Loaded Behavior of Gears Made of Fiber-Reinforced PA6
July 1, 2014
This paper presents an original method for computing the loaded mechanical behavior of fiber reinforced polymer gears. Although thermoplastic gears are unsuitable for application transmitting
high torque, adding fibers can significantly increase their performance. The particular case of
polyamide 6 + 30% glass fibers is studied in this paper.
