Calculating the length of an open belt drive is a common thing in Mechanical Engineering. It was of those crucial parameters in the determining the transmission of power by belts and ropes.
In our world today, there are a lot of mechanical engines making use of belts and I believe as a Mechanical Engineer having access to Nickzom Calculator+ is one of the best tools to make lifer easier, faster and simpler.
Nickzom Calculator+ (Professional Version) – The Calculator Encyclopedia can solve over 10,000 calculations for a day to day Mechanical Engineer and today I would show you the steps on how to get the answer for the length of an open belt drive using Nickzom Calculator.
First and Foremost, you need to have access to Nickzom Calculator+ via any of these means:
You must also know that to get the length of an open belt drive there are 3 major parameters you need which are:
- Distance between the Centres of the Larger and Smaller Pullerys
- Radius of the Larger Pulley
- Radius of the Smaller Pulley
Once, you have access to the professional version of Nickzom Calculator via any means, move over to the calculator map, then scroll to the Engineering section and click on Mechanical.
On clicking on Mechanical, you see a bunch of major topics that can be solved by Nickzom Calculator. Click on Transmission of Power by Belts and Ropes.
Proceed to click on Transmission of Power by Belts and Ropes, a new page or activity comes up. Scroll to Length of an Open Belt Drive and click on it.
Clicking the link opens up a page or activity for you to enter the values of the required parameters.
Now, enter the values of the required parameters
Lastly, click on Calculate for the result to be displayed.
As Simple As ABC!
