Band Brake Check

Rating:
0

Description


Checks band brake forces and stresses according to recognised formulae.
This is a very simple type of brake using the principle that a band is wrapped part round a rotating drum. Tension can be applied to the band using a lever. The restraining torque results from the difference in tension between the two ends of the belt.

Thank you for your debut calculation Jay. I have rewarded you with an XLC Pro (3M) subscription. I struggled a little to understand some of the terms in the calculation - a sketch would have helped enormously. I am still not quite sure what the dimension ‘b’ is?
I found a couple of links to other sites that helped me follow the calculation [url=”http://www.roymech.co.uk/Useful_Tables/Drive/Band_Brakes.html”] Roymech[/url] and [url=”http://www.mech.uwa.edu.au/DANotes/brakes/intro/intro.html]DANotes[/url].
