Belt 글 편집

RecurDyn/Belt is used in a wide variety of fields from automotive timing and front-end accessory drives to lawn mowers, washing machines, and road milling equipment. Modeling belt and pulley systems with other CAE software requires significant time. RecurDyn/Belt makes it easier to model and simulate simple to complex three-dimensional belt drive systems.

Belt simulation using RecurDyn/Belt

Belt simulation using RecurDyn/Belt


  • Graphical user interface for easy and fast model generation
  • Library of custom geometric entities:


  • Graphical or spreadsheet design of pulley and belt cross sections
  • Automatic belt assembly with contact
  • Efficient contact algorithms
  • Fast & robust solver
  • Plotting of contact forces and belt tension
  • Subsystem concept for efficient interaction with other model assemblies, such as in a complete engine model
  • 2D belt and 2D guide to improve the simulation speed
  • Flexible belt (Beam and Shell) to calculate the deformation of the belt

Easy Belt Generation Using RecurDyn/Belt

RecurDyn Belt-Creation 


  • Model & simulate sophisticated products quickly
  • Obtain dynamic load history for stress & fatigue analysis
  • Perform “what if” studies in order to refine:
    • pulley profile design
    • belt design
    • guide design
  • Study product dynamics:
    • transient conditions at start-up
    • failure conditions at high speed
  • Design tensioning devices to optimize belt tension
