A simplified dynamic analysis of a moving web which neglects materials properties is presented, and the transfer functions of several fundamental elements of lateral web behavior are derived. The transfer functions facilitate analysis of a wide variety of web guide control systems, and examples of two practical systems are given. The idealized analysis is useful for a qualitative understanding, and in most situations is sufficiently accurate for current needs of engineering analysis.
