  • An Untuned Clock Mechanism of Special Design, Part I; an Experimental Study of the Motion of an Untuned Clock

    2017. 23 pages.

    An untuned clock mechanism with specially designed verge faces is described. This mechanism operates in a symmetric cycle in reference to leading and trailing faces of the verge. A study of this verge design indicates a probable minimizing of the effects of geometrical variations of the leading face, observed with normal verges. Part II of this report represents some experimental results on the motions of verge and starwheel in the equilibrium cycle. (Author).

  • 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.
