Prediction of the Life of CVJ Boot in Design Stage and Establishment of an Optimal Design Method with FEA 980847

In a stage of designing a CVJ boot, analytic conditions of FEA method are established so that values calculated with the FEA method coincide with the actually measured values. This has made it possible to predict the life of the boot under bench testing. Furthermore, the boot field life can also be predicted by the minor rule based on the joint-angle frequencies of a vehicle. As a result, it has become possible to determine an optimal configuration in the design stage and to decrease the number of test cycles, resulting in reduced development lead time.
