A Numerical Approach to Analyze the Power Transmitting Mechanisms of a Metal Pushing V-Belt Type CVT 960720

Some theories on the behaviour of CVT using metal pushing V-belts have been recently drawn. However, our previous experiments did not well prove their prediction. A numerical model which can calculate all block motions of the belt was developed in this paper. Using this model, some steady states of power transmitting of CVT were calculated and compared with the previous experimental results. Satisfactory agreements were obtained between two results in all ratio. This model is effective to estimate the CVT response at steady states.
