Files: 9 movies (512 X 384 pixels). Each movie is provided in AVI and Quicktime format.
Description: These movies show a Ravigneaux compound planetary gear set, used in automatic transmissions. It is made of two planetary geartrains sharing the same ring gear (in the movies, the ring gear has been split in two parts to better see the inner mechanism). Each transmission ratio is shown by three movies: perspective view, front view and rear view.
The two yellow ring gears turn together. All planets (short and long) are on the same planet carrier.
