# Force Calculation

02/17/2008 11:48 PM

hi good morning.

As I want to couple two shafts with threads like pipe connections with union.

so how to calculate the force (i.e. load) that can be withstand or transfer by this joint?

Regards,

Even if you know the stuff you need the torque to be transmitted as a guide for the feasabilty analysis.

Why calculate? Is it too expensive to simply measure it? If not, you would have had your answer by now.

In general computing is a LOT less expensive than a test, but of course one should know how to compute.

Can be - which is why I asked. So your answer to the question is to "compute it"?

I know how to compute it but the information is not covering all aspects required for a model for computation.

More inputs are required:

mainly a sketch of the connection to have all details of the principle since a literary explanation can be interpreted in several ways. A sketch or a drawing is always better as explanation.

If this will be send then i can see if the principle is correct and indicate how it could be calculated.
