BELT DRIVE - Computer Action Team

BELT DRIVE 1. A belt is a looped strip of flexible material, used to mechanically link two or more rotating shafts. 2. They may be used as: 1. a source of motion, 2. to efficiently transmit power, 3. or to track relative movement. Belts are looped over pulleys. 1. In a two pulley system,

1. the belt can either drive the pulleys in the same direction, 2. or the belt may be crossed, so that the direction of the shafts is opposite. Open versus cross belt drives OPEN BELT DRIVE

Belts on a Yanmar 2GM20 marine diesel engine Open belt drive Typical problem = calculate the length of the belt drive for given wheels system PROBLEM

Following are the details of a crossed belt drive. Calculate the length of the belt? Diameter of the driver : 200 mm Diameter of the follower : 400 mm

Center distance of the drive : 2m Speed of the driver : 400 rpm Angle of contact : 197.3 Determine the length of the belt.

Solution: D1 = 200 mm D2= 400 mm C = 2m N1 = 400 rpm Length of the belt = L =2C+ / 2 (D1+ D2) + (D1+ D2) / 4CD1+ D2) + (D1+ D2) + (D1+ D2) / 4CD1+ D2) / 4C = (D1+ D2) + (D1+ D2) / 4C2x2) + / 2 (D1+ D2) + (D1+ D2) / 4C0.2+ 0.4) + (D1+ D2) + (D1+ D2) / 4C0.2+ 0.4) / 4x2 = 4.99 m



USE BELT DRIVES? Advantages of belt drive 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

6. 7. They are simple. They are economical. Parallel shafts are not required. Overload and jam protection are provided. Noise and vibration are damped out. Machinery life is prolonged because load fluctuations are cushioned (D1+ D2) + (D1+ D2) / 4Cshock-absorbed).

They are lubrication-free. They require only low maintenance. They are highly efficient (D1+ D2) + (D1+ D2) / 4C9098%, usually 95%). Some misalignment is tolerable. They are very economical when shafts are separated by large distances. Disadvantages of belt drive 1. The angular-velocity ratio is not necessarily constant or

equal to the ratio of pulley diameters, because of belt slip and stretch. 2. Heat buildup occurs. Speed is limited to usually 7000 feet per minute (D1+ D2) + (D1+ D2) / 4C35 meters per second). Power transmission is limited to 370 kilowatts (D1+ D2) + (D1+ D2) / 4C500 horsepower). 3. 4. Operating temperatures are usually restricted to 31 to 185F (D1+ D2) + (D1+ D2) / 4C35 to 85C). 5. Some adjustment of center distance or use of an idler pulley

is necessary for wear and stretch compensation. 6. A means of disassembly must be provided to install endless belts. CHAIN DRIVES CHAIN Roller chainDRIVES

and sprocket Chain drive 1. Chain drive is a way of transmitting mechanical power from one place to another. 2. It is often used to convey power to the wheels of a vehicle, particularly bicycles and motorcycles. 3. It is also used in a wide variety of machines besides vehicles.

4. Most often, the power is conveyed by a roller chain, known as the drive chain, passing over a sprocket gear, with the teeth of the gear meshing with the holes in the links of the chain. 5. The gear is turned, and this pulls the chain putting mechanical force into the system.. system Possible Questions
