 125 7 D = Another rule that has been generally used in mill practice limits the deflection to 1 degree in a length equal to 20 times the shaft diameter. For a given torque or horsepower, the diameter of a shaft having this maximum deflection is given by: D = 0.1 . 3 T P 3 N 0 D = 4 12.2 For steel line shafting, it is considered good practice to limit the linear deflection to a maximum of 0.010 inch per foot of length. The maximum distance in feet between bearings, for average conditions, in order to avoid excessive linear deflection, is determined by the formulas:
 L 3 2 D 3 2 D = 8.95 = 5.2 for shafting subject to no bending action except its own weight for shafting subject to bending action of pulleys, etc. L

in which D = diameter of shaft in inches and L = maximum distance between bearings in feet. Pulleys should be placed as close to the bearings as possible.

C. KEYS - LECTURE

1. Definitions Key - is a piece of mild steel inserted between the shaft and hub of the pulley to connect these together in order to prevent relative motion between them. It is always inserted parallel to the axis of the shaft. Keyway - is a slot or recess in a shaft and hub of the pulley to accommodate a key.

2. Types of Keys Flat key – is rectangular in section with the smaller dimension placed in a radial direction and they may or may not be tapered.

Square key – is square in section and may or may not be tapered. Round key – is circular in section and fit into holes drilled partly in the shaft and partly in the hub.

Barth key – is a square key with bottom two corners bevelled. Gib-head key - is a square or flat and tapered key with a head at one end known as gib head. It is usually provided to facilitate the removal of key.

Saddle key – is tapered and are either hollow with a radius of curvature slightly smaller than the shaft radius, or flat in which case they are assembled on a flat on the shaft. It is used without keyway on the shaft. Flat saddle key – is a taper key which fits in a keyway in the hub and is flat on the shaft.

1

C. KEYS - LECTURE

Hollow saddle key – is a taper key which fits in a keyway in the hub and the bottom of the key is shaped to fit the curved surface of the shaft.

Woodruff key – is a key which fits into a semi-cylindrical seat on the shaft.

Feather key – is a key that allows the hub to move along the shaft but prevents rotation on the shaft.

Kennedy key – is a tapered square key, with or without gib heads, assembled with the diagonal dimension virtually in a circumferential direction. It is also called tangential key.

C. KEYS - LECTURE

Rollpin – is a key driven or pressed into a hole that is small enough to close the slit, assembled in radial direction.

Splines – is a key made integral with the shaft which fits in the keyways broached in the hub.

D. COUPLINGS - LECTURE

1. Definition

Shaft couplings are used in machinery for several purposes, the most common of which are the following:

a. To provide for the connection of shafts of units that are manufactured separately such as a motor and generator and to provide for disconnection for repairs or alternations.

b. To provide for misalignment of the shafts or to introduce mechanical flexibility.

c. To reduce the transmission of shock loads from one shaft to another.

d. To introduce protection against overloads.

e. To alter the vibration characteristics of rotating units.

Note : A coupling is termed as a device used to make permanent or semi-permanent connection where as a clutch permits rapid connection or disconnection at the will of the operator.

2. Types of Shaft Couplings

2.1 Rigid Couplings

Rigid coupling – is used to connect two shafts which are perfectly aligned.

2.1.1 Flange coupling - usually applies to a coupling having two separate cast iron flanges. Each flange is mounted on the shaft end and keyed to it. The faces are turned up at right angle to the axis of

the shaft. One of the flange has a projected portion and the other flange has a corresponding recess.

2.1.2 Compression coupling utilizes two split cones which are drawn together by the bolts in order to produce a wedging action which tightens the parts of the coupling and the shafts.

2.2 Flexible Couplings

Flexible coupling – is used to connect two shafts having both lateral and angular misalignment.

2.2.1 Oldham coupling Oldham coupling – is used to join two shafts which have lateral mis-alignment.

D. COUPLINGS - LECTURE

2.2.2 Universal (or Hooke’s) Coupling Universal or Hooke’s coupling – is used to connect two shafts whose axes intersect at a small angle. The inclination of the two shafts may be constant, but in actual practice, it varies when the motion is transmitted from one shaft to another.

2.2.3 Other flexible couplings Chain coupling, flexible disk coupling, gear type coupling, etc.

E. FLYWHEELS - LECTURE

1. Definition of Flywheel

A flywheel used in machines serves as a reservoir which stores energy during the period when the

supply of energy is more than the requirement and releases it during the period when the requirement of energy is more than supply.

A flywheel is a rotating member that acts as a storage reservoir for energy when work is not

“consumed” at as fast a rate as the power is supplied.

2. Kinetic Energy, KE

Where:

I = mk 2 = moment of inertia

m = mass of flywheel = W/g

ω 1 = maximum angular velocity, rad/sec = 2pn1/60 ω 2 = minimum angular velocity, rad/sec = 2pn2/60

 v s1 = maximum speed = πDn 1 v s2 = minimum speed = πDn 2

3. Coefficient of fluctuation, C f Maximum fluctuation of speed - the difference between the maximum and minimum speeds during a cycle. Coefficient of fluctuation of speed - the ratio of the maximum fluctuation of speed to the mean speed.

F. SCREW FASTENINGS - LECTURE

1. Screw Fastenings Screw fastening – is composed by a bolt and nut. Screw thread - is formed by cutting a continuous helical groove on a cylindrical surface.

2. Definitions

Major diameter – is the largest diameter of an external or internal screw thread. The screw is specified by this diameter. It is also known as outside or nominal diameter. Minor diameter – is the smallest diameter of an external or internal screw thread. It is known as core or root diameter. Pitch diameter – is the diameter of an imaginary cylinder, on a cylindrical screw thread, the surface of which would pass through the thread at such points as to make equal the width thread and the width of the spaces between the threads. It is also called an effective diameter. It is the mean diameter of major and minor diameters. Pitch – is the distance from a point on one thread to the corresponding point on the next. This is measured in an axial direction between corresponding points in the same axial plane.

Pitch =

Pitch and Lead Axial pitch or pitch – is the distance, measured axially, from a point on on ethread to the corresponding point on an adjacent thread. Lead – is the distance that a thread advances in one turn; it is the distance the nut moves along the axis in one turn. Lead angle – is the angle between a tangent to the pitch helix and a plane normal to the axis of the screw.

H. SPRING - LECTURE

1. Definition

SPRING – is defined as an elastic body, whose function is to distort when loaded and to recover its original shape when the load is removed.

2. Application:

2.1 To cushion, absorb or control energy due to either shock or vibration as in car springs, railway buffers, air-craft landing gears, shock absorbers and vibration dampers.

2.2 To apply forces, as in brakes, clutches and spring-loaded valves.

2.3 To control motion by maintaining contact between two elements as in cams and followers.

2.4 To measure forces, as in spring balances and engine indicators.

2.5 To store energy, as in watches, toys, etc.

3. Types of Springs (According to shapes)

3.1 Helical springs – are made up of a wire coiled in the form of a helix and is primarily intended for compressive or tensile loads. The cross-section of the wire from which the spring is made may be circular, square or rectangular.

Forms of helical springs.

3.1.1 Compression helical spring

3.1.2 Tension helical spring

Closely coiled – when the spring is coiled so close that the plane containing each turn is nearly at right angles to the axis of the helix and the wire is subjected to torsion. Helix angle is usually less than 10 degrees.

Open coiled – is coiled in such a way that there is a gap between the two consecutive turns, as a result of which the helix angle is large.

3.2 Conical and volute springs – are used in special applications where a telescoping spring or a spring with a spring rate that increases with the load is desired. The conical spring is wound with a uniform pitch whereas the volute springs are wound in the form of paraboloid with constant pitch and lead angles.

1

H. SPRING - LECTURE

3.3 Torsional springs – are springs that may be of helical or spiral type.

Helical type – may be used only in applications where the load tends to wing up the spring and are used in various electrical mechanisms. Spiral type – is used where the load tends to increase the number of coils and when made of flat strip are used in watches and clocks.

3.4 Laminated or leaf springs (flat spring or carriage spring) – consist of a number of flat plates (known as leaves) of varying lengths held together by means of clamps and bolts.

2

H. SPRING - LECTURE

3.5 Disc or Belleville springs – consist of a number of conical discs held together against slipping by a central bolt or tube. These springs are used in applications where high spring rates and compact spring units are required.

3.6 Special purpose springs – these springs are air or liquid springs, rubber springs, ring springs etc.

4. Material for Helical Springs

The springs are mostly made from oil-tempered carbon steel wires containing 0.60 to 0.70 per cent carbon and 0.60 to 1.0 per cent manganese. Music wire is used for small springs. Non-ferrous materials like phosphor bronze, beryllium copper, monel metal, brass etc., may be used in special cases to increase fatigue resistance and corrosion resistance.

The helical springs are either cold formed or hot formed depending upon the size of the wire. Wires of small sizes (less than 10 mm diameter) are usually wound cold whereas larger size wires are wound hot. The strength of the wires varies with size, smaller size wires have greater strength and less ductility, due to the greater degree of cold working.

Severe service – means rapid continuous loading where the rate of minimum to maximum load (or stress) is one-half or less, as in automotive valve springs.

Average service – includes the same stress range as in severe service but with only intermittent operation, as in engine governor springs and automobile suspension springs.

Light service – includes springs subjected to loads that are static or very infrequently varied, as in safety valve springs.

5. Terms use in Compression Springs

5.1 Solid length – is the product of total number of coils and the diameter of the wire.

5.2 Free length – is the length of the spring in the free or unloaded condition. It is equal to the solid length plus the

maximum deflection or compression of the spring and the clearance between the adjacent coils (when fully compressed).

3

H. SPRING - LECTURE

5.3 Spring index – is defined as the ratio of the mean diameter of the coil to the diameter of the wire. Spring index, C = D d

Where

D = Mean diameter of the coil, and

d = Diameter of the wire.

5.4 Spring rate (stiffness or spring constant or spring scale) – is defined as the load required per unit deflection of the spring. Spring rate, k = F δ Where F = Load,and

δ = Deflection of the spring.

5.5 Pitch – is defined as the axial distance between adjacent coils in uncompressed state.

6. End Connections for Compression Helical Springs

Inactive coils – part of the coil which is in contact with the seat and does not contribute to spring action. Active turns – turns which impart spring action.

 D = Mean diameter of the spring coil, d = Diameter of the spring wire,

n = Number of active coils,

 G = Modulus of rigidity for the spring material, F = Axial load on the spring, τ = Maximum shear stress induced in the wire, C = Spring index = D d , p = Pitch of the coils, and

δ = Deflection of the spring, as a result of an axial load W .
