Torsional oscillations in mechanical power transmission systems are a significant source of dynamic loads which are harmful to the system performance. The effects can cause a drive shaft to become unstable and self-destructive at critical speeds. This research focuses on dynamic analysis of a nonlinear torsional flexible coupling with elastic links. The equations of motion are derived by means of Lagrange’s equation. These equations are used to obtain the quasi-static performance of torque vs. angular displacement at constant rotational velocity. An exact solution is also found for the phase-plane representation for free oscillation torque. The fluctuation ratios of input velocity vs. output velocity of the system are obtained for determining the system performance. The results of the analyses of steady running and transient oscillation performance are applied to the determination of optimum proportions of the couplings. Results are compared with those of rigid-link couplings to show the influence of elasticity of the link on dynamic behavior of the system.
