ELASTIC AND SAFETY COUPLING WITH ELASTIC RUBBER ELEMENTS

Stroe Ioan

Abstract


The paper presents a mechanical coupling with elastic intermediate elements. The coupling through the
constructive form and the intermediate elements components combine the functions of two mechanical
couplings. In mechanical transmissions the reduction of shocks and torsional vibrations is realized using elastic couplings.
Load decoupling at the occurrence of defects in the mechanical transmission is achieved by means of safety couplings. The
combination of the functions of the two couplings is achieved by the series or parallel connection of an elastic coupling and a
safety one resulting in a combined coupling. The structure of the elastic and safety coupling of rubber elements in the form of
shoelaces is presented. The torque that the coupling transmits is determined. The elastic characteristic and the loadingunloading
curve highlight the properties of the new coupling.
