The breaking torque is an essential property that identifies the strength of driveshafts under high torque loads. In the breaking torsion test, the constant velocity joint of the driveshafts is usually loaded slowly at a very slow rotating speed under a specific joint angle until it breaks. Under different joint angles, the Rzeppa type constant velocity joint, namely ball joints (BJ), will break at different positions and with different torques. Common results of fracture position include the shaft of the outer race, the shell of the outer race, and the cage column. Simultaneously, the plastic deformation caused by compressive stress occurs at the specific position of the ball track and the cage. In order to analyze the failure reason of the ball joint under a larger joint angle, the quasi-static finite element simulations and test methods are used to analyze the damage caused by stress distribution based on material properties. At the same time, through simulation analysis, the displacement and contact of internal parts can be used to find out the reasons for the imbalance of internal parts.
