In the previous sections, the development of conjugate bevel gearsets via hand calculations was
demonstrated. The goal of this exercise was to encourage the reader to gain a basic understanding of
the theory of bevel gears. This knowledge will help gear engineers to better judge bevel gear design
and their manufacturing methods.
In order to make the basis of this learning experience even more realistic, this chapter will convert
a conjugate bevel gearset into a gearset that is suitable in a real-world application. Length and profile
crowning will be applied to the conjugate flank surfaces. Just as in the previous chapter, all computations
are demonstrated as manual hand calculations. This also shows that bevel gear theory is not as
complicated as commonly assumed.
