Teruhiko Nakazawa, Shinji Yasuhara, Taizou Wakayama: Chain for continuously variable transmission. JTEKT CORPORATION, Oliff, June 28, 2016: US09377081

Adjacent chain elements transmit a tension by allowing two pins to contact each other. When a chain which has been in a linear state starts to bend, a contact point moves from one point to another. Such movement of the contact point generates a force couple. This force couple causes the rear end of ...
