Optimizing Gear Geometry for Minimum Transmission Error, Mesh Friction Losses and Scuffing Risk


Minimizing gear mesh friction losses is important if plant operating costs and environmental impact are to be minimized. This paper describes how a validated 3D FEA and TCA can be used to optimize cylindrical gears for low friction losses without compromising noise and power density. Some case studies are presented and generic procedures for minimizing losses are proposed. Future development and further validation work is discussed.
