Selection procedure of V-belt
13.3.1 V - Belt Drives
Among flexible machine elements, perhaps V-belt drives have widest industrialapplication. These belts have trapezoidal cross section and do not have any joints. Therefore, these belts are manufactured only for certain standard lengths.To accommodate these belts the pulleys have V shaped grooves which makesthem relatively costlier. Multiple groove pulleys are available to accommodatenumber of belts, when large power transmission is required. V-belt drives aremost recommended for shorter center distances. In comparison to flat belt drives,these drives are slightly less efficient. V belt can have transmission ratio up to1:15 and belt slip is very small. As the belts are endless type, V-belt drives do notsuffer from any joint failure and are quiet in operation. V-belts constitute fabricand cords of cotton, nylon etc. and impregnated with rubber.
13.3.2 Nomenclature of V-belt
A typical V-belt section isshown in Fig.13.3.1. Thegeometrical features of the beltsection are indicated in thefigure. The pitch line, which isalso marked as N-A, is theneutral axis of the belt section.The design calculations for V-belt drives are based on thepitch line or the neutral axis.These belts are available invarious sections dependingupon power rating.
