Stresses in Rotating Rings Calculator was developed to calculate radial / tangential stresses
(inertia stresses), the change of the inner and outer radiuses of
a ring which rotates about its own axis with a uniform angular velocity. The calculator is
valid for homogeneous annular disk of uniform thickness. It has been assumed that the effect of
deformation could be ignored and the rotating ring is rigid. Rotating elements, such as flywheels and blowers, can be simplified as a rotating
ring and stress calculation can be done..The formulas used for calculations are given in the List of
If there are radial pressures
or pulls distributed uniformly along
either the inner or outer perimeter of the disk, these stresses shall be superimposed upon the inertia
stresses calculated here.
Stresses, moments, and
shears due to balanced forces (including gravity) shall also be superimposed upon calculated
values in here.
