3.9 SUMMARY
The power transmission devices are belt drive, chain drive and gear drive. The belt
drive
is used when distance between the shaft axes is large and the
gear engagement, it may use sliding mesh arrangement, constant mesh
arrangement or synchromesh arrangement. Discussion of these arrangements is
beyond the scope of this course. We shall restrict ourse
