FE-Based Approaches for Tip Relief Design - August 2017

The article "FE-Based Approaches for Tip Relief Design" appeared in the August 2017 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
The deformation of the gear teeth due to load conditions may cause premature tooth meshing. This irregular tooth contact causes increased stress on the tooth flank. These adverse effects can be avoided by using defined flank modifications, designed by means of FE-based tooth contact analysis.
