In this study, a compliant version of the cardan universal joint whose compliant parts are made of blue polished spring steel is considered. The original design consist of two identical parts assembled at right angles with respect to each other. Identical parts can be produced from planar materials; thus, it has the advantage of easiness in manufacturing. As a design example, two mechanisms are dimensioned with different plate thicknesses. The resultant stresses at flexural hinges of these samples are determined via analytical and finite element analysis method. Torque capacity of these mechanisms are determined. Also fatigue analysis of these mechanisms are performed. Further, one of these samples is manufactured and operated under three different conditions. It is verified that results of experiments are consistent with theoretical approaches.

Steel compliant Cardan universal joint
Tanık, Çağıl Merve; Parlaktaş, Volkan; Tanık, Engin; Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat (Elsevier BV, 2015-10)
In this paper, a compliant Cardan universal joint made of steel is introduced. This is the first steel compliant universal joint that is reported in the literature. The mechanism is produced from two different sheet metals; thus, it has the advantage of easiness in manufacturing. Many mechanisms with different dimensions are designed. Resultant stresses at flexural hinges are determined via analytical and finite element analysis method. Torque transmission capacities of these mechanisms are determined. Guid...
Designing of Ti-Mg composites for various applications
Bütev Öcal, Ezgi; Dericioğlu, Arcan F.; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2019)
In this study, galvanic corrosion of Ti-Mg based composites has been examined by combining different Mg-alloys with Ti6Al4V alloy and by addition of Na-rich layer between two dissimilar metals. After determining the wetting behavior of liquid unalloyed Mg, AZ91, and WE43 alloys on solid Ti6Al4V alloy, three different composites were manufactured via infiltration of liquid Mg/Mg-alloys into porous Ti6Al4V alloy skeletons. The same procedure was also repeated after coating the porous surfaces of Ti6Al4V alloy...
Modelling of variable friction in cold forging
Cora, Oe N.; Akkök, Metin; Darendeliler, Haluk (2008-11-01)
In metal forming operations, the friction between die and workpiece is a complex phenomenon and has a strong influence on the metal forming parameters and the product quality This study aims to investigate the effect of friction in cold forging operations using different friction models. In the analyses, the forging operations are simulated using the Coulomb and constant friction models, and the results are compared with the simulation results obtained by using the variable friction models developed by Wanh...
Analytical modeling of spindle-tool dynamics on machine tools using Timoshenko beam model and receptance coupling for the prediction of tool point FRF
Erturk, A.; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Budak, E. (2006-12-01)
Regenerative chatter is a well-known machining problem that results in unstable cutting process, poor surface quality and reduced material removal rate. This undesired self-excited vibration problem is one of the main obstacles in utilizing the total capacity of a machine tool in production. In order to obtain a chatter-free process on a machining center, stability diagrams can be used. Numerically or analytically, constructing the stability lobe diagram for a certain spindle-holder-tool combination implies...
