Misalignment couplings for ship drive lines are installed between engine and gear or between gear and waterjet and transmit torque from one shaft to another while accommodating misalignment between the two shafts. The development process, the analysis and the in-service-experience of a new membrane type flexible coupling entirely made of advanced composite material are presented in this paper. The concept of this new coupling promises low mass, high misalignment capacity and good sound insulation compared to conventional couplings.
