Shaft Design & Analysis


Recommended Posts

While this looks like a fairly simply problem on the surface, it has the potential to be quite complex. The fact that the shaft is vertical complicates the situation because it does not offer the stabilizing force of gravity. What you are asking for is professional work, well beyond the scope of the Q&A here at the ME Forum. You should contact a competent Professional Engineer for this assistance. You can send me a PM if you want further help.

I'd agree with DrD....that said, ball-bearings are inappropriate in this application....I'd use taper roller as it has both an axial and radial component of force, otherwise - due to the mass of air, mass of the assembly and the resultant action - you will have premature bearing failure!
