  • TITLE: Calculation on Variable Sag in Chain Drives

    AUTHORS: Changfa Rong

    KEYWORDS: Chain Drives, Variable Sag, Computer-Aided Analysis

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Access Library Journal, Vol.3 No.5, May 10, 2016

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a computer-aided analysis to calculate sag in chain drives exactly, which is commonly used in mechanical power transmission. With sprocket rotating, sag in chain drives is different. Sag is a function of meshing position of chain and sprocket. Because sag in chain drives is a variable, the maximum and minimum sag can be obtained by numerical calculation. Corresponding tensions in slack chain are obtained. A computer programme to calculate sag and tensions in slack chain is programmed.
