Abstract:
Development is being undertaken of a new type of flexible drive providing lateral displacement between rotating shafts in an axial length no greater than the lateral displacement. These large displacements are undertaken whilst maintaining full torque, constant velocity and with dynamic stability. Minimal forces are reacted on external bearings.Description is given of the mechanical design and automotive implementation together with an outline of the driving and dynamic loads within the unit during displacement.Application studies are described for incorporation of the unit into a range of vehicles including front wheel drive, four wheel drive, off highway and trucks.
