A constant velocity joint. It allows considerable misalignment within a drive train.

FALLING-SPHERE VISCOMETER

A viscometer which measures the speed of a spherical body falling with constant velocity in the fluid whose viscosity is to be determined. Also known as viscometer.

KAUERTZ ENGINE

A type of cat-andmouse rotary engine in which the pistons are vanes which are sections of a right circular cylinder; two pistons are attached to one rotor so K that they rotate with constant angular velocity, while the other two pistons are controlled by a gear-and-crank mechanism, so that angular velocity varies.

LINEAR SCANNING

Radar beam which moves with constant angular velocity through the area.

COEFFICIENT OF RESTITUTION

The constant e, which is the ratio of the relative velocity of two elastic spheres after direct impact to that before impact; e can vary from 0 to 1, with 1 equivalent to an elastic collision and 0 equivalent to a perfectly elastic collision. Also known as restitution coefficient.

NEWTONIAN REFERENCE FRAME

One of a set of reference frames with constant relative velocity and within which Newton's laws hold; the frames have a common time, and coordinates are related by the Galilean transformation rule.

CONSTRUCTION COST

The total costs, direct and indirect, associated with transforming A universal joint that transmits constant angular velocity from the driving to the driven shaft, such as the Bendix-Weiss universal joint.

GRADIENT WIND

Any horizontal wind velocity tangent to the contour line of a constant pressure surface (or to the isobar of a geopotential surface) at the point in question. At such points where the wind is gradient, the Coriolis force and the centrifugal force together exactly balance the horizontal pressure force.

BENDIX-WEISS UNIVERSAL JOINT

A universal joint that provides for constant angular velocity of the driven shaft by transmitting the torque through a set of four balls lying in the plane that contains the bisector of, and is perpendicular to, the plane of the angle between the shafts.

CONSTANT-VELOCITY RECORDING

A sound-recording method in which, for input signals of a given amplitude, the resulting recorded amplitude is inversely proportional to the frequency; the velocity of the cutting stylus is then constant for all input frequencies having that a design plan for material and equipment into a project ready for operation.

ELECTRIC DRIVE

A mechanism which transmits motion from one shaft to another and controls the velocity ratio of the shafts by electrical means.
