3.6.1 Calculating Torque, shear force and diameter of the shaft
The free body diagram of the shaft of shredder is shown below.
The shear forces and shaft diameter
are calculated as follows;
Shear force to shred plastic (Fsh):
Figure 1Figure 11: Knife cutting forces and chipping diagram (Bello & Onilude,
Sut (PET plastic) = 55 MPa (Mathweb, n.d.)
Sus = 31.73 MPa
Assume F.O.S = 2
Cutting Force (Fc)
Sy = 80 Mpa (Warlimont H. , Martienssen, 2005)
Power at shaft
Moment at point C
Moment at point B
Since thermoplastics are elastic thus cutting is preferred over shearing.
Kt = 2.0
Kb = 2.0
Ccording to the objective applied force should be equal to 400 N (maximum force
exerted by a human.
To convert torque, the force in multiplied with lever’s length which is 0.4 m
400 x 0.14 = 56 N m
Converting Nm into pound force m
56 N.m = 12.5893 lb force m
