Power transmission of a belt drive

0
In this article, learn more about the power transmission in belt drives and the necessary pretensioning force. Circumferential force in the belt In belt drives, forces are transmitted from the input pulley to...
Addition of the centrifugal forces and the centrifugal belt force

Centrifugal forces in the belt of a belt drive

0
At high speeds, the centrifugal forces acting on the belt reduce the contact pressure and thus the maximum transmittable circumferential force. Formation of centrifugal forces With a belt drive in a resting state,...
