Shaft and Bearing Calculation and Optimization

This 2 days training for Shaft and Bearing design focuses on sizing and target-oriented 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 is engineers working in gear transmission design or manufacturing.

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

Topic: The focus of the introduction is placed on the handling of the software and its user interface. To understand the input fields including the underlying theory, to understand the messages created during the calculation process and interpret the results in graphics and reports is the aim of the first day.

With help of prepared exercises participants will learn how to operate with the shaft and bearing module. Using a hands-on approach, the participants will gain confidence in using the software correctly so it can be applied efficiently in their design work.

The second part goes deeper into the sizing and optimization of shafts and of the bearings. The extended calculation possibilities in KISSsoft such as coaxial shaft systems, thermally critical speeds and even tooth trace modifications based on shaft deflection in order to get an optimum load distribution in the meshing will be explained. The determination of bearing lifetime and stiffness will occupy a significant part because it often affects all subsequent results (bending line, shaft strength and/or gear modifications). We give insight to different service life calculation methods including inner geometry, taking into account bearing stiffness and tilting under load and even contact stress in ring material.
