 18 July 2013 05:03 PM philium Posts: 6 Joined: 22 November 2006 What is the relationship between the torque of the screw and the force exerted by the band? Thanks. 26 July 2013 05:56 PM sandip Posts: 21 Joined: 31 March 2013 If the force exerted by the band to the screw then the torque is directly proportional to the force. Torque = Force x Radius of screw. In the above relation Radius is constant. 02 November 2013 05:36 PM HarryJMacdonald Posts: 409 Joined: 15 May 2002 Surely the pitch of the thread is relevant. For a 45° pitch they would be the same, for more realistic pitch the force on the band is greater (apart from a big dose of friction reducing it again) 24 November 2013 01:41 PM kengreen Posts: 432 Joined: 15 April 2013 Sorry, fellas, At the moment I am not fit to pick this one apart; I suspect however that you are mixed up with sloppy use of terminology. To begin with the operating screw - the torque which is applied is translated via the screw-pitch into a linear force applied to the end of the band; this results in the band becoming restricted around the neck of the vessel. Next you must resolve that linear tension in the band into radial forces exerted by the band on the neck of the vessel? To take it further you need data on such things as coefficients of friction between surfaces from which you can calculate the necessary force/torque that is required to enable the band to overcome the critical value of friction and so allow the band to slip?

Then F=W x tan(a+b) a=friction angle, b=helix angle Final Relation T=d/2 x W x tan(a+b) This may help. Sandip Roy MIET
