OZAETA EIDELMAN, Alejandro; FLOREZ GARCIA, Luis Carlos  and  HIGUERA COBOS, Oscar Fabián. Power transmission V-Belt's design and generation in SolidWorks by a Visual Basic application. Rev. Fac. ing. [online]. 2013, vol.22, n.35, pp.35-46. ISSN 0121-1129.

This article presents the design procedure for V-belt's power transmission, according to standard BS 3790, by using an application developed in the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and applying the Visual Basic programming language. The program utilizes the transmission input operating parameters provided by the user, and by the standard calculations and a database made up of several catalogs of pulleys and belts, it shows all transmissions admitted which meet the requirements, it also allows a solid model generation of each transmission in SolidWorks.

Keywords : V-belt; Power Transmission; SolidWorks; Visual Basic.
