Dependency of the Peak-to-Peak Transmission Error on the Type of Profile Correction and Transverse Contact Ratio of the Gear Pair


Profile corrections on gears are a commonly used method to reduce transmission error, contact shock, and scoring risk. There are different types of profile corrections. It is a known fact, that the type of profile correction used will have a strong influence on the resulting transmission error. The degree of this influence may be determined by calculating tooth loading during mesh. The current method for this calculation is very complicated and time consuming; however, a new approach has been developed which could reduce the calculation time.
This approach uses an algorithm which includes the conventional method for calculating tooth stiffness in regards to bending and shearing deformation, flattening due to Hertzian pressure, and tilting of the tooth in the gear body. The new method was tested by comparing its results with FEM and LVR.
This paper illustrates and discusses the results of this study. Furthermore the maximum local power losses are compared with the scoring safety calculated following the flash temperature criteria of AGMA 925 and DIN 3990.
