FAILURE MODES OF ROTATING SHAFTS
It is the intent of this paper to present the principal modes of failure of rotating axisymmetric shafts made of ductile material. Shear failure as a result of overtorque is generally the first consideration. This is covered by elementary texts on stress analysis. However, should the strength of a design be adequate to carry the shear stress from torque, failure may still occur by either fatigue or buckling. In addition to fatigue and buckling, one must consider impact as a cause of possible overstress. Thus this paper shall consider fatigue, buckling and impact as modes of failure for rotating shafts.
