A Coupling may be a device that is answerable for the operative power transmission between 2 shafts rotating at explicit revolution. It is designed to accommodate large radial displacement between two shafts. Consisting of an arrangement of links and discs three discs rotating in unison, interconnected in series by six or more links a Schmidt coupling can adapt to wide variations in radial displacement while running under load. In operation, all three discs of a Schmidt coupling rotate with equal velocity. The bearing-mounted connections of links to discs are spaced 120° apart on same-diameter pitch circles. The constant-velocity relationship between input and output shafts joined by a Schmidt coupling is unaffected by changes in radial displacement. This relationship is equally unaffected by initial radial reaction forces that might otherwise imbalance the system. Mainly this Project enables a variable parallel offset between two shafts. They provide constant speed rate with extraordinarily low backlash, and their compact styles give giant floor area savings.
In this project we conduct static structural analysis by using ANSYS workbench and study the various stresses and strain. For these purpose modelling of the Schmidt coupling is carried out in Solid works and analysed in ANSYS Workbench.
