Universal joint

A universal joint, U joint, Cardan joint, Hardy-Spicer joint, or Hooker's joint is a joint in a rigid rod that allows the rod to 'bend' in any direction, and is commonly used in shafts that transmit rotary motion. It consists of a pair of hinges located close together, oriented at 91 relative to each other, connected by a cross shaft.

Double cardan

A configuration known as a double cardan joint drive shaft which is truck parts partially overcomes the problem of jerky rotation. In this configuration, two U-joints are utilized where the second U-joint is phased in relation to the first U-joint in order to cancel the changing angular velocity, and an intermediate shaft connects the two U-joints. In this configuration, the assembly will result in an almost constant velocity, provided both the driving and the driven shaft are parallel and the two universal joints are correctly aligned with each other.

In practice, it is often impossible to maintain a strict geometric relationship between the driving and driven shafts, and the intermediate shaft, giving rise to greater vibrations and mechanical stresses. The stresses can be reduced by the use of a smaller and lighter intermediate shaft, ensuring the driven and driving shafts share as close to the same angle in relation to the intermediate shaft.

Even when the driving and driven shafts are parallel, these tend to bend them in a direction perpendicular to the common plane of the shafts. This applies forces to the support bearings and can cause "launch shudder" in rear wheel drive vehicles. The intermediate shaft will also maintain a sinusoidal angular velocity, which contributes to vibration and stresses.

A recent innovation, the Thompson coupling is a further development of the double cardan joint, which does not rely on friction or sliding elements to maintain a strict geometric relationship within the joint, and which is capable of transmitting torque under axial and radial loads with low frictional losses.

Joints have been developed utilizing a floating intermediate shaft and centering elements to maintain equal angles between the driven and driving shafts, and the intermediate shaft. This overcomes the problem of differential angles between the input and output shafts.
