Approach to the Main Transmission Phenomena for Timing Chain Drive Systems 2014-36-0766

More and more, the automotive vehicle consumers tend to opt for internal combustion engines which use chain in their timing system, since the chain drive system presents high durability, avoiding the usual maintenance common to the belt timing system. The necessity of developing parts which increase the fuel consumption efficiency and minimize noise and vibration leads to the study and comprehension of some physical phenomena such as “polygonal action” and the ability of predicting the fluctuation of angular velocity of the sprockets used for timing the crankshaft and camshaft. The study of mathematic models in parallel to the physical test guides the development of the present work.
