Design and Application of Universal Joints for Off-Highway Vehicles 650681

The most important design considerations which must be made when selecting or evaluating a drive shaft application are discussed in simplified equations and tables. Stress formulas, fatigue curves for various components, and universal joint bearing life curves are discussed and presented in easy-to use form. The data presented should provide rapid technical assistance to vehicle designers and engineers for most drive-line problems. The use of these formulas and curves are demonstrated in a typical vehicle analysis.
