The Evolution of a Constant Velocity Universal Joint 650086

The development of the constant velocity universal joint offers the twofold advantage of correcting universal joint induced vibration in present day passenger cars, as well as allowing greater flexibility in driveline design.
This paper discusses briefly various design variables which entered into the development of the constant velocity universal joint as well as qualification tests undertaken in the laboratory to determine performance suitability. Future applications to powered steering axles and swing axles may well improve the competitive position of this type universal joint.
