These equations will determine the torque requirements for a electric motor operating with a hollow shaft driven by the motor.

To determine a fan or blowers horsepower when driving a hollow cylinder/shaft use the following equation. 


Hollow Cylinder

Where:

T =   Required Torque, lb-ft
WK2 =   Mass Moment of Inertia of load to be accelerated  lb-ft2
(See Mass moment of inertia calculations)
Change of speed, rpm
t =  Time to accelerate the load, seconds
W = Weight of object, lb
R1 = Outside Radius of cylinder, ft
R2 = Inside Radius of cylinder, ft
