The amount of curvature of synchronous belt cords was investigated to understand the fatigue failure mechanism of synchronous belts. At the first step, the curvatures of cords were measured under various mating conditions of belts and pulleys. Then, we analysed the amounts of curvature using a simple mechanical model. The belts used in this study were round-tooth (STPD) with 8mm tooth pitch for high torque drives of automotive engines. The cords were constructed from eleven stranded glass filaments. One stranded glass filament was made of 600 glass fibers. The processing compound of the cords was RFL.
