Differential Band Brake Equation

In this case the dimensions can be chosen so that the brake is ‘self-locking’, i.e. no force is required, or it can operate in the opposite direction.

Where:
T= braking torque
F = applied force
N = speed of rotation
a = lever arm
r = drum radius
c = distance from belt attachment to fulcrum
µ = coefficient of friction
