Part I of this paper (5) summarized the previous work and has described the theoretical and computational aspects of a computer-aided procedure which has been developed by the authors for the dynamic analysis of roller chain drives. Lagrange’s equations of motion have been derived by assuming the roller chain to behave as a series of masses lumped at the roller centers and connected by bars of constant axial stiffness. The equations of motion are solved in the time domain until steady state conditions are achieved.
