RecurDyn Chain provides convenient and special functions to model and simulates the 3D chain drive system. The user can get the approximate analysis result in the real phenomenon by the efficient and advanced analysis method of RecurDyn Chain. Noise and vibration cause the main problems in chain systems because of higher speeds and lighter components. Especially, each component has characteristics of vibration according to the engine speed and loading condition.
