Application Requirements Calculate Required Torque
Begin the calculation with this basic formula:
T = Torque (in foot-pounds)
N = Speed (in RPM)
W = Weight of the Rotating Member (in pounds)
K2 = Radius of Gyration (in feet)
t = Starting time (in seconds)
The radius of gyration is the distance from the center of rotation at which the entire rotating mass could be concentrated and still be equivalent to the actual distributed mass (see axis diagrams).
For multiple shaft systems, use the following formula:
Calculate Heat Dissipation
Heat dissipation must also be considered in sizing a clutch. To find the amount of heat which an application will generate, which in turn must be dissipated, use the following formulae:
