Full Contact Analysis vs. Standard Load Capacity Calculation for Cylindrical Gears - November/December 2018

The article "Full Contact Analysis vs. Standard Load Capacity Calculation for Cylindrical Gears" appeared in the November/December 2018 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
In this paper local tooth contact analysis and standard calculation are used to determine the load capacity for the failure modes pitting, tooth root breakage, micropitting, and tooth flank fracture; analogies and differences between both approaches are shown. An example gearset is introduced to show the optimization potential that arises from using a combination of both methods. Difficulties in combining local approaches with standard methods are indicated. The example calculation demonstrates a valid possibility to optimize the gear design by using local tooth contact analysis while satisfying the requirement of documenting the load carrying capacity by standard calculations.
