MACHINE DESIGN
This 8 PDH machine design course uses Excel's calculating and
optimizing capabilities. Machine design includes:
1. A description of the needed machine in a written specification.
2. Feasibility studies comparing alternate designs and focused research.
3. Preliminary; sketches, scale CAD drawings, materials selection, appearance
and styling.
4. Functional analysis; strength, stiffness, vibration, shock, fatigue,
temperature, wear, lubrication. Customer endurance and maintenance cost
estimate.
5. Producibility; machine tools, joining methods, material supply and handling,
manual vs automated manufacture.
6. Cost to design and manufacture one or more models in small and large
quantities.
7. Market place: present competition and life expectancy of the product.
8. Customer service system and facilities.
9. Outsource part or all; engineering, manufacturing, sales, warehousing,
customer service.
Backhoe
Above is the image in its original context on the page:
www.chesterfieldgroup.co.uk/products/mobile.html
Strength and Stiffness Analysis
The strength and stiffness analysis of the backhoe begins with a, "Free Body
Diagram" of one of the members, shown above :
Force F1 = Hydraulic pressure x piston area.
Weight W = arm material volume x density.
Force F3 = (Moments due to F1 and W) / (L1 x cos A4)
Force F2 = ( (F1 cos A1)  (W sin A3) + (F3 cos A4) ) / cos A2
Moment Mmax = F1 x cos A1 x L1
Arm applied bending stress, S = K x Mmax D2 / (2 I)
I = arm area moment of inertial at D2 and
K = combined vibration shock factor.
Safety factor, SF = Material allowable stress / Applied stress
The applied stress and safety factor must be calculated at each high stress
point.
Pick and Place Robot
A gripper is attached at the bottom end of the vertical X direction actuator. The
vertical actuator is supported by a horizontal Y direction actuator. The Y direction
actuator is moved in the horizontal Z direction by the bottom actuator.
This pickandplace robot can be programmed to move the gripper rapidly from point
to point anywhere in the X, Y, Z three dimensional zone. For more click on the, "Pwr
Screw" tab at the bottom of the display.
Shredder
Above is the image in its original context on the page: www.traderscity.com/.../
Material to be shredded falls by gravity or is conveyed into the top inlet.
A rotating disc with replicable cutters in its circumference performs the shredding.
The tensile stress in a rotating disc, S = V2 x / 3 lbf/in2.
The disc is mounted and keyed to a shaft supported by roller bearings on each side.
The shaft is directly coupled to a three phase electric motor.
The coupling joining the motor and disc shafts is covered by a safety guard.
The replicable bearings have seals to keep the grease or oil lubricant in and
the dust and grit out.
Quick release access panels are provided for clearing jams and cutter
replacement.
A large, steel rod reinforced concrete pad, foundation is usually provided for
absorbing dynamic shredding forces and shock loads.

Automated Packaging Machine
The relatively high cost of labor in the United States requires automated
manufacturing and assembly to be price and quality competitive in the world
market. The product packaging machine above is one example.
Automobile Independent Front Suspension
Above is the image in its original context on the page:
www.hyundai.co.in/tucson/tucson.asp?pageName=...
Coil springs absorb shock loads on bumps and rough roads in the front
suspension above. Double acting shock absorbers dampen suspension
oscillations. Ball joints in the linkage provide swiveling action that allows the
wheel and axle assembly to pivot while moving up and down. The lower arm
pivots on a bushing and shaft assembly attached to the frame cross member.
These components are applied in many other mechanisms.
Spur Gears
Below is the image in its original context on the page:

Select the, "Gears" tab at the bottom of the Excel Worksheet
for more information about spur gears.
Spur Gears
Below is the image in its original context on the page:

Select the, "Gears" tab at the bottom of the Excel Worksheet
for more information about spur gears.
Wheel and Worm Gears
Typical, "Cface worm gearbox below. Cface refers to the round flange used
to attach a mating motor flange. Worm gears offer higher gear ratios in a
smaller package than any other mechanism. A 40 to 1 ratio increases torque
by a factor of 40 while reducing worm gear output shaft speed to 1/40 x input
speed.
The worm may have a single, double, or more thread. The axial pitch of the
worm is equal to the circular pitch of the wheel. Select the, "Gears" tab at the
bottom of the Excel Worksheet for more information about worm gears.

Laser Jet Printer
Above is the image in its original context on the page:
news.thomasnet.com/fullstory/531589
The computerized printer above has many moving parts: linkages, gears,
shafts, bushings, bearings, etc, for manipulating sheets of paper. The design
and analysis of the light weight plastic components of such a printer requires
the same principals as do many heavy duty machines with steel and aluminum
parts.
Observance of functional quality control in the design stage has improved their
reliability in recent years.
This is the end of this worksheet.

* Machine components are designed to withstand: applied direct forces, moments and torsion.
* These loads may be applied gradually, suddenly, and repeatedly.
* The design load is equal to the applied load multiplied by a combined shock and fatigue factor, Ks.
* The average applied design stress must be multiplied by a stress concentration factor K.
* Calculated deflections are compared with required stiffness.
* The material strength is compared with the maximum stress due to combinations of anticipated loads.

TENSION AND COMPRESSION
As shown below, + P = Tension
 P = Compression
Reference: Design of
Machine Elements, by V.M.
Faires, published by: The
Macmillan Company, New
York/CollierMacmillan
Limited, London, England.
Two machine components, shown above, are subjected to loads P at each end.
The force P is resisted by internal stress S which is not uniform.
At the hole diameter D and the fillet radius R stress is 3 times the average value.
This is true for tension +P and compression P.

Shear Stress Distribution
A stress element at the center of the
beam reacts to the vertical load P with a
vertical up shear stress vector at the
right end and down at the other. This is
balanced by horizontal right acting top
and left acting bottom shear stress
vectors. A stress element at the top or
bottom surface of the beam cannot have
a vertical stress vector. The shear stress
distribution is parabolic.

COMPOUND STRESS
Stress Element
The stress element right is at the point of interest in
the machine part subjected to operating: forces,
moments, and torques.
Direct Stresses:
Horizontal, +Fx = tension, Fx = compression.
Vertical, +Fy = tension, Fy = compression.
Shear stress:
Shear stress, Sxy = normal to x and y planes.
Principal Stress Plane:
The vector sum of the direct and shear stresses,
called the principal stress F1, acts on the principal
plane angle A degrees, see right. There is zero
shear force on a principal plane. Angle A may be
calculated from the equation:
Tan 2A = 2 x Sxy / ( Fy  Fx)

shear force on a principal plane. Angle A may be
calculated from the equation:
Tan 2A = 2 x Sxy / ( Fy  Fx)
Principal Stresses:
Two principal stresses, F1 and F2 are required to
balance the horizontal and vertical applied
stresses, Fx, Fy, and Sxy.
The maximum shear stress acts at 45 degrees to
the principal stresses, shown right. The maximum
shear stress is given by:
Smax = ( F2  F1 ) / 2
The principal stress equations are given below.
PRINCIPAL STRESSES
Principal stress, F1 = (Fx+Fy)/2 + [ ((FxFy)/2)^2 + Sxy^2 )^0.5 ]
Principal stress, F2 = (Fx+Fy)/2  [ ((FxFy)/2)^2 + Sxy^2 )^0.5 ]
Max shear stress, Sxy = [Fn(max)  Fn(min)] / 2
Principal plane angle, A = ( ATAN(2*Sxy / (Fy  Fx) ) / 2

Copy write, Machine Design Spreadsheet Calculations by John R Andrew, 6 July 2006
Rev: 26Sep09
Spread Sheet Method:
1. Type in values for the input data.
2. Enter.
3. Answer: X = will be calculated.
4. Automatic calculations are bold type.
DESIGN OF POWER TRANSMISSION SHAFTING
The objective is to calculate the shaft size having the strength and rigidity required to transmit
an applied torque. The strength in torsion, of shafts made of ductile materials are usually
calculated on the basis of the maximum shear theory.
ASME Code states that for shaft made of a specified ASTM steel:
Ss(allowable) = 30% of Sy but not over 18% of Sult for shafts without keyways. These values
are to be reduced by 25% if the shafts have keyways.
Shaft design includes the determination of shaft diameter having the strength and rigidity to
transmit motor or engine power under various operating conditions. Shafts are usually round
and may be solid or hollow.
Shaft torsional shear stress: Ss = T*R / J
Polar moment of area:
J = *D^4 / 32
J = *(D^4  d^4) / 32
Shaft bending stress:
Moment of area:
for solid shafts
for hollow shafts
Sb = M*R / I
I = *D^4 / 64
I = *(D^4  d^4) / 64
for solid shafts
for hollow shafts
The ASME Code equation for shafts subjected to: torsion, bending, axial load, shock, and
fatigue is:
Shaft diameter cubed,
D^3 = (16/*Ss(1K^4))*[ ( (KbMb + (*F*D*(1+K^2)/8 ]^2 + (Kt*T)^2 ]^0.5
Shaft diameter cubed with no axial load,
D^3 = (16/*Ss)*[ (KbMb)^2 + (Kt*T)^2 ]^0.5
K = D/d
D = Shaft outside diameter,
Kb = combined shock & fatigue bending factor
Kt = combined shock & fatigue torsion factor
d = inside diameter
= column factor = 1 / (1  0.0044*(L/k)^2 for L/k < 115
L = Shaft length
k = (I/A)^0.5 = Shaft radius of gyration
A = Shaft section area
For rotating shafts: Kb = 1.5, Kt = 1.0 for gradually applied load
Kb = 2.0, Kt = 1.5 for suddenly applied load & minor shock
Kb = 3.0, Kt = 3.0 for suddenly applied load & heavy shock
Power Transmission Shaft Design Calculations
Input shaft data for your problem below and Excel will calculate the answers, Excel' "Goal
Seek" may be used to optimize the design of shafts, see the Math Tools tab below.

POWER SCREWS
Motor driven: screw jacks, linear actuators, and clamps are examples of power screws.
The essential components are a nut engaging the helical screw threads of a shaft.
A nut will advance one screw thread pitch per one 360 degree rotation on a single pitch screw.
A nut will advance two screw thread pitches per one 360 degree rotation on a double pitch
screw, etc.
The actuator nut below advances or retreats as the motor shaft turns clockwise or antclockwise. The nut is prevented from rotating by the upper and lower guide slots. The control
system of a stepper motor rotates the shaft through a series of small angles very accurately
repeatedly. The linear travel of the lug & nut is precise and lockable.
Pitch (P) is the distance from a point on one thread to the corresponding point on the next thread.
Lead (n*P) is the distance a nut advances each complete revolution.
Multiple pitch number (n) refers to single (n=1), double (n=2), triple (n=3) pitch screw.

Damped Vibrations With Forcing Function
The inertia forces of rotating and oscillating machinery cause elastic supports to vibrate.
Vibration amplitudes can be reduced by installing vibration damping mounting pads or springs.
Simple Vibrating Systems
External forcing function F(t) varies with time and is externally applied to the mass M.
We will assume, F(t) = Fm*Sin(t)
Fm is the maximum applied force.
M is the mass of the vibration object that is equal to W/g.
Omega, is the angular frequency as defined below.
g is the gravitational constant, 32.2 ft/sec^2.
X is the displacement from the equilibrium position.
C is the damping constant force per second velocity
and is proportional to velocity.
K is the spring stiffness force per inch.
See, "Math Tools" for Vibration
Forcing Function Calculations.
Undamped Vibrations
If the mass M shown above is displaced through distance x and released it will vibrate freely.
Undamped vibrations are called free vibrations. Both x and g are measured in inch units.

Transmissibility (TR)
Transmissibility is the ratio of the force
transmitted to a machine's supports
due to a periodic imbalance in an; engine,
pump, compressor, pulverizer, motor, etc.
The amplitude of vibrations in machinery
mountings can be reduced with resilient
pads or springs called isolators.
The isolated system must have a natural
frequency less than 0.707 x the disturbing
periodic imbalance force.
The vibration amplitude will increase if the
isolated system has a natural frequency
higher than 0.707 x the disturbing frequency.
Transmissibility ratio is equal to the, mass displacement amplitude / base displacement amplitude.
TR =
X2 / X1
The transmissibility ratio TR, is the vibration amplitude reduction.

Balancing Rotating Shafts
Masses in the Same Plane
For static balance:
Two masses, M1 and M2 must be in the
same plane and 180 degrees out of
phase and moments must balance:
mi*Ri = 0
M1*R1+ M2*R2 = 0
Masses in Different Planes
For static and dynamic balance there must
be no unbalanced moments and couples.
When the masses are in the same plane
static and dynamic balance occurs when:
mi*Ri*Xi = 0
M2*R2*X2+ M3*R3*X3 + M4*R4*X4 = 0
The crank (Mc) is statically and dynamically
balanced by two counter weights, M1 & M2,
all three masses are in the same plane.
Find the masses of the two counterweights.

The Vibration Forcing Function
One end of a spring having stiffness K1 is connected to mass M1 on wheels and
the other end is connected to a vertical wall. One end of a second spring having
stiffness K2 is connected to mass M2 on wheels and the other end is connected
to mass M1.
A force applied to mass M1 initiates the vibration. Friction is small enough to be
neglected.
Max kinetic energy, K.E. = (1/2)*M1^2* ^2 + (1/2)*M2^2* ^2
Max potential energy, P.E. = (1/2)*K1*X1^2 + (1/2)*K2*(X2  X1)^2
Neglecting friction, Max K.E. =
Max P.E.
^2 = [K1+K2*((X2/X1)  1)^2]/ [(M1+M2*(X2/X1)^2]

Excel's, Equation "Solver"
Excel's Solver can solve one equation of the form: y equals a function of x, y = f(x). The
function of x can be a polynomial; ( a + bx + cx2 + dx3 +. zxn ), an exponential: ( ae nx ), a
logarithmic: a(logx), trigonometric: ( aSin x + bCos x), or any other function of x.
Also Excel's Solver can solve multple simultaneous equations; linear, nonlinear, or a mixture
of the two.
Excel iteratively adjusts one input value of x to cause one calculated formula cell value of y to
equal a target value of y.
