Coupla flat belt queations

Recommended Posts


You are quite correct that belt thickness would make a difference on a V-belt setup with grooved pulleys. In that case, you have to figure out the point of contact on the sheave and various belt cross sections would affect final speed.

Browning Gear used to have a really good book on figuring belt and pulley sizes - it might be online as a .PDF on their website. Machinery's Handbook also had the same info (at least they did in the 22nd edition).
