This Foreword is provided for informational purposes only and is not to be construed tobe part of any technical specification.V-Belts will transmit power satisfactorily over a wide range of tensions. An experienceduser can develop a “feel” when a drive is tensioned within this range. However, in orderto optimize belt life and performance and to avoid undue stress on shafts and bearingsit is desirable to calculate and measure belt tension based on drive loads. This standardprovides a method for calculating and measuring V-Belt tensions and for calculatingshaft loads associated with these tensions on two sheave locked center drives. Alocked center drive is one on which belt tension is adjusted by moving one of thesheaves on the drive and then “locking” it in place.Section 1 of this standard provides methods for calculating and measuring belt statictension on a two sheave locked center drive.Section 2 provides a method for calculating belt operating tensions on a two sheavelocked center drive running under load.Sections 3, 4, and 5 provide a method for calculating shaft loads, bearing loads, andoverhung loads for a two sheave locked center belt drive. The user can go directly tothese sections if belt tensions have already been determined by other methods.Suggestions for the improvement of or comments on this publication are welcome.They should be mailed to Mechanical Power Transmission Association, 6724 Lone OakBlvd., Naples, FL 34109 on company letterhead.
