MEASURING STRESSES IN CARDAN SHAFTS

A radio telemetry system was developed by British Railways to collect stress data from rotating railcar cardan shafts under service conditions. Torque and bending data were simultaneously handled by amplitude modulation of two sub-carriers. The advantages of this system over conventional slip rings are the lack of difficulties associated with making, fitting and protecting sliprings from atmospheric pollution.
