Influence of Hobbing Tool Generating Scallops on Root Fillet Stress Concentrations - July 2016

The article "Influence of Hobbing Tool Generating Scallops on Root Fillet Stress Concentrations" appeared in the July 2016 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
While designing gear and spline teeth, the root fillet area and the corresponding maximum tensile stress are primary design considerations for the gear designer. Root fillet tensile stress may be calculated using macro-geometry values such as module, minor diameter, effective fillet radius, face width, etc.

Keywords
