Degree of Freedom of Twin Tripod Universal Joints

Abstract:

Article Preview

The structure and characteristic of the twin tripod sliding universal joint were studied in this paper. The degree of freedom was calculated theoretically and then the structure of this joint was improved to obtain single degree of freedom. At the same time, the degree of freedom of improved mechanisms was checked by using the CAD software Pro/E. This work offers the base for further research and development of this universal joint.
