Sizing criterial for traction drivesA simplified traction drive fatigue analysis which was derived from the Lundberg-Palmgren theory is measured and the effects of rotational speed, multiplicity of contacts, and variation in the available traction coefficient on traction drive system life, size, and power capacity was investigated. Simplified equations are provided for determining the 90% survival life rating of steel traction drive contacts of arbitrary geometry. References to life modifying factors for material, lubrication, and traction will be made.
