Tooth Root Stresses of Spiral Bevel Gears
The article "Tooth Root Stresses of Spiral Bevel Gears" appeared in the May/June 1988 issue of Gear Technology.
Service performance and load carrying capacity of bevel gears strongly depend on the size and position of the contact pattern. To provide an optimal contact pattern even under load, the gear design has to consider the relative displacements caused by deflections or thermal expansions expected under service conditions. That means that more or less lengthwise and heightwise crowning has to be applied on the bevel gear teeth.
