TL;DR: In this article, a vehicle with a primary driveline that is configured to distribute rotary power to a first set of vehicle wheels, a power transmitting device and a secondary drivelines that are selectively coupled to the input member of the vehicle to receive power therefrom, is presented.
Abstract: A vehicle with a primary driveline that is configured to distribute rotary power to a first set of vehicle wheels, a power transmitting device and a secondary driveline that is configured to distribute power to a second set of vehicle wheels. The power transmitting device has an input member, which is driven by the primary driveline, and an output member that is selectively coupled to the input member to receive rotary power therefrom. The secondary driveline has a propshaft, an axle input, a pair of axle shafts and at least one torque transfer device. The propshaft transmits rotary power between the output member of the power transmitting device and the axle input. The axle shafts are rotatably coupled to an output of the differential and configured to transmit rotary power to the second set of vehicle wheels. The at least one torque transfer device is configured to selectively inhibit torque transmission between the axle input and the second set of vehicle wheels.

TL;DR: In this article, an electric motor with a planetary gear set consisting of a sun gear, a ring gear and a planet carrier rotating on a wheel spindle has been described, where the sun gear has a plurality of gear teeth that engage with the planet gears.
Abstract: An electric wheel motor assembly generally includes a planetary gear set having a sun gear, a ring gear and a planet carrier that rotateably supports a plurality of planet gears. A portion of a wheel spindle includes the ring gear that is maintained in a non rotating condition. A first wheel bearing and a second wheel bearing rotatably support the planet carrier on the wheel spindle. The first wheel bearing defines a first plane that extends radially therefrom and the second wheel bearing defines a second plane that extends radially therefrom. An electric motor has a stator and a rotor. A portion of the rotor includes the sun gear. The sun gear has a plurality of gear teeth that engages with the planet gears. The plurality of gear teeth on the sun gear is disposed between the first plane and the second plane.

TL;DR: In this paper, the influence of rim thickness on ring gear stresses and deflections and planet load sharing is quantified together with the interactions between the rim flexibility and the spline conditions, and the results from this study confirm that the ring gear deflection and support conditions must be included in the design process as one of the major factors.
Abstract: In this study, results of an experimental and theoretical study on the influence of rim thickness of the ring gear on rim deflections and stresses and planet load sharing of a planetary gear set are presented. The experimental study consists of measurement of ring gear deflections and strains for gear sets having various numbers of planets, different ring gear rim thicknesses, as well as various carrier pinhole position errors. Root and hoop strain gauges and displacement probes are placed at various locations so that the variations due to external splines of the stationary ring gear can also be quantified. A family of quasistatic deformable-body models of the test planetary gear sets is developed to simulate the experiments. The predictions and measurements are compared with the assessment of the accuracy of the models within wide ranges of parameters. The influence of rim thickness on ring gear stresses and deflections and planet load sharing are quantified together with the interactions between the rim flexibility and the spline conditions. The results from this study confirm that the ring gear deflections and the ring gear support conditions must be included in the design process as one of the major factors.
