Title Identification of noise sources in toothed belt drives
Original title Ermittlung der Gerńuschursachen von Zahnriementrieben [in German]
Bibliographic information 1989, Vol.111, No.3/4, p.22-26. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract Evaluation of a large number of noise measurements on toothed belt drives led to identification of the major noise source: the impact of the belt on the teeth. At extremely high velocities, air circulation noise adds to the noise level. Coating of the teeth or the belt brought about noise reductions of approximately 10dB.
