Double Cardan Constant Velocity Universal Joint 740671

The double Cardan joint is a solution for many driveline design configurations where the speed and included continuous operating universal joint angle requirements make it impossible to use a single Cardan joint.
The basic design principals, dynamic operating characteristics, and the application of the double Cardan constant velocity universal joint are presented as a guide to the application of the double Cardan-type universal joint. Vehicle concepts are made possible with the preferred or most convenient location of components by using a double Cardan design. It offers an economical solution to driveline configurations that must operate at unequal compound angles.
