The power requirement of machinery is a necessary consideration for the sizing and selection of machine elements in the design process. The decision process of designing gears, belt drives, clutches, brakes, and bearings are designed and sized based on the power requirement of the application. I have written a software program that calculates the power requirements for three different design applications. This software program simplifies and streamlines the design and selection process by allowing the student to calculate the horsepower and torque requirement.
