Question details

Problem 2: The solid propeller shaft on a ship extends outward from the hull. During operation it turns at ω-15 rad/sec when the engine develops 900 kW of power. This causes a thrust of F = 1.23 x 106 N on the shaft. If the shaft has a diameter of 250 mm, determine the safety factor if the material is Steel with SY= 450 MPa. 0.75 m
