Torque Absorbed by the Brake Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
torque = (Tension in the tight side of the band-Tension on loose Side)*Radius of the drum
τ = (T1-P2)*r
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Tension in the tight side of the band - Tension in the tight side of the band is described as the pulling force transmitted axially by the means of a string, a cable, chain etc. (Measured in Newton)
Tension on loose Side - Tension on loose Side is the tension present in the loose side of the Band in the Band Brakes. (Measured in Newton)
Radius of the drum - Radius of the drum is any of the line segments from its center to its perimeter, and in more modern usage, it is also their length. (Measured in Millimeter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Tension in the tight side of the band: 12 Newton --> 12 Newton No Conversion Required
Tension on loose Side: 50 Newton --> 50 Newton No Conversion Required
Radius of the drum: 10 Millimeter --> 0.01 Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
τ = (T1-P2)*r --> (12-50)*0.01
Evaluating ... ...
τ = -0.38
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
-0.38 Newton Meter --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
-0.38 Newton Meter <-- Torque

8 Band Brakes Calculators

Coefficient of Friction between the Friction Lining and the Brake Drum
coefficient_of_friction = ln(Tension in the tight side of the band/Tension on loose Side)/Angle of Wrap Go
Angle of Wrap When Tension on the Loose Side of the Band is Given
angle_of_wrap = ln(Tension in the tight side of the band/Tension on loose Side)/Coefficient of Friction Go
Tension on the Loose Side of the Band
tension_on_loose_side = Tension in the tight side of the band/e^(Coefficient of Friction*Angle of Wrap) Go
Tension of the Tight Side of the Band
tension_in_tight_side_band = Tension on loose Side*e^(Coefficient of Friction*Angle of Wrap) Go
Tension on the Loose Side of the Band When Torque Absorbed by the Brake is Given
tension_on_loose_side = Tension in the tight side of the band-(Torque/Radius of the drum) Go
Torque Absorbed by the Brake
torque = (Tension in the tight side of the band-Tension on loose Side)*Radius of the drum Go
Radius of Brake Drum When Torque Absorbed by the Brake is Given
radius_of_drum = Torque/(Tension in the tight side of the band-Tension on loose Side) Go
Tension on the Tight Side of the Band When Torque Absorbed by the Brake is Given
tension_in_tight_side_band = (Torque/Radius of the drum)+Tension on loose Side Go

Torque Absorbed by the Brake Formula

torque = (Tension in the tight side of the band-Tension on loose Side)*Radius of the drum
τ = (T1-P2)*r

Define a Band Brake?

Band Brake is defined as a friction brake used especially in vehicles, cranes, and hoists that consists of a flexible band around a revolving drum and is operated by tightening the band.

FAQ

What is Torque Absorbed by the Brake?
The Torque Absorbed by the Brake formula is defined as the torque absorbed by the brake during the brakes are applied and is represented as τ = (T1-P2)*r or torque = (Tension in the tight side of the band-Tension on loose Side)*Radius of the drum. Tension in the tight side of the band is described as the pulling force transmitted axially by the means of a string, a cable, chain etc, Tension on loose Side is the tension present in the loose side of the Band in the Band Brakes and Radius of the drum is any of the line segments from its center to its perimeter, and in more modern usage, it is also their length.
How to calculate Torque Absorbed by the Brake?
The Torque Absorbed by the Brake formula is defined as the torque absorbed by the brake during the brakes are applied is calculated using torque = (Tension in the tight side of the band-Tension on loose Side)*Radius of the drum. To calculate Torque Absorbed by the Brake, you need Tension in the tight side of the band (T1, Tension on loose Side (P2) and Radius of the drum (r).
