Abstract

Dynamic loads on spur gears are calculated by using an analytical model based on torsional vibrations of gears, and dynamic load variations during a mesh cycle of a tooth are determined. Variable stiffnesses of gear teeth, which are required for dynamic load calculations are found by using the finite element method. Contact stresses are calculated by using the analytical expressions developed for two elestic bodies held in contact by forces normal to the area of contact and accompanied by tangential (frictional) forces, and contact stress variations during a mesh cycle of a tooth are determined.
