..., non-smooth paths. Such paths can be traced by rigid-body or partially compliant mechanisms as well but the complexity, bulkiness and the presence of hinges is a disadvantage in terms of increased friction, backlash, need for lubrication, noise, and vibrations. In designing CCMs, both curved frame...

...-lubrication environment with three different gear lubricants. These tests were used to quantify the influence of these parameters on both load-dependent (mechanical), load-independent (spin), and total power loss. Trends in mechanical gear mesh efficiency and total gearbox efficiency were discussed in terms...
