how to design a sprocket teeth when you know roller diametre and pitch of the chain.I have a 400mm diametre wheel and i will use 40mm chain rollers.The chain will be a open loop so i want to know how to design the profile for the wheel teeth.
Helo I am making a 8-wheel vehicle moving on a hydraulic drive with two hydraulic motors. The transfer from the hydraulic motor to the wheel will be with a chains and a sprockets. To move 15 miles per hour to make a reduction 1:10 and I want to know:
1. Is it better to use 8 teeth and 76 teeth with 2 sprockets or use 4 sprockets to get that reduction? If I use 4 sprockets will lose more energy than I would use 2 sprockets?
2. How much is the optimum distance between 2 sprockets, how big is the permissible difference of teeth between the 2 sprockets?
