The Gear Dynamics and Gear Noise Short Course will be offered this year on the Ohio State campus from September 17 to 20, 2018. It has been offered for over 38 years and is considered extremely valuable for gear designers and noise specialists who encounter gear noise and transmission design problems. Attendees will learn how to design gears to minimize the major excitations of gear noise: transmission error, dynamic friction forces and shuttling forces. Fundamentals of gear noise generation and gear noise measurement will be covered along with topics on gear rattle, transmission dynamics and housing acoustics. This course includes extensive demonstrations of specialized gear analysis software in addition to the demonstrations of many Ohio State gear test rigs. A unique feature of the course is the interactive workshop session that invites attendees to discuss their specific gear and transmission noise concerns.
Cost: $2,200.00 per person (valid until July 31, 2018), after that the fee will be $2,400.00 per person.
