Tangential slip noise of V-ribbed belts

By K.W. Dalgarno, R.B. Moore and Andrew J. Day


This paper reports the results of a study into V-ribbed belt noise generated as a result of\ud tangential belt slip. The results of experimental studies to identify the belt operating conditions\ud associated with belt noise are presented, together with the results of analytical studies to identify the\ud mechanism of noise generation. It is concluded that tangential slip V-ribbed belt noise generation is\ud controlled only by the amount of slip, and that the mechanism of noise generation is harmonic\ud excitation of the fundamental vibration mode of the belt, with stick¿slip frictional behaviour providing\ud the impetus for the vibratio
