Analysis and Optimization of Contact Ratio of Asymmetric Gears - March/April 2017

The article "Analysis and Optimization of Contact Ratio of Asymmetric Gears" appeared in the March/April 2017 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
This article presents an analysis of asymmetric tooth gears considering the effective contact ratio that is also affected by bending and contact tooth deflections. The goal is to find an optimal solution for high performance gear drives, which would combine high load capacity and efficiency, as well as low transmission error (which affects gear noise and vibration).

Keywords
asymmetric, contact ratio, transmission error, design, optimization
