Christoph Lohmann

Christoph Lohmann studied mechanical engineering at the University of Applied Sciences of the Lower Rhine in Krefeld and at the Ruhr University Bochum, graduating as a cooperative engineer-in-training at Bayer AG. He concluded his studies in 2012 with his master’s thesis — “Simulation of System Dynamics of Heavy Drivetrains with Multi-Body Simulation”— at SEW-Eurodrive GmbH & Co KG in Bruchsal. In 2012 he started as a research assistant at the Chair of Industrial and Automotive Drivetrains of Prof. P. Tenberge. Lohmann’s fields of research are tooth contact analysis, tooth profile modifications, fatigue failure and tribological stresses.  (Bio last updated 2015-06-01 Contact Randy Stott, Managing Editor, with changes.)

  • Optimal Modifications on Helical Gears for Good Load Distribution and Minimal Wear (June 2015)
    Helical gear teeth are affected by cratering wear — particularly in the regions of low oil film thicknesses, high flank pressures and high sliding speeds. The greatest wear occurs on the pinion — in the area of negative specific sliding. Here the tooth tip radius of the driven gear makes contact with the flank of the driving gear with maximum sliding speed and pressure.
