Dipl.-Ing. Peter Knecht

Dipl.-Ing. Peter Knecht studied mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University and Politecnico di Milano. In 2011 he began working as a scientific research assistant in the gear department of the Laboratory of Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL). Since 2014 he is team leader of the gear testing research group. Knecht's fields of research are tooth contact analysis and NVH behavior of gears and transmissions.  (Bio last updated 2016-11-01 Contact Randy Stott, Managing Editor, with changes.)

    In the design process of transmissions, one major criterion is the resulting noise emission of the powertrain due to gear excitation. Within the past years, much investigation has shown that the noise emission can be attributed to quasi-static transmission error. Therefore, the transmission error can be used for a tooth contact analysis in the design process, as well as a characteristic value for quality assurance by experimental inspections.
