Theoretical Investigation Of The Static Calculation Of A Composite Rolling Chain Drive Roller
The article describes a static and dynamic calculation of the composite roller of the chain drive. The formulas which determine the internal force factors generated in the transversal section of the composite roller under the influence of external loading were obtained. According to the physico-mechanical parameters of the roller, the deformation and internal force factors occurring in the cross section at different values of the elasticity coefficient of the elastic element were determined. In the program MAPLE-17 the required connection graphs are obtained. Under the impact of compressive forces of the teeth of the sprocket, the deformation and internal force factors of the chain drive roller are reduced to 7 ÷ 20 due to the presence of a flexible element.
