Local 3-D Flank Form Optimizations for Bevel Gears - September/October 2003
The article "Local 3-D Flank Form Optimizations for Bevel Gears " appeared in the September/October 2003 issue of Gear Technology.
Optimizing the running behavior of bevel and hypoid gears means improving both noise behavior and load carrying capacity. Since load deflections change the relative position of pinion and ring gear, the position of the contact pattern will depend on the torque. Different contact positions require local 3-D flank form optimizations for improving a gear set.
