ASME standard for shaft design

ASME standard for shaft design

ASME standard for shaft design


Which is the current edition or standard for ASME B106.1m standard?
One can see on ANSI website that ASME B106.1m is already withdrawn but doesn't have the superseding standard name.
I am also eager to know, which standard is used by EXPERTS for shaft design?
Is the method used in new standard same as the one used in SHIGLEY'S Mechanical Engineering Design?


RE: ASME standard for shaft design

The Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (CEMA) has endorsed the use of the withdrawn ASME/ANSI standard -

“ANSI B106.1 was withdrawn in 1994. 1995, the CEMA Eng. Conference determined that the methods used by the former standard were technically sound and consistent with modern fatigue analysis methods. Therefore, the relevant data from ANSI B106.1M remains incorporated” appears in CEMA publications.

RE: ASME standard for shaft design

My copy of Machinery's Handbook has sections on SHAFTS/Shaft Calculation. It is stated in the section on Design of Transmission Shafting that the calculations are based on "the former American Standard ASA B17c Code for the Design of Transmission Shafting." Whatever THAT is.

Many moons ago I had to design a shaft for industrial purposes and found the Handbook's method to be so much more easy & practical than that given in my ancient Shigley's book.

RE: ASME standard for shaft design

Thank you dvd & TygerDawg for your valuable comments.
TygerDawg, as per my info ASA B17c doesn't consider fatigue as a design criteria whereas latest (8th edn) Shigley's book does.
