Rolling Cones with Point Paths for 1:3 Diameter Ratio
Kegelrollung, Axoide mit Punktbahnen, Hohl- und Vollkegel, Verhältnis 1:3
Date
1882
Description
The rolling of one circle on another in the plane produces epicycloid and hypocycloid point-paths. In this model, the rolling of non-planar circles is produced by the rolling of one cone inside another cone with a diameter ratio of 1:3. A point on the moving cone traces out a closed spatial curve or point path with three lobes. Similar point paths can be seen in models R- 3, and R-7. Point paths of non-planar rolling circles are important in the design of bevel gears, whose motion is equivalent to that of rolling cones. [Francis Moon 2004-10-25]
