A universal joint is a positive, mechanical connection between rotating shafts, which are usually not parallel, but intersecting. They are used to transmit motion, power, or both. The simplest and most common type is called the Yoke joint, Cardan joint or Hooke joint. It consists of two yokes, one on each shaft, connected by a cross-shaped intermediate member called the spider. The angle between the two shafts is called the operating angle. It Is generally, but not necessarily, constant during operation. Failed Yoke joint is the most common vehicles driveline problem. In this study, failure analysis of a universal joint yoke of an automobile power transmission would be carried out. For the determination of stress conditions at the failed section, stress analyses can also carried out by the finite element method.
