Asked by: Kevin M Murphy
Subject: Using for Stability
Question: I need to design a gryo that will act as a stabilizing device, very similiar to a Ship Stabilizing Gyro. Not a rate gryo though. I dont know how to calculate what mass must be spinning at what rate to appose a moment of 1375 ft lbs. The preferable diameter of the gryo would be 10 - 12 inches. The vertical axis of the gryo is 30 inches and the destabilizing force is applied at the top. The rotating disk is not necessarily in the middle of the axis.any help would be appreciated. Thanks
