CALCULATION OF RATIONAL ALIGNMENT (OF SHAFTING) BY THE FINITE-ELEMENT METHOD

Finite-element theory is, with the aid of the computer, greatly simplifying the calculation of the reactions, moments, and coefficients of influence of line shafting, which, because of its non-uniform cross-section, is difficult to calculate by methods of classical mechanics. In the finite-element procedure, the shafting is divided into lengths by selecting suitable positions for the nodes. The protruding part of the tail shaft, together with the propeller, is represented by a moment and external force acting on the first node. For each length or element, the external-load matrix is established as a function of the nodal displacements of the element concerned. The Author explains these preliminaries and the calculation procedure in some detail. Order from: BSRA as No. 49,058.
