Abstract

Roller chain and sprockets has important components of the drive system in production lines for any industries. Many problems which concerned to failure of roller chain and sprockets would break down the producing process. To understand every failure behavior might be used a long time of experience in production lines. Furthermore, some phenomena of failure cases for roller chain and sprockets were unpredictable by an analytic method. This research aimed to propose failure cases of roller chain and sprocket by simulation results. The new method for simulation of drive system was employed to analyze roller chain and a sprocket. The finite element method which was used to simulate behavior of failure parts was integrated with multi-body system of rigid parts in the driving system. The integration of simulation methods would explain failure cases of roller chain and a sprocket distinctively. Particularly, simulation results in many forms of the roller chain and a sprocket attachment would be good examples for engineering study and design of drive system in a further work.
