Simulation Model for the Emulation of the Dynamic Behavior of Bevel Gears


The impact of bevel gear deviations on the noise excitation behavior can only be examined under varying working conditions such as different rotational speed and torque. The vibration excitation of bevel gears resulting from the tooth contact is primarily determined by the contact conditions and the stiffness properties of the gears. By the use of a detailed tooth contact analysis, the geometry based gear properties can be developed and provided for a dynamical analysis of the tooth mesh.

A model has been developed for the simulation of the dynamic behavior of bevel gears. With the aid of a load-free tooth contact analysis, the geometry-based part of the path excitation is determined. With a tooth contact analysis under load, the path excitation caused by deflections can be calculated. The geometry based part of the path excitation and a characteristic surface of the excitation values is created and provided for dynamic simulation.

This dynamic model is able to consider every deviation of the micro- and macrogeometry from the ideal flank topography, i.e., waves and/or grooves in the surface structure, in combination with two and three dimensional flank deviations like profile deviations, helix deviations and twists. It is also possible to consider the influence of friction and the contact impact caused by load and/or manufacturing errors with a test rig to verify the calculations.
