Investigation of mechanical vibrations of double-double cardan shaft and effects on suspension system in armored vehicles

Işık, Özgen
Cardan joint is used for transmitting angular motion with angled connection. The more misalignment angle is implemented, the more fluctuation occurs in output shaft in terms of twist angle and angular velocity. To present fluctuations in output shaft, two different types of solution methods are proposed, which are ode23s and Newmark’s method. Due to transmission ratio relationship of cardan joint, there occurs nonlinearity in equations of motions. Therefore, proposed methods include solutions for nonlinear two degree of ordinary differential equations. In order to avoid fluctuation, Z- and W- configurations can be used. Although Z- and W- configurations prevent fluctuations in output shaft, misalignment angle can be increased only up to . By using Newmark’s and ode23s methods, twist angles and angular velocities for input, intermediate and output shafts are established. Besides, changing variables which are misalignment angle, stiffness, inertia and damping are also included in this study. For the applications which require more misalignment angle and transmitting torque and angular velocity without energy loss, double-double cardan shaft can be used. Although double-double cardan shaft system provides misalignment angle up to 47 it is not a cost effective solution. As an alternative solution, single-double establishment is also included in thesis. Twist vi angle and angular velocity comparisons of single, double-double and single-double cardan shaft are presented. Depending on the characteristics of input, intermediate and output shafts, single-double might be preferred by considering vibration levels thanks to low cost.

In this study, an anisotropic thin-walled "Composite Box Beam" as the "Wing System" is used to consider the effects of the fiber orientation and the lay-up configuration on the aeroelastic stability and the dynamic response of an aircraft wing. The present "Circumferentially Asymmetric Stiffness Model (CAS)" takes into account a group of non-classical effects; such as the transverse shear, the material anisotropy, warping inhibition, etc. The "Aerodynamic Strip Method" based on "Wagner Functions" in unstead...
Measurement of isolated photon production in pp and PbPb collisions at root s(NN)=2.76 TeV
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2012-04-01)
Isolated photon production is measured in proton-proton and lead-lead collisions at nucleon-nucleon centre-of-mass energies of 2.76 TeV in the pseudorapidity range vertical bar eta vertical bar < 1.44 and transverse energies E-T between 20 and 80 GeV with the CMS detector at the LHC. The measured ET spectra are found to be in good agreement with next-to-leading-order perturbative QCD predictions. The ratio of PbPb to pp isolated photon E-T-differential yields, scaled by the number of incoherent nucleon-nucl...
Optimization of a Convex Rail Design for Electromagnetic Launchers
Polat, Hakan; Tosun, Nail; Ceylan, Doga; Keysan, Ozan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-06-01)
A rail geometry with a convex cross section instead of a rectangular one provides a higher contact area, uniform current density, and less transition on the contact surface, and it increases the performance in electromagnetic launchers. In addition, the design of convex rails should be considered together with armature structure, the distance between rails, rail length, and parasitic masses that all have an influence on the overall efficiency and armature/rail transition. A novel complete rail and launch pa...
Investigation of on-wafer TRL calibration accuracy dependence on transitions and probe positioning
Atasoy, H.I.; Unlu, M.; Topalli, K.; Istanbulluoglu, I.; Temocin, E.U.; Bayraktar, O.; Demir, Şimşek; Civi, O.; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Akın, Tayfun (2006-09-12)
This paper presents the effects of various transition types from the measurement plane to the reference plane in TRL calibration and probe positioning effects for on wafer measurements of CPW based devices. Fourteen different transition types, with direct, linear and exponential transitions, including 3 different variations of ground-signal-ground (GSG) spacing are examined. To observe the performance of the transitions, simple CPW transmission lines of different characteristic impedances are fabricated usi...

Sabah, Cumali; Taygur, Mehmet Mert; ZORAL, EMİNE YEŞİM (2015-04-13)
A microwave metamaterial (MTM) based on H-shaped resonator in a waveguide configuration is introduced and investigated both numerically and experimentally for X-band frequencies. The proposed model is designed and fabricated on both sides of the substrate and exhibits strong magnetic resonance at around 10.5GHz. Additionally, it has very simple design which improves and simplifies the fabrication process. Besides, only one single slab is used in the simulation and experiment which provides a reduction in th...
