Shaft systems

The MESYS Shaft Calculation can be extended to shaft systems. This allows the calculation for whole gearboxes considering gears, shafts and bearings.

The shaft system calculation allows:

    • Calculation of shaft systems like gearboxes
    • Calculation of planetary gear sets
    • Connection of shafts by gear pairs (helical, bevel or worm gears)
    • Connection of shafts by belts
    • Calculation of rotation speeds
    • Calculation of load distribution using a coupled FEA beam model
    • Interface to programs for gear design:
    • Graphics for line load over the width if gears
    • Definition of load spectra on system level
    • Configurations to support variants in power flow
    • Natural frequencies and critical speeds on system level coupled be gear pairs
    • Display of mode shapes on system level, 3D animated
    • 3D-elastic housings and planet carriers
    • All features from the basic shaft and bearing calculation as bearing life according ISO/TS 16281 and shaft strength according DIN 743
