Stresses in Rotating Disks & Rings
Purpose of Calculation
Calculation of stresses in rotating Disks and Rings resulting from inertial forces
The various calculations have been checked against example in above texts.
The theoretical derivation of the equations is found on the above website.
Important Note:Please only enter data in the identified coloured cells.
This page includes simple equations for calulating the tangential and radial stresses in rotating disks and rings. The rotating disks /rings are assumed to have small thicknes compared to the diameters. The axial stress are assumed to be zero.
