10-7. Holzer Method for Branched Systems. The Holzer method

may also be applied to branched systems following the same procedure
we used for in-line systems, if we make up tables for each branch of the
Using the system of Fig. 10-10 to illustrate the method, we make
a normal Holzer table for branch 1, as shown in Table 10-8o. Branch 1 is
arbitrarily taken as the primary branch with a unit angular deflection at
1 1. Assuming a frequency of co = 64.88 radians/sec, we note that the
bull-gear deflection is 0.05825.

It is not possible to continue Table I0-80 beyond the bull gear for
branch 2, since the net distribution of torque at the bull gear is unknown.
Consequently, the calculation for branch 2 is started from the outboard
end with h, as shown in Table 10-86. The proper deflection for initiating
this table is not known, but the bull-gear deflection is known to equal
- -
0.05825, and hence the deflection of Ia = ( 0.05825) ( 2) . To avoid -
the complication caused by this state of affairs where we wish to start
the table at the outboard end and know only the deflection at the
inboard end of the shaft, we assume that all values of torque and angle
in the table are multiplied by some factor a. This permits us to work
out the table and obtain as the deflection for I0 the value of 0.91534.
This gives us the equation
0.91534a = (-2) (-0.05825) = 0.1165
and hence
= 0.127275

Since all values of torque and deflection in Table 10-86 are multiplied
by this value of a, the torque on the bull gear from this branch is
Torque from branch 2 = 0.1 27275 (-2) (74,043) = -18,848 in.-lb

The other branches of the system are handled in the same manner with
