ABSTRACTA rigid coupling is a unit of hardware used to join two shafts within a motor ormechanical system. It may be used to connect two separate systems, such as a motor anda generator, or to repair a connection within a single system. A rigid coupling may alsobe added between shafts to reduce shock and wear at the point where the shafts meet.Flanged coupling is a type of rigid coupling in which two co-linear shafts are connectedby the flanges. The coupling enables torque transmission between the shafts & preventsrelative rotation between them.In the project work a flanged coupling was made by local material available & theanalysis of various stresses & safety factor was also performed.The outcome of analysis is theres no danger of failure by pure shear, even if a fatiguestrength reduction factor is included, but this same section may have severe &undefinable bending stresses on it if the flanges are imperfectly aligned, and they surelywill be. The bolts bending was neglected since they were too small compared to theresult outcome.Finally, the computed factor of safety of the flanges suggest that it would withstandrepeated bending if the misalignment is small.II 4.

CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION OBJECTIVES 10. 1.1 INTRODUCTION:A coupling is a device used to connect two shafts together at their ends for the purposeof transmitting power. Couplings do not normally allow disconnection of shafts duringoperation, however there are torque limiting couplings which can slip or disconnectwhen some torque limit is exceeded.The primary purpose of couplings is to join two pieces of rotating equipment whilepermitting some degree of misalignment or end movement or both. By careful selection,installation and maintenance of couplings, substantial savings can be made in reducedmaintenance costs and downtime.Couplings are used to connect two shafts for torque transmission in varied applications.It may be to connect two units such as a motor and a generator or it may be to form along line shaft by connecting shafts of standard lengths say 6-8m by couplings.Coupling may be rigid or they may provide flexibility and compensate formisalignment. They may also reduce shock loading and vibration. A wide variety ofcommercial shaft couplings are available ranging from a simple keyed coupling to onewhich requires a complex design procedure using gears or fluid drives etc.However there are two main types of couplings:a. Rigid couplingsb. Flexible couplingsa) Rigid CouplingRigid Couplings are mainly used in areas where the two shafts are coaxial to each other.There are many types of couplings that fall under the rigid couplings category. They areRigid Sleeve or Muff Couplings-This is the basic type of coupling. This consists of a pipe whose bore is finished to therequired tolerance based on the shaft size. Based on the usage of the coupling a keywayin made in the bore in order to transmit the torque by means of the key. Two threadedholes are provided in order to lock the coupling in position. The photo shows a type ofthe rigid sleeve or muff coupling.Fig. 1.1 : Muff couplingb) Flexible CouplingFlexible couplings are used to transmit torque from one shaft to another when the twoshafts are slightly misaligned. Flexible couplings can accommodate varying degreesof misalignment up to 3 and some parallel misalignment. In addition, they can alsobe used for vibration damping or noise reduction. The material used to manufacturethe beam coupling also affects its performance and suitability for specific applicationssuch as food, medical and aerospace. Materials are typically aluminum alloy andstainless steel, but they can also be made in acetal, maraging steeland titanium. Themost common applications are attaching encoders to shafts and motion controlfor robotics.Page-1 11.

CHAPTER 2 HISTORICAL BACKGROUND SAFETY FACTOR IMPORTANCE OF SAFETY FACTOR SHEAR STRESS & COMPRESSION STRESS UNIT OF SAFETY FACTOR UNIT OF STRESS DESCRIPTION FUNCTION ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES DRAWBACKS 14. 2.1 Historical Background:In 1545, Italian mathematician Girolamo Cardano theorized that the principal ofgimbals could be used to transmit rotary motion through an angled connection, whichwas developed into the Cardan Shaft, which was said to deliver a smoother ride, alongwith being more efficient and less prone to breakdowns because the shaft was alwaysat a 90 degree angle to the axle. This new concept was actually first seen in 1548 onthe carriage of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles the 5th.Then in 1676, Robert Hooke revisited Cardanos idea and used it to make aninstrument that would allow for a safer way to study the sun. This new instrument useda new type of joint that allowed for twisting motion in one shaft to be passed on toanother, no matter how the two shafts were oriented. It would take another 240 yearsfor Clarence W. Spicer to come along and apply this idea to the automotive andindustrial industries. Spicer received a patent for the universal joint in 1903 anddemonstrated his new patent in a self-designed car, which did not have a troublesomechain & sprocket nor did it have chain and geared adaptions. Spicer would then beginmanufacturing in 1904.Human invented the transformation of energy. Soon they learnt to transfer it usingshaft. But in many cases they were unable to transfer power by shafts due tomisalignment, length of the shaft & its bending property. So they tried hard & inventedthe way of transmitting power by shafts in all possible situations. The mechanical jointthey invented was named coupling.2.2 Safety Factor- Design Factor:Factor of safety (FoS) or safety factor (SF) is ordinarily a number obtained that isdivided into a criterion of strength in order to obtain a design criterion. In the literalmeaning of this words, factor of safety would indicate by what factor the design issafe, but as actually used this is not true. Since its meaning does no
