This 2.5” ID tube SKU 35152-GTRQ, was tested in a destructive failure test where the universal joints were removed and the shafts placed in a “pinned” yoke fixture. This destructive testing resulted in a sample average torsional strength to be 3267 lb/ft. Failure occurred in the tube when the adhesive broke and caused the yoke to slip inside the tube. This failure mode was unsatisfactory to us so we tested again with a ¾” bolt inserted through each of the bonded in yokes and carbon. This test resulted in a slightly higher strength and failure was caused by the adhesive breaking and the bolt being ripped through the carbon.
We cannot supply any layup details for the filament wound tubing at this time.
