Abstract:

This report documents a four-phase effort in the development of an advanced technology coupling. A coupling surveydesign and operational requirements definition conceptual and detail design fabrication static testing and dynamic testing was conducted. Two concepts out of seven developed in the program were chosen for fabrication and testing. One coupling, a composite flexure element design, successfully completed a basic dynamic performance test and demonstrated superior operational capability to a stainless steeel counterpart. Author
