Computer Aided Design, Couplings, Couplingcad, Equations
The research work explores computer-aided approach to the design of ten different couplings, viz a viz: flange, solid rigid, hollow rigid, old ham/ cross-sliding, pin type flexible, sleeve, seller cone/ compression, split muff, pulley flange and fairbian’s lap-box couplings. The approach utilizes standard design equations of these couplings and link them together in computer software to determine the design parameters of the couplings. The work reviews the procedural steps involved in the design of couplings and the development of the software package using java as a tool for the design and dratfting of couplings. The design software named COUPLINGCAD combines computational with sketch template of a single process so as to generate the required parameters of the couplings. The COUPLINGCAD was tested with a number of case studies and the results obtained therein were quite satisfactory.
