Shaft in series, Mechanical Engineering


In order to form composite shaft sometimes 2 shafts are connected in series. In this type of cases each shaft transmits same torque. The angle of twist is sum of angle of twist of 2 shaft connected in series.


Total angle of twist (θ ) =   θ1  +  θ2  = TL1/C1IP1  +  TL2/C2IP2

Where, T = torque transmitted by each shaft

L1,L2 = Respective lengths of 2 shafts.

G1, G2  = Respective moduli of rigidity

IP1, IP2  = Respective polar moment of inertia

When the shaft are made of same material: than G1  = G2  = than,

θ =  θ1 + θ2  = T/C[L1/IP1 + L2/IP2]
