Before proceeding with the mechanisms that Mr. Theodore Tsiriggakis has constructed based on his kinematical theory, we have created this educational section. Since the most well known mechanisms of Mr. Theodore Tsiriggakis are his Differentials, it is essential to dedicate several paragraphs to the conventional differential.

The Conventional Differential

The differential is one of the most critical parts of a vehicle and this is why humanity has been trying to construct the ideal differential from the first time that engine vehicles were constructed. After a long time of research human has achieved to construct the conventional differential that is used until nowadays!

There is no doubt that the conventional differential is an amazing concept, but nowadays more than ever before the modern vehicles disclose its disadvantages. This need has forced many companies to finance research in the field of transmission of motion.

Features of the conventional differential:

According to Mr. Theodore Tsiriggakis estimation, the ideal differential must be based on a kinematical theory that does not use gears. Gears can be easily converted into a rack and pinion railway and in this case the power of the engine will be transmitted to the one motive wheel.

Principles of the ideal differential

First principle:
The rotation of one axle shaft to the one direction results in the rotation of the other axle shaft to the opposite direction with the same angular velocity. Both axle shafts must belong to the same axis.

Second principle:
When we clamp one axle shaft and we rotate the other axle shaft then the revolutions of the rotated axle shaft must be strictly twice as many as the revolutions of the crown wheel (compass) of the differential.

Third principle:
A differential must accept instructions from factors outside the vehicle (road conditions) and instantaneously produce the differentiation to the motive wheels.

Fourth principle:
A differential must cooperate with the other vehicle mechanisms such as simple brakes, brakes using ABS system and others.

Fifth principle:
A differential must be able to be applied to any kind of vehicle such as passenger cars and heavy trucks.

The conventional differential follows all of the above principles apart from the third one. However, the Differential that Mr. Theodore Tsiriggakis has constructed follows all of the above principles.
