Inclusion-Based Bending Strength Calculation of Gears - May 2017

The article "Inclusion-Based Bending Strength Calculation of Gears" appeared in the May 2017 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Reduced component weight and ever-increasing power density require a gear design on the border area of material capacity. In order to exploit the potential offered by modern construction materials, calculation methods for component strength must rely on a deeper understanding of fracture and material mechanics in contrast to empirical-analytical approaches.
