KISSsoft Offers Standards in the Shaft Strength Calculation
February 27, 2014—For an analytical strength assessement, in the first instance the currently valid standard has to be applied. Therefore, an essential task of KISSsoft is to provide the user with the latest calculation standards. In the Release 03/2013, several standards are affected – amongst others the shaft strength calculation according to DIN 743 (module WA6) and the FKM guideline (module WA7).
The shaft calculation standard DIN 743:2012 contains now the proof in order to avoid incipient cracks on hard surface layers. Furthermore, calculation with load spectra according to the method "Miner extended" and slight modifications of the technological size influence coefficient K1 are available.
The 6th Edition of the FKM guideline implies currently some changes considering the material data and the calculation of the support factor number according to the material-mechanical concept.
Comparisons to the previous edition of the two standards were performed by KISSsoft and are available on request.
