Geometry of silent chain - involute sprocket


Lenard Jurj, Radu Velicu, Radu Săulescu

Silent chains tend to have more and more usage in automotive industry. The study of these types of chains has a lot to consider due to the fact that silent chains are not standardized yet. The aim of this paper is to study and analyse the theoretical contact point between a silent chain’s toothed plate and an involute sprocket. Varying different parameters of the chain and sprocket, there will be studied its effects on the theoretical contact point and the sprocket’s profile geometry.
