The Operating Characteristics Of Gear-Type Couplings
This paper describes in condensed form the results of a research project initiated by the Forschungskuratorium Maschinenbau e. V. and carried out at the Institut fur Maschinenelemente und Konstruktionslehre of Darmstadt Technical University under the direction of Prof. Dr.-Ing. G. Pahl with the financial support of the Federal German Ministry of Economics via the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen (AIF No. 2501). The research team for "gear-type couplings" headed by Ing. (grad) R. Wickl had overall responsibility for the project. The day-to-day work of the project was under the direction of Dipl.-Ing. R. Heinz and Dipl.-Ing. R. Fleiss. The contents and the calculation instructions are based on their theses.
