Abstract : Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department s MAE 416 senior design section at NC State University will redesign and build a prototype of the half-shaft assembly for SUPACAT HMT 400/600 for the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) under the Combat Development Directive (CDD). The new design is to eliminate failure of half-shaft joints and related components while maintaining current articulation angles, torque capacity, part interchangeability, and compatibility with existing drive train connections.
