Prediction of Dynamic Factors for Helical Gears in a High-Speed Multibody Gearbox System - May 2018

The article "Prediction of Dynamic Factors for Helical Gears in a High-Speed Multibody Gearbox System" appeared in the May 2018 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Accurate prediction of gear dynamic factors (also known as Kv factors) is necessary to be able to predict the fatigue life of gears. Standards-based calculations of gear dynamic factors have some limitations. In this paper we use a multibody dynamic model, with all 6 degrees of freedom (DOF) of a high-speed gearbox to calculate gear dynamic factors. The findings from this paper will help engineers to understand numerous factors that influence the prediction of dynamic factors and will help them to design more reliable gears.
