An Analysis of the Steady State Behavior of Tape Cartridges
The paper states and solves the differential equations relating tape tension to the radius of each section of the tape length. On the assumption that the cartridge is functioning in a steady state mode, it develops relations between the existing tape tension and the various tape parameters, e.g., friction coefficients, tape length, turntable radius, etc.
