Shaft and Bearing Calculation and Optimization

This 2-day training for Shaft and Bearing design focuses on sizing and optimization of shafts and their supports using the calculation modules in KISSsoft and learning about the underlying theory of the calculation procedures. The target audience are engineers working in gear transmission design or manufacturing.

You will need a notebook to actively participate in the training course.

Shaft and Bearing Calculation and Optimization

Type: Basic and Advanced
Language: English
Costs: 900 Euro


March 06 2018 | Week 10
09:00 - 17:00 | Tuesday
March 07 2018 | Week 10
09:00 - 17:00 | Wednesday
Duration: 2 Days
Topic: The focus of the introduction is placed on the handling of the software and its user interface. The objective of the first day is to understand the input fields including the underlying theory, the messages created during the calculation process and how to interpret the results in graphics and reports. The second part goes deeper into the sizing and optimization of shafts and bearings. The extended calculation possibilities in KISSsoft such as coaxial shaft systems, thermally critical speed and even tooth trace modifications based on shaft deflection will be explained. The determination of bearing service life and stiffness will occupy a significant part. Participants will get an insight into different service life calculation methods including inner geometry, taking into account bearing stiffness and tilting under load and even contact stress in ring material.
