Shaft and Axle both performs revolutionary motion about its
axis. But main difference is being that SHAFT is always
DRIVEN for eg. crankshaft of the I.C. engine. While AXLE
causes other member to drive for e.g. the front and rear
axle of 4 wheeler always drives the wheels.
Axles are rotating or non-rotating members which are
subjected to only bending moments due to members supported
by it. It does not transmit torque. In other words, an axle
is not twisted it only bends.
Shafts are rotating members which are subjected to bending
moments and twisting moments and sometimes to axial loads.
It twists and transmits power.
i woule my experiences in BARC i recently gone for the
interview.. they dont consider u r dress code and all, even
u can go in a jeans and tea shirt.they dont careabout u r
personality , profile .. Theytest (complety) our technical
knowledge.. so u have to prepare well in not only the
basics but also in depth.. Even the did not consider the
percentile in GATE.. One guy got 99.63 in gate but did not
given medical. so u have to be very stiff and togh
technically.. u should have a lot of luck too,because right
panel selects u..
u dont expect what,how in Barc,only why.i amnot frightening
u, i am telling u some facts i have faced.. istead of all i
did it superbly and waiting for the result.. if u want more
information, u can email me ,call me at any time..
