A dynamic analysis of the oscillations in a chain drive

Troedsson, Ingvar and Vedmar, Lars LU (2001) In Journal of Mechanical Design 123(3). p.395-401
Abstract
A model is presented in which the oscillations, and the forces thus produced, in a chain drive, working at moderate and high speed, can be calculated. Since the outer system affects the result it has been necessary to include this in the model. The mass of the chain is included in the model and both the gravitational forces and the inertia forces in the chain are taken into account. The elasticity in the links is included. The sprockets are connected by two spans, both of which have to be included in the model to fulfill the equilibrium equations for the rollers in contact with the sprockets. The position of the chain is given by the geometric conditions as well as the equilibrium condition. On the slack side a chain tensioner is used to... (More)
