Effect of bearing clearance on cardan-joint kinematics

I. S. Fischer, M. C. Liu

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The effect of radial bearing clearance at the intermediate joints of a Cardan typ uruversaljomt has been investigated. It is found that errors m displacement at the output and also intermediate joints occur. and that their amplitudes have a linear relationship to the magrutudes of the radial bearing clearances.
