The program carries out detailed analysis of marine propeller shafts. The basic data required are the shaft dimensions, up to 100 lengths of different circular cross-section-hollow or solid-being allowed, the bearing positions, 20 being considered, and any point loads to which the shaft is subjected. The propeller weight and gear wheel weight are examples of such loads. The specific weight and modulus of elasticity of the shaft material are also required. For the convenience of the engineer the program is written in a dimensionless form and will accept any convenient set of units, imperial or metric.
