309 Finding the Diameter of a Propeller Shaft Transmitting a Power

Problem 309
A steel propeller shaft is to transmit 4.5 MW at 3 Hz without exceeding a shearing stress of 50 MPa or twisting through more than 1° in a length of 26 diameters. Compute the proper diameter if G = 83 GPa.

306 Maximum Shearing Stress of Marine Propeller Shaft

Problem 306
A steel marine propeller shaft 14 in. in diameter and 18 ft long is used to transmit 5000 hp at 189 rpm. If G = 12 × 106 psi, determine the maximum shearing stress.
