Distribution of Tension and Frictional Forces Along a Model Band Track.
STEVENS INST OF TECH HOBOKEN N J DAVIDSON LAB
Pagination or Media Count:
A mathematical model was developed which would predict the tension distribution along a band track, and a physical model was designed, constructed, and used to investigate the accuracy of the mathematical model. The model appeared adequate in predicting tension distribution for a static vehicle, but did not predict the redistribution of tension when the vehicle was in motion. Modified author abstract
