Title

Fatigue analysis of V-ribbed serpentine belt drive system

Abstract

"V-ribbed belt drive system provides an efficient means of transmitting power to front-end accessories common to modern automobiles. Fatigue failure and misalignment are the two primary issues that limit the performance and durability of V-ribbed belt drives. The focus of the present work is to develop a comprehensive fatigue crack growth model and to study the effect of misalignments"--Abstract, leaf iii.
