Contact Forces Analysis of an Analogous Huygens Pendulum Using Inverted Tooth Chain

Karim H. Shalaby, Simona Lache, and Florin Corciova
Abstract—The paper analyses and brings to light the importance of contact forces of the Inverted Tooth Chain (I.T.C.) plates on the sprocket wheel at different locations on the Analogue Huygens Pendulum, knowing that the contacts between plates and sprocket always cause vibrations and noise. The MSC ADAMS SOLVER/VIEW software, which is based on multibody dynamics, is used for simulating the contact forces. The simulation results lead to the conclusion that the contact between the plates of the inverted tooth chain (I.T.C.) and the sprocket produces elastic-plastic impacts.

Index Terms—Rigid multibody dynamics, contact forces, inverted tooth chain (I.T.C.), analogue huygens pendulum.
