Exceed 'designed' speed ratio of timing belt

I'm trying to create a setup to transfer motion from a motor to a shaft that requires a much higher torque (bi-directional). The housing is about 6 inches long and the speed ratio needed will be ...

How do I calculate the velocity of the piston?

I have a system with a motor connected to the trapezoidal lead screw. The lead screw is connected to the tube which is connected to the piston. The piston has to pump 1000cc oil against a pressure of ...

Is there any way to simulate belt transsmition with non-circular cog?

I want to do a simulation of a transmission with toothed belt and elliptical gear. I've tried in Autodesk inventor by modeling wheels separately and then adding a belt with the "synchronous belt tool" ...

Can you use a flex (spider) coupler as a dog clutch in a motorbike/atv/go kart/lawn mower like setting?

My question is simple: I want to make a dog clutch system for a wakeboarding cable system and was wondering if a flex (spider) coupler could used? The power, velocity, torque is similar to a go kart /...
I've come across two equations that relate power transmitted with the belt tensions: \begin{align} P &= 10^{-3}(T_1 - T_2)(k)(v) \\ P &= 10^{-3}(T_1 - T_c)(k)(v) \end{align} As you can ...
