Analysis of selected dynamic features of a two-wheeled transmission system

Piotr Krawiec
The paper presents results of analysis of selected dynamic features of an uneven-running two-
-wheeled strand transmission. The characteristic features of such type of transmissions is the
ability of obtaining variable kinematic and dynamic features by the application of wheels
with a noncircular envelope. Particularly, high interest of application of uneven-running
transmissions was done in the previous century. At that time, a concept of application
of such transmissions for process and machine control was invented. The applications in
textile and engineering industry are widely known. A mathematical model of the multiplying
transmission is presented. Few versions of dynamic features of the transmission for different
loads and solid moments of inertia are examined. The presented results can be very helpful
for designers of classical and uneven-running strand transmissions.
