A simulation method was proposed to predict the slippage and transversal vibration of the accessory drive belt. To reproduce these phenomena, the accessory drive belt was represented by a section-by-section model in which the belt was replaced by a finite number of masses and springs using multi-body dynamics simulation. In this model, the belt was able to vibrate in both the direction of advance and the direction perpendicular to it, and a friction contact element was defined between the pulley and the belt. The coefficient of friction was made variable with respect to the slippage speed to enable stick and slippage to be predicted. This method allows for accurate simulation of the amount of belt slippage and the amplitude of transversal vibration, thus enabling the optimum belt layout to be determined at the design stage.
