Coefficient of friction of a flat belt and of a vee belt

  1. Apr 8, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Coefficient of friction of a flat belt and of a vee belt

    2. Relevant equations

    I know the lap angle, m2, T2, T1/T2 and ln (T1/T2) for the flat belt and lap angle, m2, T2, T1/T2 and ln (T1/T2)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I attempted to find it by plotting a graph using the lap angle and ln(t1/t2) but i don't think that is correct

    Hello CMC, welcome to PF :smile: !

    Could you be a bit more elaborate ? What is the complete problem statement, what variables occur, which ones are known/given, what relevant eqautions do you have in your toolbox, what precisely have you done and why do you think that it isn't correct ?

    On all counts you make it very difficult to assist you in a sensible way; please try again. Perhaps read the guidelines, too.

    To determine the coefficient of friction of the flat and V belt when used with the steel pulley, and to determine the effect of lap angle on the torque that can be transmitted for a given flat and vee belt drive arrangement.

    Well, what equations do you have available, what is your attempt at solution so far ?
    Is there a textbook, lecture notes, the web ?
