  • Understanding Limited Slip Differential

    Understanding Limited Slip Differential

    A limited-slip differential (LSD) allows the two output shafts to rotate at different speeds while limiting the maximum difference between them. it is also known as self-locking differential or differential lockout. In this article, you’ll get to know the definition, applications, diagram, types, working, advantages, and disadvantages of Limited slip differential. What is limited-slip differential…

    Understanding the term coupling

    The term “coupling” is common in the engineering world, it is known as a part that connects two shafts together in order to accurately transmit power. The transmission is done from the drive side to the driven side while absorbing the mounting error (misalignment), etc. of the two shafts. Coupling is used in almost all…

    Types of differential and their functions

    There are various types of differential suitable for a specific vehicle as they serve the purpose of transmitting the engine power to the wheels. In my previous post, the differential was explained to be a mechanism that transmits an engine’s torque to the wheels for the purpose of splitting the power, allowing the wheels to…
