# C.V JOINT

 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.
