V -Belts are mostly used where a large
amount of power is to be transmitted by wedging action from one
pulley to another, when the two pulleys are near to each other.
In practice, the designer has to select a belt section from the
manufacturer's catalogue. This software package covers selection
of both the types of V-Belt Drives - Classical and Wedge section.
The number of belts can be varied as per the user's requirement.
While designing this package, service factor, arc of contact correction
and belt length correction factors have been considered. This package
enables you to select from an exhaustive range the appropriate drive
in terms of power, speed and size. System International (SI) units
are used throughout this package.
