QUESTION: 1

### The critical speed of a uniform shaft with a rotor at the centre of the span can be reduced by

Solution: QUESTION: 2

### A compacting machine shown in the figure below is used to create a desired thrust force by using a rack and pinion arrangement. The input gear is mounted on tile motor shaft. The gears have involute teeth of 2 mm module. Q.  If the drive efficiency is 80%, then torque required on the input shaft to create 1000 N output thrust is

Solution:   QUESTION: 3

### A compacting machine shown in the figure below is used to create a desired thrust force by using a rack and pinion arrangement. The input gear is mounted on tile motor shaft. The gears have involute teeth of 2 mm module. Q.  If the pressure angle of the rack is 20°, then force acting along the line of action between the rack and the gear teeth is

Solution: QUESTION: 4

Assertion (A): The critical speed of an elastic shaft calculated by the Rayleigh's method is higher than the actual critical speed.

Reason (R): The higher critical speed is due to higher damping ratio.

Solution:
QUESTION: 5

An epicyclic gear train is shown schematically in the adjacent figure.

The sun gear 2 on the input shaft is a 20 teeth external gear. The planet gear 3 is a 40 teeth external gear. The ring gear 5 is a 100 teeth internal gear. The ring gear 5 is fixed and the gear 2 is rotating at 60 rpm (ccw = counter-clockwise and cw = clockwise).
The arm 4 attached to the output shaft will rotate at Solution:
QUESTION: 6

The danger of breakage and vibration is maximum?

Solution:
QUESTION: 7

Two mating spur gears have 40 and 120 teeth respectively. The pinion rotates at 1200 rpm and transmits a torque of 20 Nm. The torque transmitted by the gear is

Solution:  where, NP speed of pinion, NG speed of gear wheel

TG = number of teeth of gear,
TP = number of teeth of pinion Since power transmitted by both gear will be equal where, TP = torque transmitted by pinion, TG = torque transmitted by gear wheel QUESTION: 8

A shaft of 50 mm diameter and 1 m length carries a disc which has mass eccentricity equal to 190 microns. The displacement of the shaft at a speed which is 90% of critical speed in microns is

Solution:
QUESTION: 9

The arm OA of an epicyclic gear train shown in figure revolves counter clockwise about O with an angular velocity of 4 rad/s. Both gears are of same size. The angular velocity of gear C, if the sun gear B is fixed, is Solution:  QUESTION: 10

If a spring-mass-dashpot system is subjected to excitation by a constant harmonic force, then at resonance, its amplitude of vibration will be

Solution:
QUESTION: 11

Whirling speed of a shaft coincides with the natural frequency of its

Solution:
QUESTION: 12

The sun gear in the figure is driven clockwise at 100 rpm. The ring gear is held stationary. For the number of teeth shown on the gears, the arm rotates at Solution: For 5 Re volutions Of Sun , Arm rotates by 1
∴ for 100 revolutions of Sun, Arm rotates by 100/5 = 20
