The ASME 2013 Power Transmission and Gearing Conference is an integral part of the ASME International Design Engineering Technical Conferences and Computers and Information in Engineering Conferences (2013 IDETC/CIE). This event will take place in Portland, Oregon, August 4-7, 2013. For more details please visit ASME 2013. On Sunday August 4th Alex Kapelevich will present the workshop W14, titled "Introduction to Direct Gear Design" On Monday August 5th Alex Kapelevich together with co-authors will present the paper titled "Modernization of Helicopter Gearbox with Asymmetric Tooth Gears."
The book titled Direct Gear Design, CRC Press, 2013 is now available at CRC Press (20% discount Promo Code AQM80) and Amazon. This book presents a unique alternative to traditional gear design, the Direct Gear Design method. This method has been successfully implemented in a wide variety of custom gear transmissions over the past 30 years. The results of its implementation are maximized gear drive performance, increased transmission load capacity and efficiency, and reduced size and weight.
