Does anybody know what is the best way to constrain that shaft at the bearings journals? The shaft is loaded radially by force and a torque is applied also?
If I use bearing support (rigid, self aligning) the torque does not pass through them. If I use fixed hinges, the torque passes through them, but now the supports do not bend. See below the images.
