Effect of bearing clearance on Cardan-joint kinematics

I. S. Fischer, M. C. Liu

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The effect of radial bearing clearance at the intermediate joints of a Cardan-type universal joint has been investigated. It is found that errors in displacement at the output and also intermediate joints occur, and that their amplitudes have a linear relationship to the magnitudes of the radial bearing clearances.
