## What is initial tension in belt drive?

The tension in the belt which is passing over the two pulleys i.e driver and follower when the pulleys are stationary is known as initial tension in the belt.

## How to Calculate Initial tension in the belt?

Initial tension in the belt calculator uses Initial tension of the belt=(Tensions in the tight side of belt+Tensions in the slack side of belt+(2*Centrifugal tension of belt))/2 to calculate the Initial tension of the belt, Initial tension in the belt is the tension in the belt which is passing over the two pulleys i.e driver and follower when the pulleys are stationary is known as initial tension in the belt. . Initial tension of the belt and is denoted by To symbol.

How to calculate Initial tension in the belt using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Initial tension in the belt, enter Tensions in the slack side of belt (T2), Tensions in the tight side of belt (T1) and Centrifugal tension of belt (Tc) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Initial tension in the belt calculation can be explained with given input values -> 27 = (20+10+(2*12))/2.

### FAQ

What is Initial tension in the belt?
Initial tension in the belt is the tension in the belt which is passing over the two pulleys i.e driver and follower when the pulleys are stationary is known as initial tension in the belt. and is represented as To=(T1+T2+(2*Tc))/2 or Initial tension of the belt=(Tensions in the tight side of belt+Tensions in the slack side of belt+(2*Centrifugal tension of belt))/2. Tensions in the slack side of belt is described as the pulling force transmitted axially by the means of a string, a cable, chain, or similar one-dimensional continuous object, or by each end of a rod, truss member, or similar three-dimensional object, Tensions in the tight side of belt is described as the pulling force transmitted axially by the means of a string, a cable, chain, or similar one-dimensional continuous object, or by each end of a rod, truss member, or similar three-dimensional object and Centrifugal tension of belt is the tension caused by centrifugal force.
How to calculate Initial tension in the belt?
Initial tension in the belt is the tension in the belt which is passing over the two pulleys i.e driver and follower when the pulleys are stationary is known as initial tension in the belt. is calculated using Initial tension of the belt=(Tensions in the tight side of belt+Tensions in the slack side of belt+(2*Centrifugal tension of belt))/2. To calculate Initial tension in the belt, you need Tensions in the slack side of belt (T2), Tensions in the tight side of belt (T1) and Centrifugal tension of belt (Tc). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Tensions in the slack side of belt, Tensions in the tight side of belt and Centrifugal tension of belt and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
