Published Online: November 1, 2011
...Weiming Zhang A troublesome problem in flat belt transmission is a phenomenon known as skew, where the belt moves along the axial direction of the pulleys in operation. Skew usually is caused by angular misalignment of pulleys. Angular misalignment can be classified in two types, in-plane...

...Francesco Sorge; Marco Cammalleri A very common configuration of V-belt variators for motorcycles considers the correction of the belt tensioning depending on the resistant torque by means of suitable helical-shaped tracks allowing the driven half-pulleys to close/open. The theoretical model...

...Masanori Kagotani; Hiroyuki Ueda Helical synchronous belt drives are effective for reducing the noise and transmission error per single pitch of a pulley, as compared with conventional synchronous belt drives. However, the helix angle of the tooth trace causes axial belt movement. When the belt...

...Masanori Kagotani; Hiroyuki Ueda Synchronous belt drives are occasionally required to transmit rotation accurately and are often employed in bidirectional operation. For transmission error per single pitch of the pulley, a helical synchronous belt with a helix angle of the tooth trace is effective...

...G. Carbone; M. Scaraggi; L. Soria This paper deals with the strongly nonstationary squeeze of an oil film at the interface between the chain pin and pulley in chain belt continuously variable transmission. We concentrate on the squeeze motion as it occurs as soon as the pin enters the pulley groove...

...Francesco Sorge This paper proposes a theoretical description of the mechanical behavior of rubber belt variators during the speed ratio shift. Comparing with the steady operation, the mass conservation of the belt is completely reformulated considering an elementary dihedral control volume between...

...F. Sorge Belt drives work often with short center distances and very different wrap arcs so that high adherence characteristics are required at the belt-pulley contact. In addition, the belt flexural stiffness reduces the contact width, but this decrease may be compensated in part by the belt...

...Carlo Innocenti; Davide Paganelli The paper presents a new procedure to design a two-pulley synchronous belt transmission connecting, with no belt tensioner, two parallel-axis shafts with a variable velocity ratio. The procedure takes into account the limited number of choices for pitch and length...
