Gimbals and gimbal bearings are extensively used in components that are required to stay stable in unsteady conditions. These range from use in the NASA spacecraft engine gimbals, to shipboard applications such as the gyro compass and chronometers compensating for pitch, roll and yaw conditions.
Machine and Mechanism Design
From wind mills and steam engines and motors and turbines, mechanical engineers have been designing mechanical tools to make life easier since the beginning of time. Learn more about machine design including how mechanical engineers build a product from the design to finished work. We’ll explore combustion engines, common tools engineers use while building, and much more!
