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.

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...
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...
Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis of a Spiral Bevel Geared System
Yavuz, Siar Deniz; Saribay, Zihni Burcay; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2017-02-02)
A nonlinear dynamic model of a spiral bevel gear train mounted on flexible shafts and bearings is proposed in this study. The finite element model of shafts is combined with a three-dimensional discrete mesh model of a spiral bevel gear pair. Bearing flexibilities are as well included in the model. Gear backlash is incorporated into the model in the form of clearance-type displacement functions and clearance nonlinearity and stiffness fluctuations of the bearings are neglected. A time-invariant mesh stiffne...
Nonlinear vibration analysis of bladed disks with dry friction dampers
Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (2006-08-22)
in this work, a new model is proposed for the vibration analysis of turbine blades with dry friction dampers. The aim of the study is to develop a multiblade model that is accurate and yet easy to be analyzed so that it can be used efficiently in the design of friction dampers. The suggested nonlinear model for a bladed disk assembly includes all the blades with blade to blade and/or blade to cover plate dry friction dampers. An important feature of the model is that both macro-slip and micro-slip models ar...
