Kinematics Simulation of Twin Tripod Sliding Universal Joints
This work compares two kinds of kinematics simulation of the twin tripod sliding universal joint. On the basis of the structural characteristics of the twin tripod sliding universal joint, the multi-body dynamic model was established by using the CAD software Pro/E. Track of the tripod center and a lot of analysis results are obtained, It offers the base for further research of the universal joint.
