Experimental and modeling techniques for belt longitudinal static stiffness, longitudinal dynamic stiffness and damping coefficient, bending stiffness, and friction coefficient between a pulley and a belt are presented. Two methods for measuring longitudinal dynamic stiffness and damping coefficient of a belt are used, and the experimental results are compared. Experimental results show that the longitudinal dynamic stiffness of a belt is dependent on belt length, pretension, excitation amplitude and excitation frequency, and the damping coefficient of a belt is dependent on excitation frequency. Two models are presented to model the dependence of longitudinal dynamic stiffness and damping coefficient of a belt on belt length, pretension, excitation amplitude and excitation frequency. The proposed model is validated by comparing the estimated dynamic stiffness and damping with the experiment data. Also, the measurements of belt bending stiffness are carried out and the influences of the belt length on the belt bending stiffness are investigated. One test rig for measuring friction coefficient between a pulley and a belt are designed and fabricated, and the friction coefficient between the groove side belt with the groove side pulley, and the flat side belt with a flat pulley is measured with the test rig. The influences of wrap angle between pulley and belt, pretension of belt and rotational speed of the pulley on the friction coefficient are measured and analyzed. Taking an engine front end accessory drive system (FEAD) as the research example for the accessory drive system, experimental methods and the static and dynamic characteristics for the FEAD with seven pulleys, a tensioner, and a serpentine belt are presented.
