  • A Study of the Dynamics of an Untuned Clock Mechanism

    2017. 65 pages.

    As a first approach to the study of untuned clock mechanisms, the physical behaviour of the verge-star wheel combination of the Lux clock mechanism was studied by means of a scaled-up model. Differential equations of motion for the motion were developed and solved. Curves showing typical motions were obtained. The dependence of equilibrium velocities (or equilibrium time delays) upon (1) applied torque, (2) star wheel moment of inertia, (3) verge moment of inertia, was studied.
