MODERN aeroplane design necessitates the use of high powered engines, frequently used in conjunction with large diameter airscrews and low reduction gear ratios. This, causes very high torque loads on the mounting, these loads often being greater than those due to any other causes. Obviously then, the distribution of these torque loads must be found accurately for they have an important bearing on the efficiency of the final design. The following analytical method of determining the distribution has been found both convenient and accurate.
