V-Belts Design Requirements for Power Requirements, Angle Between Sheave
V-belts are used to transmit power from motors to machinery. Sheaves have a V-groove. Pulleys have a flat circumference. A V-belt may be used in combination with a drive sheave on a motor shaft and a pulley on the driven shaft.
Equation and Calculator to determine the minimum number of v-belts, v-belts power requirements, angle between the two sheave pulley's.
