MemoTo: Neil MatulaFrom: Haegen SpringSection #: 902Date: 3-20-2014Re: ChainsPurpose: To gain a better understanding of the chain and sprocket classification system, know the important parameters needed to classify a chain and sprocket, learn how to design a chain drive, and calculate things like RPM, HP, and Torque.Procedure: The lab is completed using a series of online catalogs to figure out the required information.Results: The Results of the lab are enclosed in the attached lab handoutsConclusions/ Recommendations: Accurate knowledge is required to operate and repair a chain drive system. Knowing what type of chain should be used, the correct pitch, and lubrication are key to an effective system. Real World Applications: By learning the chain and chain drive methodology it is possible to repair old systems. Say a chain on a bicycle broke and was unable to be repaired. A new chain would need to be ordered and the knowledge gained could aid in figuring out what chain would be appropriate. Also duringthe ordering process there are many different types of chains available. Knowing the difference between heavy duty, silent, double strand, and single strand would be crucial.
