This online seminar takes place May 21, 2020 from 12:00 - 1:00 pm.

This online seminar will calculate and demonstrate the effect that shaft bending, torsional windup and tooth deflections have on loaded tooth contact on various configurations of parallel shaft spur and helical gearing. With the loaded tooth and shaft deflections identified in real life examples, tooth helix and profile modifications will be developed that, when properly manufactured and applied, will significantly improve loaded tooth mesh contact to support realistic load distribution factors used in rating of parallel shaft spur and helical gears. The process involves the application of commercially available software that models the loaded gear mesh in FEA. This evaluation and corrective action will promote optimization of power density with predictable fatigue life.

Class Learning Objectives:
•Discuss and review how loaded tooth and shaft deflections impact tooth mesh contact.
•Learn how to apply commercially available tooth mesh FEA software to model and calculate predicted load distribution factor Km for a gear drive.
•Determine corrective helix and profile modifications to counter act tooth deflections, improve Km and optimize power density of modeled gear drives.

A webcam on your computer equipped with a microphone and speakers/headset are required for participation. Space is limited to 20 participants per course. The course will be recorded and be available to participants for 30 days after course completion through the AGMA Learning Management System.
