Hi! Can anyone explain/show what's behind the computations of "ideal diameter"? Thanks!

Problems exist because there are solutions to find out.

I've never heard the term before, but my guess would be: the smallest shaft possible without exceeding the material yield stress.

 Ideal Diameter The graph shows an ideal shape of the shaft is based on the bending moment and calculates a diameter of a circular section which results in a 50MPa stress in every given coordinate of the shaft. This graph is independent on the selected shaft material. It shows the overall relations of the shape based on some constant stress.

Thanks for the replies.

I understand that "ideal diameter" is the design proposal. I need a computation to see how it arrived into such values. Also, what does this mean " 50 Mpa stress in every coordinate"?

I trying to find out what is behind the calculation. This is justify if the results are useful.
