    - Axle: It is a non-rotating machine element and is used to support rotating machine elements such as wheels, pulleys, etc.

    - It does not transmit torque and is subjected to bending moment or axial force.

    - Front and rear axle of car, wheel axle of motorcycle are the examples of axles.
