Homework Statement
I need to calculate the tangential and radial force acting on a shaft so i can specify the correct bearings to use, however i dont know of any relevant formulae to calculate these, can anyone help?
Power through the shaft is 1000w
RPM is 130
Force acting vertically on...
Right, im in the process of designing an axial piston pump.
I have obtained the following formula from a text book for power output. unfortunately i dont know what units the formula requires, is anyone able to confirm what they are? Also, if anyone knows of a good resource for pump design...
Hi,
Im designing an axial piston pump in solidworks, prior to analysis.
Basically im having difficulty in getting the slipper pads from the top of the pistons to mate to the swashplate, so that when rotated the pump produces a pumping action.
I have the slipper pads connected to the...
Hi,
I need to find the dimensions for O ring grooves for different size o rings, for static, dynamic and face sealing. Does anyone have a web link for these for BS and/or ISO metric dimensions. All the ones i can find are subscription ones.
Many thanks
Ed

I have a vehicle travelling at 180 ms^-1, weighing 2000kg.
I need to calculate the maximum stress that the wheel is likely to sustain if it hits a solid, immovable object at the above speed, so that i can successfully design a wheel which wont go beyond its yield strength...
Homework Statement
Basically ive got a brake system which i have designed, and i need to calculate if the brake fluid will overheat if the vehicle brakes from its top speed to a halt, and if so at what speed (or how long after braking commences) they will overheat
Brake force = 13000N...
I have a system, setup to simulate the braking of a vehicle.
the vehicle decelerates from 400 mph to zero using a parachute, and conventional brakes
the parachute deploys at 400mph
to prevent the brakes from overheating they need to be used at a lower velocity
at present i have a...
Homework Statement
right, im modelling the deceleration of a vehicle in simulink
the vehicle uses wheel brakes, and a parachute to decellerate from Vmax to zero
I have constructed a model which models the constant force of the brakes to decelerate the vehicle to stop
I need to amend...
Homework Statement
Ok, im designing a brake system for a uni project, as part of this i need to specify the size of the disc's, to prevent the brake fluid from boiling during braking.
Does anyone know of an arbitary formula which will help me calculate the rate of heat loss from the...
