Effects of Profile Corrections on Peak-to-Peak Transmission Error
The article "Effects of Profile Corrections on Peak-to-Peak Transmission Error" appeared in the July 2010 issue of Gear Technology.
Profile corrections on gears are a commonly used method to reduce transmission error, contact shock, and scoring risk. There are different types of profile corrections. It is a known fact that the type of profile correction used will have a strong influence on the resulting transmission error. The degree of this influence may be determined by calculating tooth loading during mesh. The current method for this calculation is very complicated and time consuming; however, a new approach has been developed that could reduce the calculation time.
