Design Practice Automotive Driveline Splines and Serrations 680009
This paper covers the detail considerations between the initial decision specifying the use of a spline or serration and the final specified tooth proportions.
Spline requirements and the manufacturing processes with their associated limitations are discussed. The selection of the spline parameters are explained with respect to the requirements along with spline testing, drafting standards, inspection, and specified situations. Examples of current industry application and practice are presented.
