Applying torque on a shaft

How to apply torque on shaft?

Hi @daniel11,

you can have a look at this project: Static Analysis of a Shaft under a Torque load

For general information about Boundary conditions in Solid Mechanics, pleae have a look at:

Solid Mechanics - Boundary Conditions

If you need anything else, please let me know.

I made 2 examples, and I got error in running.
I try to apply a torque and fix on 2 tube planes.
Whats the problem?


Hi @daniel11,

you would have to set e_x & e_y to zero and e_z to 1 since you are turning around the z-axis (“Right-hand rule”).

Let me know how it goes.

P.S.: Sent you a link with a small modification in your model.

Cheers! :slight_smile:

The torque mNm is [Nm] or [mili Nm] ?

It is Nm

The m might be a little bit irritating here but refers to “moment” :slight_smile:
