Critical Speed Failure Mode of a Steel Driveshaft 982764

This paper discusses the failure mode of a steel driveshaft as it goes into an unstable state as the shaft approaches its critical speed. Two axial buckling theories, Johnson and Euler, will be used to verify the cause of failure for a driveshaft exhibiting the phenomenon of catastrophic failure at its natural bending frequency.
