Abstract:

Root cause analysis and development of recommended corrective actions for cracked flywheel housings and driveshaft universal joint failures in model M1078 2 12 ton Light Medium Tactical Vehicle 4X4 trucks are the primary focus of this report. The complex dynamic system required specialized instrumentation and mathematical modeling to help understand the problem and prescribe corrective actions. This report details the engineering investigation conducted by Michigan Scientific Corporation MSC and independently by Dr. John F. Martin of Michigan State University during the months of April 1998 through December 1998.
